Marburg-Con in Marburg (Germany), 27th to 29th of April 2018

From the 27th to the 29th of April 2018 the Marburg-Con is going to happen in … well, in Marburg. What is obviously not the biggest surprise on earth considering the name of the event.

The city of Marburg is in Germany. Just in case you are interested in this convention on fantasy, horror and science-fiction literature, make sure you´re going to go to Marburg by the river Lahn! (As there is another Marburg by the river Drau.)

Friday is actually not a convention day, but a pre-meeting in a restaurant.
The program will include speeches and readings, as well as the awarding ceremonies for the Marburg Award (a writing competition for stories on speculative fiction on a certain topic, this year it is “A Fatal Error”) as well as the Vincent Preis, a horror award in different categories for works available for the public within year.
