While the World Science Fiction Convention is primarily a literary convention, they believe that the World Science Fiction Convention should include fans from all over the world and from all the worlds of fandom. Whether your interest is primarily literature, science, anime, fanzines, media, costuming, filking, gaming, socializing etc., they feel you should be part of this convention and this convention should have something to offer you and your friends.
