|11||Jan Jelle Koerts||22|
Most people knew:
- That Clive Barker’s ‘Abarat’ was not made into a movie
- what Kylo Ren’s scar looks like
- that Tom Bombadil wasn’t in the Lord of the Rings movies
what the abbreviation HSF stands for (luckily 😉)
But only 1 person knew that the spaceship from question 16 was from Lexx.
The questions about locations in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, the titles of short horror stories and the characters from The Expanse were also unknown to most.
The best answer to question 14 was ‘Thingy from The Expanse’.
About half of the participants should have taken a closer look at the posters for the Eurocon / the pennants that were distributed: it will take place in 2024, not 2023 😉
And did you know that…. If you simply guessed 123,456 on tie-breaker question 40, you would actually come quite close to the correct answer? The difference is only 13,775 words.
Curious about the rest of the answers? You can find them all in the attached file.
The first HSFCon is barely over, but we continue at full speed with the preparations for the second HSFCon.
We would like to make HSFCon 2023 even better. What do you expect from the next HSFCon? What can be done differently? What needs to be done differently? Which guests of honor and guests would you like to see (again)? Do you have suggestions for panels, lectures or workshops? Do you want to help / participate in the next HSFCon? Constructive criticism is, of course, also more than welcome.
We look forward to receiving your e-mail, via firstname.lastname@example.org.

HSFCon 2022 will take place at the Van der Valk Hotel in Sneek (NL) on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 May 2022. HSFCon is a convention for all fans of Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy.
It will be a weekend filled with panels, talks and presentations about anything that these genres have to offer us, along with a good dollop of science. Feast your eyes and empty your purse at the dealers’ stands, join the workshops and spend some time with fellow fans.
The Van der Valk Hotel in Sneek offers comfortable, affordable hotel rooms, ample function rooms for a wide range of activities and of course a cosy bar for all your deep conversations with friends both old and new.
Tickets are on sale on our website, but the online ticket portal will close tomorrow.
Join us after the first HSFCon day by watching the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 together.
The Eurovision song contest can be watched in the Bar / Brasserie of the hotel. This is open until 01.00 at the latest, provided there are still enough people.
