The British are coming! The British are coming! The British are coming to Minnesota!
Brit Con is the only three day event of its kind dedicated to celebrate BRITISH Science-Fiction, Fantasy & Folklore in
Movies, Media & Literature
exclusively! It's held near Minneapolis, MN (not in the UK!) by a clever bunch of Yanks who are active

We'll have presentations & panel discussions
on a broad range of SF&F topics in British media and literature,
complemented by a
video room screening the rarely-seen and fondly-remembered. A masquerade,
vendor room and those ubiquitous parties round out the things you
can enjoy at Brit Con. Plus a few surprises...
Our interests range from Hammer Horror to Harry Potter

Primeval to The Prisoner;
J.R.R. Tolkien and

Classic (King Arthur from mythology to Monty Python,
and Robin Hood) to Contemporary
(the spy-fi of James Bond and Harry Palmer in f

with Danger Man & Danger Mouse for good
measure along with the many incarnations of Sherlock Holmes
and, of course, Dr. Who) and so much more from "across
YOU'LL BE GOBSMACKED BY THE JOLLY GOOD TIME YOU'LL HAVE!
