Guests of Honor

To be announced soon!


The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, have long had an active community of science fiction fans, including the Rivendell discussion group of the Mythopoeic Society. Twin Cities fandom has supplied the SF/F field with many professional writers, from Poul Anderson and Gordon R. “Gordy” Dickson, to Steven Brust and Naomi Kritzer. The Cities themselves have been the setting for novels such as Emma Bull’s War for the Oaks and Laramie Sasseville’s One of Me is Missing.

The Minneapolis/St. Paul area also hosts several annual SF/F conventions, from the small Diversicon to the long-running traditional Minicon, to the huge Convergence. Minnesotans know how to put on conventions and have fun!

Hotel / Conference Venue

We are currently negotiating with at least two possible venues, any of which would be wonderfully suited for hosting a Mythcon. Watch this space for a final decision.
