The WisCon Chronicles is a collage of essays, interviews, panel notes and transcripts, and short fiction documenting and celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of WisCon, the annual feminist science fiction literary festival held on Memorial Day Weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. The world's largest feminist science fiction convention, which many of the sf genre's luminaries attend, WisCon has become so popular that the ceiling limiting attendance to 1000 participants tops out months in advance. More than half those attending are women; and since the convention is openly feminist, women's issues dominate the programming. People attend to meet up with friends from other parts of the country (or the world) whom they?ve come to know online; they attend because the programming goes far beyond thefeminism 101? that is the most they can hope for from most other science fiction conventions. But above all they come to experience the kind of community they can?t get elsewhere.
