Worldcon 75

The 75th World Science Fiction Convention, 9-13 August 2017, Messukeskus, Helsinki, Finland

Also Appearing


In addition to our Guests of Honour, Toastmistress and Science Guest, Worldcon 75 will feature writers, artists, musicians, editors, publishers, critics, scientists, and fans with interests across the full spectrum of science fiction and fantasy.

The following are just some of the people who we expect to appear at Worldcon 75. This may include appearing on panels, holding signing sessions, participating in literary beers and Kaffeeklatsches, or taking part in Strolling with the Stars. We will publish more detailed information in the programme guide shortly before the convention. All of our programme items are covered by your membership: there is no additional charge for attending any programme item (with the exception of material costs in some workshops), although some items may have limited spaces available and require sign-up in advance of the item.

Please note that this list reflects our current expectation: names will be added and removed as people confirm their appearance, and as commitments change between now and the convention.
