In fact already on the Con debut last year I was quite surprised that unlike of many other similar events, the percentage of science-fiction fans was quite high. 2013 will be certainly even better for „us SF-nerds“, as it will also be SFCD-Con. (The SFCD is Germany´s largest SF club)
But before 2013, let us enjoy MucCon 2012!
Pre-meeting 16.11.2012, 18:00 in the restaurant „die Trattoria »Olive«“, Oertelplatz 1, 80999 Munich
Convention from 17.-18.11. 2012, starting at the time of 10:00 a.m.
Venue: Kulturzentrum Trudering, Wasserburger Landstraße 32, 81825 Munich
The con ticket costs 15 Euro for both days, attending just for a day and paying less is possible. Joining the pre-meeting held on the evening before the con in a restaurant is free (You just pay what you order). Please check out the webpage for ticket prices as you might even be able to get a reduction (e.g. as a student or a retired person).
The program consists mostly of readings, but also speeches and workshops are offered. (Click here for the whole program.) My recommendations for SF-fans are the speech by Dr. Jürgen R. Lautner on steampunk in the year 2012 and the speech organised by the SFCD on masterpieces of science-fiction. And: You can even buy a lector! – Yes, that is not a joke, there is an auction to raise funds for the MucCon 2013!
And of course there are fair stands all day long to shop books and zines, but also crafts.
Please note that panels are usually held in German language. But I am quite sure you are also most welcome also just for socializing among fans – so come and have a chat with them over a glass of Munich´s world famous beer!
