The best thing about Eurocon happening after Worldcon is the fact that you can have a convention marathon, but at the same time this is the worst thing as marathons in general are exhausting. This years’ Eurocon took place one week after and around 170 km north from Dublin 2019 Worldcon and it had both the advantages and disadvantages of happening just after Worldcon.
A few years ago, I somehow learned about The Enchanted Duplicator. I found this book of extreme relevance even to nowadays fandom and I really enjoyed reading it. Knowing this, it may be no surprise for you to hear that when Geri Sullivan, the TAFF delegate, announced a trip backtracking the history of Irish Fandom (or parts of it), I had to participate in it. The tour took place on Thursday just before the Eurocon TitanCon (in fact, we had to miss first hours of the con).
In my previous post I covered some topics about Dublin 2019 An Irish Worldcon. Today, I am going to write more about Events, Hugos and Fan Funds. I already miss this convention and would like to come back to Dublin.
I love Worldcons. I have only been to three of them, but I have fallen in love with the very first one. With each Worldcon I attended I was more and more involved in them. In Dublin, I have not only been a gopher and not only helped in promotions, but I also had a chance to work in the Programme team. I cannot be fully objective when writing about this convention, but I will do my best to describe Dublin 2019 An Irish Worldcon as good as I can.
