The Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society (LASFS), the world’s oldest continuously active science fiction and fantasy club (founded Oct. 27, 1934), presents the 46th Loscon — Los Angeles’ longest running fan convention — over Thanksgivingweekend (November 29 – December 1). This family-friendly gathering includes a variety of panels, discussions, activities, a film festival, an art show, and shopping. Diverse participants include area authors, such as Steven Barnes, Harry Turtledove, and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff.
Loscon 46 welcomes Professional Writer Guest of Honor, Nebula and World Fantasy Award-winning writer Howard Waldrop (The Ugly Chickens, Night of the Cooters), whose extensive work in short fiction combines a variety of elements — alternate history, classical mythology, and rock and roll; Fan Guest of Honor, Edie Stern, retired engineer with multiple patents and a fan active in her local science fiction community and around the world since 1970; Moshe Feder , a Tor Books Senior Editor, as its Editor Guest of Honor.
First held in 1975 at the International Hotel (now the Hyatt Regency), Loscon is hosted down the street at the recently redesigned Los Angeles Airport Marriott, located on Century Boulevard near Los Angeles International Airport. Day/weekend memberships and room reservations are available at discounted rates before the convention.
