A small convention organized by OUSFG, including John Bray, Maria Hamilton and Ivan Towlson. It was held in the Oxford Polytechnic 5-7 August 1988. GoHs were Terry Pratchett and Dave Lally. The script of the musical Fundament!, very loosely based on the Foundation Trilogy, performed there is available on the OUSFG web site (IA)

It was originally intended to be a bid for the ninth Unicon, hence the name, but no actual bid was made, so Wincon was the Unicon that year.

A followup, Spawn of Conine, was planned but folded due to lack of support.
