What is Minicon?

Minicon is a fan run science fiction convention run by the Minnesota Science Fiction Society and is held yearly on Easter weekend. Minicon 43 will be held March 21-23, 2008 at the Sheraton Bloomington Hotel in Bloomington, MN.

Minicon features panel discussions on a wide variety of topics, readings, gaming, an art show, dealers, kids’ programming, filk and folk music, a consuite and bar, movies, costumes, and room parties.

Our guests of honor are Alastair Reynolds, Nate Bucklin, and Shawna McCarthy. Unfortunately, Wayne Barlowe, our artist guest of honor, cannot make it. We apologize for this last minute change.

Volunteers Needed

Minicon is 100% volunteer run! If you’d like to help with planning for the convention, feel free to show up at any concom meeting.
