The 58th Convention of the New York Science Fiction Society - the Lunarians (2), Inc., coming March 18-20, 2016 to the Hilton Westchester!


Lunacon 2016 has been over for a few weeks and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported us or attended our convention.

We know we did some things well, but we also know that we did not do some things well or do them at all.

This is your opportunity to tell us what you liked, disliked, what you would like us to do in the future, what we should change, anything you can think of.

Contact us at our feedback email address. Every email will be read and discussed at our debriefing on April 17.

Your opinions are valuable to us. Everything you tell us will help make future Lunacons a better experience for all.

Again, on behalf of the New York Science Fiction Society – the Lunarians (2), Inc. and the entire Lunacon 2016 Committee, we thank you.

Stuart C. Hellinger
President, New York Science Fiction Society – the Lunarians (2), Inc.
Executive Committee, Lunacon 2016

Programming is an ongoing adventure, and we've now reached the point where we can share a page on each of three of our big offerings:

Gaming - Our 24-hour tabletop gaming room, sporting over two hundred titles available, including three Discworld games to remember the legacy of Terry Pratchett.

Shadowcasting - It's ZEN Productions' fifth Lunacon.  Join us as they give another great Rocky Horror performance paired with a secret Friday night shadowcast surprise!

Vintage Film - A Leonard Nimoy film tribute, and a new fan-cut of Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe headlines the returning Movie Mike and his classic projections, which now include Anime content and discussions on empowerment in classic SF and weird stereotypes and expected technologies from futurist fiction of the 1800s.
