Maps over Dieselverkstaden and its surroundings.
Fantastika 2013 is the national Swedish SF convention for 2013, Swecon 2013. It will take place in “Dieselverkstaden” (The Diesel Workshop) in Sickla, situated in Nacka very close to the center of Stockholm. The programming will be in Swedish and English, and almost always there will be some programme in English.
The convention starts on Friday October 18 at 5 p.m. and ends on Sunday October 20 at 5 p.m. But then there is the Dead Dog Party, starting at 6 p.m., at The Bishop’s Arms, Bellmansgatan 12.
Please let us know if you will bring any kids to the con. If so, we will arrange a Children’s Corner. We do not babysit children, so small children must be accompanied by grownups.
If you want to sell books at the con: Please contact tomas.cronholm at gmail.com for possible reservation at a table. On the Swedish site there was a list of authors and companies who sell books.
Thanks to everyone who was there! My impression is that all who participated in the programme items were engaged and interested, both those on stage and in the audience. 413 individuals visited the con (corrected Oct 27). Now we look forward to future cons, not least the Swecon next year, The Steampunk Festival in Gävle.
There is a list of convention reports in Swedish, Finnish and Spanish here. If you have written a report or know of one, please help us add to this list by sending an email with links, to tomas.cronholm at gmail.com or write them in the Facebook page for Fantastika 2013.
At many of the programme items authors and books were mentioned. Since these might have been difficult to catch we try to publish lists on the Swedish web site.
The programme can now be found here. Click the programme item for participants and summary. There may still be changes, so please check this link sometimes. The room is given in Swedish. The language of title and summary indicates the language of the item.
