Can't make it to ArmadilloCon this year? Check out some of the festivities on PODcast at RevolutionSF.


Welcome to the ArmadilloCon 31 website. A place where you will become famous, fabulously wealthy, find true love and all of your dreams will come true. Okay, so maybe that won't happen, but you will at least find a portal into the world of weird in Austin, TX where once a year, the smartest people in town gather to celebrate their uniqueness and intelligence. Oh, and we talk about books too.

Wait, what?

A long time ago, some people who enjoyed the sci-fi genre got together and decided that Central Texas needed a literary sci-fi convention. SolarCon was born. Once those people figured out what they were doing (it took a couple of years), they created ArmadilloCon and it is still running to this day for a whole new fan base.

The primary focus of ArmadilloCon is literary science fiction, but that's not all we do -- we also pay attention to art, animation, science, media, and gaming. Every year, dozens of professional writers, artists and editors attend the convention. We invite you to attend the convention especially if you are a fan of reading, writing, meeting, sighting, feeding, knighting, and all the other things folks do at a sci-f/fantasy convention.

As an added bonus this year, we are one week after the 67th WorldCon in Montreal, so swing by Austin on your way home and meet the group that previous Fan Guest of Honor Patty Wells calls "those crazy Texans".Best of Austin
