BENT-CON wants your killers.

LMZ_CoverCrime is a wonderful thing. Well, not real crime. That sucks. But fictional crime, movie crime, book crime and comic-crime are mainstays of pop culture. They’ve been present at our event as well, we’ve just been a little remiss in celebrating twisted tales of murder, blackmail, and general thievery. That changes now.

For 2014, we’re encourage you LGBTQ folks running free in the Mystery and Thriller genres to bring your twists to this years’ event. We want to make certain that authors, panelists, artists and filmmakers who arrest criminals, write about murders, enlist blackmail, pursue serial killers or entice with deep mysteries, participate in BENT-CON 2014.
