Background

MileHiCon has been run and staffed entirely by volunteers since its inception in 1969. Its purpose is to promote interest in reading and writing science fiction and related genres, although it has long since branched out to embrace science and technology, television, film, anime, gaming, costuming/cosplay and other areas of fannish interest.
