It all started with a phone call from a fan in New York way back in 1984. Then it took three years of bidding to win the race in Brighton in 1987. Another three long years to make ConFiction1990 a fact in The Hague, the second World Science Fiction Convention on the continent of Europe.
We have created this website and social media avenues to preserve the past for the future and… to promote our intended Reunicon 2020 to commemorate 30 years after ConFiction 1990. Not only attendees and supporters from the original convention are welcome, but all science fiction & fantasy fans from all over the world are welcome. And who knows, your visit might ignite a spark in your local fandom and before you know it, you are organising the next Worldcon yourself!
We look forward hearing from you or seeing you in 2020 in The Hague and till then, enjoy the memories we wish to like and follow or share with you all ConFiction1990.
We are very pleased to be able to announce that Joe Haldeman, one of the original Guests of Honour at ConFiction in 1990, will come to The Hague with his wife Gay Haldeman. Both Joe and Gay have fond memories of the convention in 1990 and will undoubtedly have stories to tell about their visit then as well as their lives in Fandom.
As we all know, one of Joe’s most famous books is The Forever War – which has been adapted also into a fantastic comic book by the Belgian artist Marvano, who will also be at Reunicon 2020.
We look very much forward to this and hope all of you will enjoy their company as much as we have over the past 30 years!
