For those planning ahead, I’m pleased to announce what I believe is Con or Bust’s first donation from a Southern Hemisphere con: Au Contraire 2016, 3-5 June, 2016, Wellington, New Zealand. Au Contraire is the 37th National Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention for New Zealand (NatCon for short). Its Guests include Stephanie Paul (Iron Sky), Martin Wallace (Treefrog Games), and A.J. Fitzwater.


Au Contraire has donated one membership to Con or Bust. Fans of color/non-white fans can request it during the next request assistance period, August 15-25; see the Request Assistance page for more information.


And for the other memberships to be available in August, and lots available right this minute, check out the Upcoming Cons page. Thanks, and please spread the word!
