What is the North American Science Fiction Convention?
Detcon1 is the 2014 North American Science Fiction Convention (or NASFiC). NASFiCs are held in years when the Worldcon is held outside of North America. In 2014 London, England will be the site of the Worldcon, while the NASFiC will be held in Detroit, Michigan. This will be the 11th NASFiC since it was founded in the 1970′s, but each NASFiC is organized by a different committee and in a different location.
Explore the website to find everything you need to know about the convention, and check back frequently as we add new information.
