Libertarian Sci-Fi Fans, Come to Loscon 46

Come this November, I will once again be returning to Loscon, Los Angeles's premiere science fiction & fantasy convention, to host a screening of select horror films on the night of Friday, November 29th. Films will be chosen from among the winners of the 2019 Tabloid Witch Awards, which I manage.

Loscon has long been a favorite venue for KHC members, many whom have since passed on. Samuel E. Konkin used to publish a daily newsletter at Loscon for libertarian sci-fi fans. J. Neil Schulman screened Alongside Night at Loscon. Both were frequent participants.

As was Brad Linaweaver. I had a long conversation with Brad at one Loscon. I told him that no matter what else he wrote, he'd always be remembered for Moon of Ice. He agreed that was probably true.

Ben Pleasants attended a Tabloid Witch screening at Loscon, at my invite. We later discussed ways to promote his recently self-published books.

Those men are no longer with us. But John DeChancie and J. Kent Hastings are, and they too are frequent Loscon attendees. John will be on some panels at this upcoming Loscon.

I invite all KHC attendees to come to Loscon this Thanksgiving Day weekend, at the LAX Marriott Hotel. And drop by the Tabloid Witch Film Festival in the Los Angeles 1 Room on Friday night, 8 p.m., for some good horror short films, plus a feature.
