A review of Spain’s 2014 national SF convention

What’s a science fiction convention like in another country? In Spain, for example? I attended the 32nd Hispacon, known as MIRcon, in December 2014, and my review is up at Science Fiction & Science Fact Concatenation, a European SF e-zine.

You can read it here:

An excerpt: “One woman who had never attended a science fiction convention before was thrilled by the atmosphere. She could talk and laugh with her favourite authors, make new friends, pose with Stargate fans who had come in costume, and in general have a lot of fun – and she learned that this was the typical experience at a Hispacon. She promised to come back.”
