MantiCon is an intimate Military Science Fiction and Fantasy Literary Convention, and also the sister convention to HonorCon in Raleigh, North Carolina. This celebration is held in beautiful Bloomington, Minnesota at the Hilton Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Mall of America, just across the street from the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge.
Organized and presented by the Second Fleet of THE ROYAL MANTICORAN NAVY: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, MantiCon has, in the past, developed a grand line-up of Authors and Media Guests such as David Weber, Timothy Zahn, Eric Flint, Marko Kloos, Walter Hunt, and Manu Intiraymi from Star Trek Voyager. Activities include Gaming, Movies, Panels, the Dealer’s Room, and more.
Come meet our Authors and Guests! We have a great night life featuring our famous ConSuite and Party Rooms. Friday evening's musical performance will Harisen Daiko, a local taiko (Japanese percussion) group from Minnesota.
Also, join us for the second annual nominations of the Rampant Manticore Award for Literary Military Fiction, Science Fiction and Fantasy, featuring the H. Beam Piper Memorial Award for Best Author in the Category of Literary Military Fiction, Science Fiction, and Fantasy!
