What is Anticipation?

The 2009 World Science Fiction Convention gathered thousands of people from around the world for five days of activities and events.  In addition to our All-Star guests, we had more than six hundred authors, artists, and creators spending five fabulous days with the fans they love. We had panels, workshops, exhibits, events, and activities to delight fans of science fiction and fantasy. The Worldcon is a convention for fans, and it’s run by fans.
