Con-Version 25, this year’s edition of Calgary’s annual science-fiction and fantasy convention, is fast approaching. Dates are August 21-23. Here’s the description of the con from the website:

Con-Version is a three-day festival devoted to science fiction, fantasy, and everything in between. Whether you love the groundbreaking sword and sorcery of Terry Brooks, the sexy, modern-day vampire stories of Tanya Huff, or the intellectual, thought-provoking science fiction of Robert J. Sawyer, Con-Version has something for you.

If you’re a fan of anything from Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate, or even Battlestar Galactica — either one! — you’ll find people with the same interests (and maybe the same Stormtrooper costume).

Whether you like the Harry Potter books or just the movies, like Lord of the Rings on screen but not on paper, whether you’re a literary or a media fan, Con-Version is the can’t-miss event of the year!

Regular programming hours are full of demonstrations of medieval swordfighting, discussion panels on your favourite books, gatherings of costumers to share their secrets, and much more. The evenings are packed with entertainment: the dance, variety show, a concert, and Con-Version’s famous fundraising “Slave Auction.”

Join us on our Facebook group and let us know if you have any thoughts, questions, or suggestions.

We look forward to seeing you there!
