Con Review: ICON 27

by Jennifer Moody


October 18-20, 2002
Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Iowa’s oldest SF/F convention once again raised the roof of the Cedar Rapids Clarion Hotel with a weekend full of events. Fantasy author Jennifer Roberson and SF/F artist John Garner were the Guests of Honor. Other noted guests included ICON “founding father” Joe Haldeman, Glen Cook, Denise Garner, Rusty Hevelin, Erin McKee, Ed Heil, and Mickey Zucker-Reichert. Highlights included performances by The Trans-Iowa Canal Company – Eastern Division and the Klingon Kultural Exchange; a premiere of the film The Gamers; Victorian Twilight: A Witch Hunt in London, an original LARP by Jeff Shirk; an artists’ work space; and a viewing of the ICON archives. Plans for ICON 28 are already in the works for October 10-12, 2003, again at the Cedar Rapids Clarion. Further details and on-line registration will be available at
