Of course there was also a party at the Eurocon 16 and not only one party either! On Friday on the 4th of November, there was a party at Glups sponsored by the SuperSonic magazine. This was a great moment to meet and greet an have a few drinks with fans from all over the world and we want to thank SuperSonic for making this happen.
