HOSTS: Scott Nicolay and Anya Martin

Membership is limited to 100, and unlike other cons, everyone attends all activities, with no tough choices about missing a reading or panel. Your $100 symposium membership includes approximately 12 hours of panels, readings, special presentations, meals (continental breakfast, sandwich box lunch, mass author signing reception, buffet dinner), beverages, a Silver Scream FX Lab tour ,and a one-of-a-kind live performance emceed by Professor Morte (The Ghost Host with the Most of Silver Scream Spook Show). Members also will receive an exclusive collectible program chapbook including fiction, nonfiction, and art by guests/program participants.

Silver Scream FX Lab is where Shane Morton and his team design and create creatures, monster make-up, and props including most recently the Cheddar Goblin for the crazed Nicholas Cage cult hit Mandy (2018) and AdultSwim's Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell, Too Many Cooks, and more. More than the place where monsters are made, it's a floor-to-ceiling funhouse featuring an extensive museum including your favorite classic Universal and Toho monsters and much more!

All panels and readings will be featured on The Outer Dark weekly podcast which airs on This Is Horror, reaching thousands of listeners who are readers of Weird and speculative fiction.

IMPORTANT! Due to budgeting, memberships are nonrefundable but are transferrable. If you are unable to attend for any reason, please email us at with the name and email address of the individual will be attending in your place. We're also happy to help you find someone to buy your membership.

Note: It takes a Weird Village to put on an event like this. Membership rates are based on the cost of renting event space, catering, A/V rental costs, printing, meals for volunteers, and a program participant attendance assistance fund, and are supplemented by sponsorships and crowd-sourcing. Neither The Outer Dark nor our host network, This Is Horror, makes any profit on this event. In the unlikely circumstance that any proceeds in excess of expenses are raised, they will be used to seed the 2021 symposium or other The Outer Dark-sponsored activities.
