Edgar Award-winning author Sharyn McCrumb brings her storytelling talent and keen eye for satire to this hilarious spoof of the bizarre culture surrounding sci-fi/fantasy fandom. It all takes place at Rubicon, the science fiction and fantasy convention of your nightmares.Join the merriment, as medieval fantasy characters, tech geeks, and role playing gamers take over an innocent hotel for a weekend of nerdy, misfit fun. Just when you think things can't get any wilder, the guest of honor, gnome-like giant of fantasy literature Appin Dungannon, is murdered.
But who wouldn't want to kill Appin Dungannon? The celebrity sword-and-sorcery writer is a dedicated prima donna who's gone out of his way to offend his fawning fans. Lt. Ayhan has to find out which of the troubled trekkies, buxom bimbos, and fiendish elves has actually done Dungannon in. Luckily, he has help. With Ruth Ann Phimister's perfect comic delivery adding just the right zing, when you're not snickering to yourself, you'll be laughing out loud.
