Newcon 5: SF convention
Newcon 5 is Northampton's Science Fiction and Fantasy literary convention. The event was established by the Northampton Science Fiction Wiriting group in 2004, from when it's gone from strength to strength and has attracted guests such as Iain M. Banks, Ken Macleod, Paul Cornell, Storm Constantine and many more.
The 2010 convention is scheduled for the weekend 9-10 October -- in Northampton, obviously. The guests of honour are Paul McAuley, Pat Cadigan and Paul Cornell.
