    I eventually will need to post some FAQ about Anticipation in here. for now:

    What is a Worldcon?

    A ?Worldcon? is an annual convention of the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS). The convention is held near the end of the summer in a different location each year. The members of the WSFS choose the location of future Worldcons by ballot.

    Two main events are the Masquerade and the Hugo Awards, but Worldcons also have panel talks and presentations, movies, exhibits, art shows, and dealers selling merchandise and publications. While some events are open to the public, most require a membership in the convention. Offering memberships is the convention?s primary way of paying for convention space and other costs.

    Worldcons have been held every year since 1939 (with a few years off for World War II). Visit the WSFS website for Worldcon history as well as links to previous and future Worldcons.
