TusCon 43 organizers announced last fall that George R.R. Martin will be the guest of honor at this year's conference, to be held Nov. 11-13.

Now celebrating it's 43rd year, the convention draws dedicated fans of science fiction, fantasy, and horror along with professional writers, film producers, artists, and reporters.

 Martin wrote "A Song of Ice and Fire," the international bestselling series of epic fantasy novels, which was adapted for cable television by HBO as “Game of Thrones.

 Organizers are limiting attendance to 500 to maintain "a small, friendly, quality convention experience."  Three-day memberships are $55; $27 for ages 6 to 15. Learn more about the conference, and other special guests, at tusconscificon.com
