Sadly, due to circumstances beyond our control, Wylde Nept will be unable to join us this year.

But we are excited to announce that we have obtained the acclaimed geek-band, Cheshire Moon, to regale us with their own unique, original musical take on fandom and all things geekish.


To celebrate the 10th year of the Paradise ICON Writing Workshop, they are publishing an anthology that contains eight stories from workshop participants. As a thank you to ICON for hosting this workshop all proceeds from the sale of this anthology will be donated to ICON.
