From the Chairs

Thank you for entrusting us with the task of delivering a NASFiC to remember, the first hosted outside of the U.S. We are proud to welcome you to Canada’s heart: Winnipeg. Science Fiction has always been a mosaic of styles and types: alternate history, mystery, future worlds, apocalyptic, fantastic, military… and Canada has always been a mosaic of peoples from many parts of the globe. Pemmi-Con hopes to show you the mosaic that is First Nations, Metis and Canadian Science Fiction. And, maybe, just maybe, we could do a programme on making pemmican: dried meat which would be traditionally bison but could be moose, caribou, deer and even beef, pounded and then mixed with an equal amount of melted fat, and various berries; how to keep your hunger at bay when on the hunt for new things.

— Robbie Bourget & Linda Ross-Mansfield, Co-Chairs

Pemmi-Con will be focusing on written science fiction and fantasy, but there will be lots of other interesting programming — including a costume competition, a dealers room and art show, free pinball, and lectures by a world-class paleontologist who is the co-founder of the Royal Tyrrell Museum!
