At approximately 12:10 pm EST today, SF32 finally slayed the great Xenomorph of time and is now finally free to succumb to a much needed (and long) rest. But we will rise again with SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK, the 7th Annual Ohio 24-Hour Horror Marathon this October 17-18. More info to come. In the meantime: zzzzzzzz.........

Greetings Marathoids!

What is the Sci Fi Marathon?

Transmitted by Jen

The Sci-Fi Marathon is an entire spin of our planet watching science fiction features, premieres, over-looked gems, vintage trash and classics, along with cartoons, shorts and previews of coming attractions from years gone by. Hundreds of prizes are awarded to all winners and entrants in the Annual Costume Contest, as well as other contests and competitions at random. Those who survive the entire 24 hours will also receive the much coveted Certificate of Marathoid Behavior to impress their friends. The devoted, demented Marathoid throng will return from far and wide to experience this year's 'thon. The communal comaraderie of this audience often makes the unbearable hilarious and the great even more glorious. Surviving the sleep-deprived ordeal with this crazed crowd brings us together in delightful, bizarre, and unexpected ways.
