At Pop Madness ETE will briefly interview people and ask three questions:

1. Sci-Fi or Fantasy and why?

2. Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy book, movie, series and why?

3. What is the answer to the question of the meaning of life, the universe, and everything?

ETE will also have a five question Sci-Fi and Fantasy trivia game. The first person to get all the questions correctly will get a big prize! Contestants getting fewer than five questions right will receive a small prize. 


Groups and Cosplayers will be scattered around the Con.
