Nine Worlds Convention (London UK) Aug9-11 2013

What is it? NineWorlds is a weekend-long, multi-genre GeekFest to be held in London on August 9th-11th, a "mutant hybrid of a science fiction convention crossed with a TED talks conference".


Event and activity streams include: Film Festival, Board Gaming, Social gaming, Video Games Culture, Indie Comics, Creative writing, Costuming, Maker, Geek Feminism, Sci-Fi and Fantasy Literature, Star Trek, Discworld, Whedon, Tolkien Fandom, Occult and Paranormal, Skeptic, Star Wars, Doctor Who & Torchwood, Science, SF & F Academia, Queer Fandom, Steampunk, Fanfic, Harry Potter fandom, Role Play Gaming, Collectible card gaming, Open culture, Game of Thrones.

Guests include: Paul Cornell, Ben Aaronovitch, Marion Gibson, Edmund Weiner, Tricia Sullivan, Jaine Fenn, Cory Doctorow, Stephen Hunt, Anne Gay, Stan Nicholls, Roz Kaveney, Kate Madison, Kim Newman.

They're currently selling advance tickets for a reduced price via Kickstarter, so why not go and throw a few dollars their way?

Some links:

 

All proceeds from the Nine Worlds convention will go to their charity partner English PEN, a charity that supports persecuted writers around the world and is the UK's oldest human rights organisation. None of the Nine Worlds organising team are being paid for their work.

The boardgames section is being run by London on Board, and I'll try to get Sentinels in on the list of games, obviously.
