“Do extraterrestrial things have much of a sex life?”
On this day in 1957, ITN’s Lynne Reid Banks spoke to various creatures at the 15th World Science Fiction Convention, or Worldcon. Held in London, that year’s meet was dubbed “Loncon”. It was the first Worldcon to bring the global sci-fi community together outside the US.
Did you know that Worldcon continues to this day? Worldcon 2022 – the 80th World Science Fiction Convention – was held in Chicago.
