Third October Convention Folds

Calgary’s long-running annual sf event Con-Version has been cancelled for 2011 and 2012 reports Robert J. Sawyer.

Two other convention cancellations in the past week led to wider circulation of this news — which actually was announced first, on Facebook, September 18.

Calgary still is home to several sf cons — including Otafest, an anime con, and a new literary convention When Words Collide.
