I’ll be at MIRcon this weekend, Spain’s 31st national science fiction, fantasy, and horror convention, also called HispaCon. It’s being held this year in Montcada i Reixac, a suburb of Barcelona.

Activities will include panels, conferences, an awards dinner, children’s activities, a Catalan-language track, exhibits, sales stands, signings, meetings, a zombie walk, a Night’s Watch Oath, and videos. Guests of honor are Nina Allan, Aliette de Bodard, Christopher Priest, Karin Tidbeck, Carlos Sisi, and Félix J. Palma. A lot of other Spanish authors will be there, too.

I’ll be on a panel with Mariano Villareal at 10:30 a.m. Monday presenting Castles in Spain / Castillos en el aire. We’ll hold a Kickstarter campaign starting in January to get this “best of” Spanish anthology translated into English. (You’ll hear a lot more about this.)

If you happen to be in Barcelona, you’re welcome to drop in. Events are free and open to the public. We’ll have fun.

It sounds so wonderful. I've never been to Spain....

If you make it to Madrid, my house is your base camp.

I'll be publishing a report on the convention for Concatenation. I'll post a link in my blog when it's out.
