Fantastic London
LonCon, August 2014

Proposals are welcome on "Fantastic London" for the academic programme at Loncon 3, the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention.

To reflect the history and population of London, the host city, the theme of the academic programme is 'Diversity'. We will be exploring science fiction, fantasy, horror, and all forms of speculative fiction, whether in novels, comics, television, and movies or in fanworks, art, radio plays, games, advertising, and music.

For these panels, we are particularly soliciting submissions examining any element of fantastic and speculative British literature before 1900.

Oh you lost God! You endless trace!
Only because in the end hate divided you
are we  now  nature's  mouth  and  listeners.  
~ Rilke, The Sonnets to Orpheus, 26

A 'trace'  can be that which has existed, and which is now past; or that which has passed, in the case of a track or a footprint; or that which copied or drawn or outlined, such as a map or a word in the sand. It can be used as a noun or a verb: as an object or concept, or an active process of discovery.
