There was no shortage of spectacle at the 25th annual Dragon*Con convention held over the Labor Day holiday in five downtown Atlanta hotels. Citizen photographer Lee Depkin spent two days at the event, which featured exhibits, panels, seminars and workshops related to science fiction and fantasy. "It's basically a huge costume party," said Depkin.
