Mythcon (UK) 1982

Mythcon 1982 was held in Birmingham, UK on July 2-4, 1982. Tanith Lee amd Eddie Jones were GoHs.

This convention started out as a Fantasycon — it would have been Fantasycon VIII — but, as the BFS history says,

However it was soon apparent that serious financial disagreements existed between the BFS and Fantasycon committees. In the March issue of The Bulletin it was announced that Fantasycon VIII was no longer a BFS sponsored event. This decision could have seriously debilitated the BFS financially, and for a time during the early months of 1982 the future of conventions was an open question. It was resolved however and the BFS was able to pull out of the event (finally called Mythcon) in all respects, including its funding.
