Off to Swecon

That’s it for this week—at least when work is concerned. I—along with quite a few others—am off to Swecon. The ferry leaves tonight.

The last couple of years, the Swecon delegation from Finland has been pretty much Ben, Jukka & me (Ben and Jukka were there before that, too). We’ve had fun—and also told others here so. Maybe partly because of that, and no doubt because the Swedes came to Finncon in force this year and had a visible Swecon presence, there are now thirteen Finns going to Imagicon. That’s right, count them, thirteen! That’s quite a leap from three. The Nordic fandom is coming together, and I’m very excited about that.

See you in Stockholm!

At http://swecon.fandom.se you can find more information on the modern Swecons. As you can read on the page the Swecons of today (since 1998) are different5 than thea earlier Swecons in that the modern Swecons are the official national sf-con of the year in Sweden, whereas the earlier Swecons just were cons that happened to be called Swecons.

Anyway it was great that we were so many travelling to Swecon this year! Great con and a great con-trip!
