Welcome to our
website! If youre already a member of Continuum 4 or have
attended one of our first three conventions, then youll have
some idea of what to expect from us in 2006. If not, you probably
have a whole bunch of questions, not the least of which may be
What is this Continuum thing anyway?
Continuum is an annual Melbourne speculative
fiction and pop culture convention celebrating creativity across
genre and media. From hard-edge science fiction to high-flown fantasy,
comic books to film noir, high culture to sub-culture
sink our teeth into it all!
This year our convention will commence
on Friday 4th August and conclude late on Sunday 6th August, 2006.
Continuum 4 aims to provide a wide range of traditional SF convention
activities as well some new ones, all complementing our theme,
Retrorama: the future was then. We are very pleased to have
Shaun Tan, Charles Stross and
Margo Lanagan as our Official
Guests for 2006, who will feature along with numerous other
speakers and panellists in a fabulous line up of panels, presentations
and special activities.

presentation youd like to see at Continuum 4? Even better,
