About this blog

Hello, I’m Marcin, but my fandom nickname is Alqua. I created this blog to write about conventions and fandom in different countries. I live in Poland, so you will probably find a lot of posts about Polish conventions here, but you can expect some information about European fandom, too, as I try to attend cons in other countries as well.

I attended my first convention in 2002. Since then, I’ve been to over 200 events. Initially, I focused more on manga and anime conventions, but as time went by, my focus shifted to SF&F. Today, it is SF&F conventions that are the main area of interest for me.

I would like to thank my friends who helped me with this blog: Issay, Magd, MidMad, Miranda, Mona, and Moston (in alphabetical order).
