The 20th Annual WorldCon is coming, Labor Day Weekend, 1962. Every year, attendees of this, the most prestigious science fiction convention, gather to choose the worthy creations of the prior year that will win the Hugo Award.



But if you can't make it to Chicago, don't worry. You still get to vote.

Galactic Journey is putting on its second live Tele-Conference via Visi-Phone for the purpose of gathering as many fellow travelers as possible together in one virtual place. Our mission – to select the best novels, stories, films, etc. of 1961. Maybe they'll make the official World Con ballot, maybe they won't. Who cares? It's what we like that matters. And if you're not completely up on all the works of last year, check out our Galactic Stars nominations for 1961.



In addition to Hugo talk, there will be the slew of entertaining discussions you've come to expect from the Journey: on world events, pop culture, the Space Race, and much more. Plus, we want to hear your questions for our special Stump the Traveler challenge. The best questioners will (once again) win a prize!

So don't miss out on the fun. To participate in the Tele-Conference, send in your RSVP to the box below, and you'll receive a ballot. Then sit tight, and on July 29, 1962 at 11am, tune in to the broadcast. As with last time, you will be able to chime in via tele-type, and, if you have the right equipment, you can even get invited on stage!

See you there!

Miracles are afoot at the Seattle World Expo. General Electric released its Visi-phone technology, allowing people from across the country to not only talk to each other, but to see each other as they do so.

Of course, money being no object, the cutting-edge Galactic Journey had to avail itself of this wonder immediately! The 21st Century...is now!
