Worldcon, aka the World Science Fiction Convention, is the annual international gathering of science fiction and fantasy fans, writers, artists, musicians and other creators. First held in New York City in 1939, Worldcon moves around the globe, held in a different city and organized by a different volunteer organization each year.

Worldcon has a strong emphasis on science fiction and fantasy literature, but has grown to include genre television, movies, animation, games and other popular media as well. It has truly become the world’s fair of science fiction and fantasy fandom. No other event brings together fans and creators, regardless of genre or medium, under one big tent with the face-to-face intimacy of Worldcon.

Worldcon 76 in San Jose has selected “Make the Future” as its theme. This is both a reference to the booming worldwide maker culture, which has strong roots in the San Francisco Bay Area, and a celebration of our belief that the choices we make together steer not only the fan community, but humanity in general, towards the brighter future we aspire to build.

Please join with us to make that future!

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
