"I enjoyed Capclave tremendously. They asked me what I wanted to do,
listened and then let me do it. And people were very friendly. A great time."
--Kim Stanley Robinson
Capclave is a small relaxed literary convention with a program that usually
focuses on the short fiction form. Our Guests of Honor and other notable
authors, editors, artists, and fans of the short fiction form will explore
the creation and enjoyment of short fantasy and science fiction genre
Past Capclaves have hosted discussions with authors and fans; readings
by authors; a dealer's room with books, magazines, artwork, crafts, and
other science fiction and fantasy related items; exhibits by artists;
space science presentations from NASA; a hospitality suite; room parties;
interesting conversations with other fans and professionals; and a relaxed
atmosphere for visiting old friends and meeting new friends.
"Had I but cash enough, and time, I wouldn't be coy about getting to Capclave
every year. It's a quiet, friendly, fun convention."
