Because Mysterium is an event by fans, for fans, the Mysterium Committee is always looking for new ways to showcase the community’s creativity at the event. To that end, we will, for the first time, be providing a con book for attendees at the convention. In addition to information about the weekend’s events, we also want to add as much community content as possible. If you have a Myst- or Uru-related story or image you would like to share with the community, please send it to us using the submission form on this page.
In honor of Mysterium’s 10th anniversary, we are also creating a Mysterium Cookbook, which will be sold online to help cover the costs of the convention. If you have a Myst, Uru, or D’ni-themed recipe (or even something that could pass as a Myst, Uru, or D’ni-themed recipe), please send it to us using the submission form on this page.
Both books will be full-color 8.25″ x 10.75″ glossy magazine-style booklets, printed using an on-demand printing service called MagCloud. The con book will be included in the cost of registration, and given to each attendee who pre-registers. A limited number of books will be available for walk-in registrants, so if you want to have a con book at Mysterium, we recommend pre-registering to ensure you get one.
The cookbook will be sold separately through MagCloud before and after the convention, and anyone wishing to obtain a copy of the con book can do so after the convention, when it will be made available at cost. Proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will be put toward the cost of the convention.
Submissions for the Mysterium 2009 Con Book and Mysterium Cookbook must be submitted by May 31st to allow sufficient time for publication. Guidelines for submissions to these books can be found on the submission forms on our website at Mysterium.net.
