Tampere is one active sf city during the following week. Tomorrow the Kaleva subsection of the Finnish sf writers’ association will organize KingCon II: a minicon themed “imaginary kings and possible monarchies”. There will be a presentation, “The weird sovereigns of pervy fantasy,” followed by discussion about what makes the royalties in fantasy and science fiction interesting as rulers. STk Kaleva, c/o Henriksson & Soikkeli, Teiskontie 19 E 82, Saturday Nov 24 at 6 PM.
