RESTRICTIONS REMOVED from September 29: The CON IS ON!
Here is the programme for the convention 19 – 21 November, 2021. There could still be minor changes.
Fantastika 2021 is an SF convention that will take place in Dieselverkstaden in Sickla near the center of Stockholm on November 19-21, 2021 (new dates). The venue has been used for SF conventions in 2013 ,2016, and 2018, and our goal is about the same type of convention. There will be programme on Friday 17.00 – 22.00, on Saturday 10.00 – 22.00, and on Sunday 10.00 – 17.00. After Closing on Sunday there will be a Dead Dog Party. We intend to have at least one English programme at all times.
Our Guests of Honour are Adrian Tchaikovsky, Peadar Ó Guilín, Eva Holmquist and Maria Nilson. Maria Nilson is unfortunately taken ill with a cold and fever, and will not be present at the convention. We are trying to arrange an interview via zoom and a lecture via the internet.
Memberships of the postponed convention Fantastika 2020 are automatically transferred to Fantastika 2021. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want a refund instead.
Bring books and fannish paraphernalia! You can give them to Bellis for the NoFF auction or get new ones at the trophy exchange.
