What’s a General Science Fiction Convention? A gathering of science fiction and fantasy fans of all genre and media, put on by fans for fans. We think Westercon should be awesome! And with you there, sharing your love of books, tv/movies/anime, costuming/cosplay, gaming, furry… whatever your love is — it will be!
