Welcome to Helicon 2

This is the web site of Helicon 2, the 2002 British National Science Fiction Convention to be held at the Hotel de France, St. Helier, Jersey from 29 March to 1 April, 2002. Here you can find information about the convention, about the island of Jersey, and about why this web site has a pronounced chocolatey feel to it.

Our Guests of Honour for Helicon 2 are:

Harry Turtledove - Brian Stableford - Peter Weston

Well, it is all over for another year. For those of you who didn't manage to make it to Jersey, we have posted various pubications available at the con. To see them click here.
