Archipelacon is organizing an amazing fantasy and science fiction flea market for our guests. We are offering wonderful books, direct from fans to fans!
Clean your shelves, earn some money for essentials, and most importantly, put some great literature to circulation. We would like to get fantasy, scifi, horror and other type of speculative fiction. Even small batches will be happily received.
So the programme is almost finished but as we haven’t quite yet got our magical technical wizardy in place to deliver it to you in glorious guide form, we will instead present you yet another fine selection from the general programme!
Story-telling – The different ways we tell and take part in stories
– David Gullen, Karin Tidbeck, Mika Loponen & Sari Polvinen
Good story-telling is an immersive experience for the audience,
The con is approaching, and we’ll be closing the transfers of memberships soon. If you know you can’t attend the convention and have a membership you would like to transfer to someone else, please remember to let us know on Thursday, June 4 at the latest.
To keep the ball rolling, we would like to announce few more programme items you’ll have the pleasure to see in Archipelacon in just little under a month!
This is only a small preview what the general programme will offer: views to fandom and science fiction & fantasy in various countries, programme in both Swedish and Finnish, silly programming, workshops, comic books, movies, television and of course the rich world of speculative fiction literature.
We are still putting finishing touches on the overall programme but we are ready and happy to announce our academic programme track for the convention!
For those wondering how to approach the academic programme we have put together a handy Field Guide to Academics.
And those more looking more info on the content of the academic programme, we have the brief summaries or academic abstracts of the presented papers.

We would like to remind all our members who haven’t booked their travel yet that if you want to book the group travel with us, the last day you can do so is Sunday May 24 — in other words, tomorrow!

Conventions cannot work without volunteers! A small army of helpers who take care of all the small and great details during this long weekend are needed to keep everything running smoothly. If you volunteer you will not only help make Archipelacon a success, you will also get an opportunity to meet nice people from your own and other countries. You can help out as much or as little as you want, anything between 1–2 hours altogether and six hours a day.
Are you an author? Would you like to do a reading at the convention? Send us an email at email@example.com and let us know 1) what you’d like to read and 2) in what language (English, Finnish or Swedish).
