    24/04/2021 - 26/04/2021  
    Duxton Hotel Perth, 1 St Georges Terrace, Perth WA 6000, Australia

    Swancon is WA's annual speculative fiction convention celebrating Science Fiction, fantasy, and other speculative fiction genres. We like to talk about books, TV and pop-culture. It is the longest continuously running science fiction convention in Australia. We also like to play quidditch, live action foosball and kitkat jenga!

    We chat, drink, discuss and party; we embrace the serious, the ridiculous and the far-fetched.

    Within the convention, we host a variety of entertainment, including panels, discussions, gaming, and social events.

    Canberra Rex Hotel, 150 Northbourne Ave, Braddon ACT 2612, Australia

    Conflux is Canberra’s annual speculative fiction convention for both established writers and artists and those seeking a foundation in the industry.

    As we adapt to the mad (Max) world that is our new formal, Conflux will spend three days over the weekend of October 2-4 2021 exploring the future of the speculative fiction industry.

    (Dr.) Who will be there you ask? This year’s guest of honour is John Birmingham, author of He Died with a Felafel in His Hand and the Axis of Time trilogy, and our International guest of honour is multi-award winning Helen Marshall, known for her psychological suspense, horror and the dark fantastic.

    Since Conflux 2021 is also the Australian National Science Fiction Convention it will include the Ditmar Award, which recognises achievement in Australian science fiction (including fantasy and horror) and science fiction fandom.
