Hola Hispacon

Spain’s annual SF convention is taking place in Barcelona this weekend. The Guests of Honor are: Christopher Priest, Ian Watson, Aliette de Bodard, Nina Allan, Karin Tidbeck, Félix J. Palma. I’ll be interested to hear reports of it, as I’m hoping to be at the Eurocon in Barcelona in 2016. More immediately, however, I would love to be on one programme item. It is about Alucinadas, the first ever women-only science fiction anthology in Spanish. Many of the contributors come from Latin America, including Angélica Gorodischer. You can read more about the project (in English) on the very fine Sense of Wonder blog. There is also a brief note (in Spanish) on Amazing Stories. (And kudos to Steve for having a whole Spanish language section these days.)

  1. We hope, if we get the conrep in time, to have a report from this convention included in our Spring edition to go up mid January on http://www.concatenation.org.

    We also hope that this convention will generate news of the forthcoming 2016 Eurocon also in Barcelona. The previous news so far is promising
