Atlanta, GA June 19, 2018 – The Manticore Company, LTD (TMCL) and Axanar Productions are pleased to announce that TMCL’s newest convention, SphinxCon will include Axanar Productions’ Axacon as a unique, “convention-in-a-convention” on November 2 – 4, 2018 at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Airport.
SphinxCon is the newest intimate Literary Military Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention in Atlanta. It is the Annual Convention of The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association. Axacon is the official convention of Axanar, the Star Trek fan film dubbed “The Ultimate Fan Film” by Newsweek magazine.
“When Alec made the proposal for us to host Axacon, it made perfect sense” according to David Weiner, Convention Chairman for SphinxCon. “We had already come to an agreement with Alec to offer a private tour of the Axanar sets at OWC Studios to our Manticore Premier members and Convention guests, so when he proposed adding Axacon as a ‘convention-in-a-convention’, everyone thought it would be a win-win”.
Alec Peters was equally enthusiastic. “I read the first three Honor Harrington books when doing research for Axanar and love the universe. The chance to host Axacon with SphinxCon is really fantastic for fans. I think there will be a lot of crossover as fans of one franchise discover the other. “
