Australian SF & Fantasy Conventions
So, set your preconceptions aside and read Bluefive's Newbie's Guide To SF Conventions. Cons are fun, but a lot more serious than you might think.
Conventions are listed in the order they occur each year. Some may be one-offs - check web sites for details. As the author of the Hal Spacejock series it's my duty to encourage sales of these highly desirable books, so I go along to arm-wrestle people into the dealers room. And to sell them copies of Andromeda Spaceways.
In all honesty, I go because I like attending cons.
Con 9 From Outer Space (Celebrating the golden age of science fiction movies, TV and radio)
Nullus Anxietas (Discworld Con, Vic)
Swancon (WA, my local con.)
If you run a con in Australia, please email me to have it listed.
