64th World Science Fiction Convention

L.A.con IV
Anaheim Convention Center
Anaheim, California, USA
Wednesday August 23rd thru Sunday August 27th, 2006
What is a Worldcon?

The World Science Fiction Convention (or Worldcon) is a lot more than just what the name suggests. The Worldcon is the gathering of thousands of people with a shared interest in things fantastic. Movies. Books. Science. Space. Television. Games. Costumes. Art. Anime. More... Much More!

Over the five jam-packed days and nights of the Worldcon, there will be over 600 program items, filled with information, fun, behind-the-scenes stories, and free-wheeling exchanges between the speakers and the audience.

Past Worldcons have included some of the top selling authors of science fiction, fantasy, and horror fiction including Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Marion Zimmer Bradley and Poul Anderson.

This year will be no different. Already confirmed guests include authors Connie Willis, Anne McCaffrey, Harlan Ellison, Larry Niven, Robert Silverberg, James Gurney, Harry Turtledove, George RR Martin and Greg Benford; comic book greats Marv Wolfman, Len Wein, and Bernie Wrightson; and filmmakers such as Battlestar Galactica's executive producer Ron Moore, The Shining director Mick Garris, Galaxy Quest writer Robert Gordon, actor Walter Koenig; and lots more.

The list keep growing as we get closer and closer to the convention.
What else?

Actors - Directors - Writers - Producers of Top Television Series and Movies - Previews of Movies Soon To Appear - Plays, Sketches and A Full Stage Production - NASA Exhibits - JPL Speakers - Video And Computer Game Companies - Sponsored Tournaments - Demonstrations of New Games - A Costume Competition - Classic Rockets, Rayguns and Robots Exhibit - The Hugo Awards - The Oscars of The Science Fiction Field - Anime Companies - Premieres of All Sorts - Hundreds Of Dealers - 20,000 Sq. Ft. Art Show With Amateur And Professional Artwork - Movies - New And Classic Television Episodes - Dances - Writer's Workshops - Gaming - Autographing - Authors Readings - And Much More!

The list is endless. If you have any interest in the world of the fantastic, you'll find plenty to do at the World Science Fiction Convention. You can come for one day or all of it but, trust us, five days won't seem like enough.

Hey Scott, that was a copy and paste job, huh? Hahaha.

Seriously, though, I've never heard of it before, and it's at it's 64th convention? Damn. It doesn't pay to live in Kansas.

Is this convention supposed to be the end-all con? I wonder how it fares against Dragon Con.

I have only been to one in my life and it was the most remarkable convention I had ever been to for after hours parties. The daytime activities were so widely diverse that it differs greatly from DC and from SDCC, but it is definetly an event not to be missed if you are a convention rat like me.
