ConQuesT46 & Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 4:
One City, One Block Apart, Same Weekend!

Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 4 and ConQuesT 46 are sharing downtown Kansas City on Memorial Day weekend, making our little corner of the universe the nexxus for all things science fictional and FANtastic!

With ConQuesT in the KC Downtown Marriott and SFAL4 just one block away in Bartle Hall, and with both conventions sharing the Marriott as our official hotel (!!!!), you never know who you might run into in the bar or in the elevators. GRRM, perhaps? Or Donato Giancola? Maybe Brandon Sanderson? How about Julie Dillon? Selena Rosen will be there, and we know Nene Thomas will definitely be in the house!

Members of either SFAL4 or ConQuesT 46 will be able to purchase tickets to the other show at a discount on-site throughout the weekend. See you there!
