  • Conflux "Visions of Time" Natcon

    02/10/2021 - 04/10/2021  
    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.

    More information and memberships now available at the Conflux 2021 website <https://conflux.org.au>.
