World Science Fiction Convention returns to London for first time in nearly 50 years

Worldcon returns to London in 2014 for the first time since 1965. More than 90 science fiction and fantasy artists will be exhibiting in the art show, including Chris Achilleos, Jim Burns, Chris Moore and Anne Sudworth, along with guests Chris Foss, Jeanne Gomoll and Bryan Talbot.

Worldcon Guests of Honour cover the fields of fiction, comics, art, criticism, publishing and fandom. Loncon 3 will celebrate the work of the late Iain M Banks, John Clute, Malcolm Edwards, Chris Foss, Jeanne Gomoll, Robin Hobb and Bryan Talbot.

Co-chair Alice Lawson said, “Loncon 3 will include the standard Worldcon fare, including a huge multi-track programme of panel discussions and talks, a world class art show, a huge area for dealers and exhibits, performances including dances, plays, and a masquerade, and of course the 2014 Hugo awards.”
She added, “Loncon 3 will also innovate. A massive hospitality space will bring the North American party scene and the European-style fan bar together in one place. In addition, Loncon 3 will present the RetrospectiveHugo Awards for 1939, celebrating the science fiction of the time of the very first Worldcon, held in New York 75 years before.”

Loncon 3 will be held beginning Thursday, August 14th through the 18th at the ExCel Conference Centre in London’s Docklands, UK.
