I’ve just heard that the national science fiction convention, being hosted by the annual Swancon convention in Perth April 25-27, has cancelled for this year.
It’s a preemptive strike against the coronavirus outbreak and, while it’s the first literary event to be cancelled due to that threat, it possibly won’t be the last. I’ll do my best to keep abreast of it for the 2020 literary event calendar, but feel free to let me know of any you hear of (or any events I’ve not got listed!).
Swancon is offering to carry the tickets for this year on to next year, or a refund. See the website for more.
