About the programme

We expect to be able present a more or less finished version of this year’s programme in early April. Like Fantasticon 2008-2010, it will be mulitiple-track, multiple-language (English and Danish), multiple-media (books, films, games and art) and multiple-genre (science fiction, fantasy, horror).
A little preview of what we are planning: Anne-Marie Vesø Olesen talks about her new book “Glasborgen”, a panel on some of the recent major science fiction prize winning novels, talks about H.P. Lovecraft and Jules Verne, monster design and computer games, Science Cafe Friday and Saturday and of course a lot of program items with our Guests of Honour, the master composer of new space opera Alastair Reynolds and one of the world’s best editors of horror, fantasy and science fiction Ellen Datlow.
The programme book will be a real book (in Danish) and feature several short stories, including a translated Alastair Reynolds story, articles and more. The print run might be limited, so if you want a copy, please use the membership form to preorder your copy.
