By popular demand, WhiskyCon is back, bigger and better than ever. An opportunity for readers, writers, geeks, and nerds to mingle and talk late into the night at Verity Bar in the city. Open to one and all. 6pm (following Kaaron Warren’s book launch) until late.

However, for those with a taste for malt, we will also have a whisky tasting, hosted by Guest of Honour Rob Hood. For 70 dollars, you’ll get six half-shots of whisky, followed by array of delicious hot snacks. You also get the company of Rob Hood, and six or so whisky-minded others. Starts at 6pm. If you wish to join the tasting, please contact Conflux via, as numbers are limited.

Join monster-creators Professors Robert Hood and Kaaron Warren as they reveal their experiences with the Monster and his legacy of horrors, share your own thoughts and experiences, and salute the Terror. Hopefully the Creature will join us! As food and drink will be provided, an entrance fee is required. Book through the membership process or if already a member, emailing
