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.

Please send proposals to: londonfantastic@gmail.com
