Bob and Mary Booth invented The Northeast Regional Fantasy and Horror Convention (Necon) in 1980 after they ran the 1979 World Fantasy Convention. Attendance at Necon has always been capped at 200 participants, which adds to the convention’s close-knit atmosphere—but also creates a high demand for tickets. If you’ve never been able to attend this incredible summer gathering, The Big Book of Necon will give you a glimpse into what makes that convention so special. And if you’re already a Necon regular, this generous volume will bring back a lot of fond memories.
Featuring works from over 50 contributors, The Big Book of Necon provides hours of great horror/dark fantasy reading from some of the most important names in modern horror. Many of the short stories, essays, poems, and artwork originally appeared in the annual program booklet, which is exclusively printed for the attendees each year—and in the case of the Necon XX volume, with its rare appearance of Stephen King’s “The Old Dude’s Ticker,” now sells for as much as $250-$500 on eBay.
