The Eurocon 2016 was held in Barcelona between the 4th and 6th of November 2016 and the venue was the CCCB at Montalegre in Barcelona, Spain. There were many interesting guests of honour attending, among them Aliette de Bodard, Richard Morgan, Péter Michaleczky, Andrzej Sapkowski, Rhianna Pratchett as well as Brandon Sanderson and Albert Sánchez Piñol.
During the signature day at Gigamesh, the main panels were streamed live for everyone to see, and here we saw many of the guests of honour to talk and sign books and autographs. Among them were Brandon Sanderson, born 1975 in Nebraska, USA. This fantasy author is famous for his triology Mistborn among others. We also saw Richard Morgan, the fantasy and fiction author as well as novel writer featuring Marvel character Black Widow. He has also worked with games in the sci-fi genre.
The Eurocon Barcelona was a truly great event and there was also the George Orwell walking tour to be taken by the participants. 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. There was also another party that we didn´t attend on Friday and that was the party at the CCCB cafeteria with a presentation and readings from some amazing books. There was also a screening by Riot Uber Alles and Cisco Bellabestia and also a DJ playing some tunes. We heard that this was also a great party.
We are very much looking forward to the upcoming Eurocons so stay put for more info here at the blog. You can also find more new at the Science Fiction and Fact Concatenation. Over and out for now!
