We are now only days away from LAFFCON3!
Will you be joining us? Registration is still open.
We have freshly printed and lavishly illustrated program booklets, free for all who attend, and all new one-of-a-kind Lafferty swag.
is producing a documentary on the life and work of author R.A. Lafferty.
At LAFFCON this year he will screen 30 minutes of footage, which includes interviews with Harlan
Ellison, Michael Swanwick, Andrew Ferguson, and Gregorio Montejo.
We're very excited.
Andrew last joined us at LAFFCON1 where he screened a much shorter teaser reel and left us all begging for more.

4p-4:45p National Kick-a-Pigeon Day Celebration
The LaffCon Planning Committee would like to apologize for neglecting this important holiday the past two years. We plan to make up for it this year with strenuous pigeon-kicking. This is the unwinding part of the con, an informal panel involving everyone at the con. If you have anything to say about Lafferty, say it here. If you want to read some Lafferty, read it now.
Registration is now open for LAFFCON3, taking place June 9, 2018 in Lawrenceville, NJ.
Registration for Laffcon is encouraged but not a necessity. We will turn away no one at the door (doors open at 10:00 A.M.).
That said, a rough
count of those planning to attend will help provide a better conference
experience by helping us plan amenities like refreshments and Lafferty
swag ("Is there such a thing as Lafferty swag?" you ask. We're certainly
working on it.)
