WorldCon 2020

Hey!!!! Its that time of the year again when we look forward to seeing old friends, making new ones, finding new books to love, revisiting old favourites, listen to talks, learn from each other and generally celebrate life and times in the sci fi community! ITS WORLDCON!!!!

2020 of course, is challenging us all to think, live and love in different ways and CoNZealand – The 78th World Science Fiction Convention is no exception. The entire volunteer team organizing the 2020 event are to be congratulated on their spectacular effort turning the con on its head and creating the very first Virtual WorldCon. Long may it live in cyberspace! Well done team! Stellar effort!

Many Shooting Star Press authors and fans are attending and participating in CoNZealand and we wish them all a very happy Con. While we can’t be with you we are celebrating and keeping an eye on proceedings when and where we can.

In celebration of Dr Gillian Polack‘s new release Poison & Light, which she will be talking about at the Con, we are happy to offer you a WorldCon2020 special – a chap book containing some behind the scenes anecdotes from all of Gillian about her books, and a rare treat, a selection of recipes taken from the cuisines featured in each novel . . . happy ConNZealand and happy cooking!
