Novacon 50 News

Dealers at Novacon

We have decided this year to offer a special membership rate for Dealers of £25. This is for one person per booking and tables remain at £20 each.

Porcupine Books

Although Porcupine Books won’t have a table at the convention Brian Ameringen has said that if anyone orders from his website he will bring their order with him, thereby saving the customer hundreds of pounds in postage.

UK Film Premier

Novacon 50 will be screening "The Stooge", a film based on a story by Christopher Priest.

Chris Priest says, "It is an essay on stage magic and was for me when I wrote the original short story a kind of ironic commentary on and footnote to "The Prestige".

Since its release "The Stooge" has been shown at various film festivals around the world to great acclaim and has won many awards. We look forward to showing it to a new audience.

Membership Numbers

We are pleased to be able to say that the membership number for Novacon 50 is increasing nicely. It’s possible that this could be the first major in-person convention for a long time, and so we could face a last-minute flood of members! Although the Palace hotel is bigger and roomier than the Nottingham Mercure, we may have to limit the number of attendees. We will be monitoring the situation and will make a decision in due course.
