Minicon 42: And the question was...?

What is Minicon?

Minicon is a fan run science fiction convention run by the Minnesota Science Fiction Society, or MN-Stf. It is held yearly on Easter weekend.

Minicon features panel discussions, readings, films, gaming (open and organized), an art show, dealers, kids' programming, filk and folk music, a consuite and bar, and room parties.
