Corflu

(Did you mean the Sacred Liquid?)

An annual gathering of fanzine fans, founded by Lucy Huntzinger, Allyn Cadogan and Shay Barsabe in 1984. It is usually in the spring. The con's location is decided via a bid process.

While there is a program, relaxed conversation is the main attraction. Things are not taken seriously, for example, the guest of honour's name is drawn from a hat. The annual FAAN Awards are presented at Corflu.

See the Corflu history page by Tracy Benton for more history and facts about each Corflu.
