imageGay sci-fi and gaming fans enjoyed three days of reveling in their world last weekend during a convention in Atlanta.

Organizers say about 150 people attended OutlantaCon, which offered panels, gaming, vendors and well-known guests. Author Andy Mangels (right photo), best known for his work in the “Star Trek” universe, actress Tucky Williams (top) — think zombie killer Vix in “Dead Moon Rising” — and Eric Watts (bottom photo), who directs “Star Trek” programming for DragonCon, were just a few of the well-known personalities on hand.

To read more about the weekend, check out Fantasy magazine. A handful of OutlantaCon participants blogged about their experiences during the convention.

The weekend marked the first multi-day event for organizers, which hosted a one-day event last November. Up next for OutlantaCon is another one-day event set for Nov. 14.
