A large selection of of David Langford’s finest and funniest (and in a few cases most esoteric) reports on science fiction and fantasy conventions. The 79,000 words of reportage or misreportage cover British and occasionally North American or (once) Australian SF conventions, from Mancon 5 (the infamous 1976 Eastercon in Manchester) to Loncon 3 (the 2014 World SF Convention in London Docklands). There are thirty-two articles in all - chiefly from fanzines but a few professionally published by unwary editors - which between them tackle thirty-five conventions plus a few bonus events such as a very strange launch party held underground in the Chislehurst Caves. By way of bookends to the collection the management has also included a brief introduction and an index of coverage by convention name. 3
