Mon, 03 September 2012 Loncon 3

Loncon 3Yesterday at Chicon 7, the 70th World Science Fiction convention in Chicago, the membership voted for the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention to convene in London in 2014.

It will be called Loncon 3, and the Guests of Honour are Ian M Banks, John Clute, Malcolm Edwards, Chris Foss, Jeanne Gomoll, Robin Hobb, and Bryan Talbot.

Several months ago I was asked by the Division Head of Programming, James Bacon, to be the Head of the Comic Book Programme. I accepted the position without hestitation as it’s a chance to showcase the vibrancy and diversity of the comic book scene currently.

We’re already in discussions about the programme, and I hope those of you involved in the comic book industry who plan to attend Loncon 3, will register your interest in participating at the convention (after you sign up as a member of course!).

Here’s a video introducing the event and the line-up:

The 2012 Hugo Award winners were announced last night at Chicon 7. Congratulations to all the winners!
