Swancon, or Doomcon as it’s known this year in keeping with the apocalyptic theme, is an annual sci-fi/fantasy convention here in Perth, Western Australia. Here’s how they describe it:
If you’re thinking anything from Douglas Adams to Dr Who, or Accelerando to Atlantis, you’re on the right page!
This Easter join amazing authors, pop-culture experts and fellow lovers of fantastic tales at the longest-running speculative fiction convention in the southern hemisphere.
Our amazing guest authors are Brandon Sanderson (Wheel of Time conclusion,Mistborn series) and Marianne de Pierres (Parrish Plessis series, Burn Bright series) and they’ll be on hand for presentations, discussion and a little mingling. Joining them as our fan guest of honour is the inimical Chris Creagh.
From April 5th to 9th, five days of literature, laughter, games and dance. Come with friends, meet new ones and enjoy it all in the luxury of the pre-apocalyptic Pan Pacific Hotel.
It’s mainly a novels and gaming weekend, but the comics focus is getting bigger, and this year, it includes little old me! I’ll be a panellist at two panels on Friday, which will cover comics for beginners, and the DC relaunch, and then on Sunday night I’ll be taking part in a live podcast event. I’m looking forward to it.
Here’s the programme and it’s only a gold coin donation to come on Friday, so come on by and say hello if you’re in the area!
