What is a Worldcon?

The World Science Fiction Convention (or Worldcon) is a lot more than just what the name suggests. The Worldcon is the gathering of thousands of people with a shared interest in things fantastic. Movies. Books. Science. Space. Television. Games. Costumes. Art. Anime. More... Much More!

Over the five jam-packed days and nights of the Worldcon, there will be over 600 program items, filled with information, fun, behind-the-scenes stories, and free-wheeling exchanges between the speakers and the audience.

Past Worldcons have included some of the top selling authors of science fiction, fantasy, and horror fiction including Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Marion Zimmer Bradley and Poul Anderson.

This year will be no different. Already confirmed guests include authors Connie Willis, Anne McCaffrey, Harlan Ellison, Larry Niven, Robert Silverberg, James Gurney, Harry Turtledove, George RR Martin and Greg Benford; comic book greats Marv Wolfman, Len Wein, and Bernie Wrightson; and filmmakers such as Battlestar Galactica's executive producer Ron Moore, The Shining director Mick Garris, Galaxy Quest writer Robert Gordon, actor Walter Koenig; and lots more.

The list keep growing as we get closer and closer to the convention.
