NASFiC 6 was held in conjunction with Dragon*Con 1995, July 13–16, 1995, in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Atlanta Hilton & Towers, Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, and Atlanta Civic Center.

Guests of Honor: George Alec Effinger (writer), Harlan Ellison (writer), Timothy Zahn (writer), Michael Whelan (artist), Bjo Trimble (fan). Chairman: Ed Kramer. Attendees: 14,312.

Since 1975, the World Science Fiction Society has held a North American Science Fiction Convention in years when Worldcon is outside North America; in this case, Intersection in Glasgow, Scotland.

Dragon*Con, a for-profit gate show, won in the badly handled 1995 NASFiC Site Selection at MagiCon, the 1992 Worldcon, largely due to mistaken identity — most voters assuming that the Atlanta NASFiC in '95 bidders were the same fans as the just-defeated Atlanta in '95 Worldcon bid instead of the completely separate Dragon*Con group.
