Hello fellow Miss Fisher fans! It’s been a busy couple of months here in the clubhouse, and we’ve got a lot going on, so let me just jump right in!
Selecting a location for the 2019 Miss Fisher Con
At the members’ meeting we held at Miss Fisher Con, the Adventuresses’ Club of the Americas members voted on the general region for the con. We sent out absentee ballots for those who couldn’t be with us in person, and then sent ballots out again to break a tie! After all of that, we’re pleased to announce that the 2019 Miss Fisher Con will be held in the western United States, an area that encompasses 11 states - east to west, we have Colorado to Hawaii; north to south, it’s Alaska to California. And 8 of those states have international airports:
Our region map was voted on by the 2018 members at Miss Fisher Con. It took some doing, but the choice was Region 1!
The airport situation is just one of our pretty stringent criteria for cities that will host Miss Fisher Con, and we want to hear from you! Do you think that your city (or your favorite city within this region) has what it takes? Any Adventuresses’ Club member is eligible to submit a proposal, but we need to have all proposals submitted by the end of August so that we can get a hotel booked ASAP! (Bet you didn’t realize that con planning starts nearly a full year before the con, did you?) Not yet a member? Join today!
Timing-wise, we don’t have exact dates yet, partly because they’ll depend on when the hotel we choose is available. Based on the voting at the members’ meeting, though, Miss Fisher Con 2019 will be held next summer, between June 15 and August 15, and we’ll avoid major summer holidays. We’ll let you know specifics as we get them!
New Miss Fisher stories are coming!
As most of you know, the full-length movie Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears is slated to begin production in October, and I cannot wait to see more of Miss Fisher, Detective Inspector Robinson, Dorothy Collins, and whichever other cast members are included. Director Tony Tilse worked on many of the series episodes, and his artistic vision for this show is unparalleled.
And, as if that wasn’t gift enough, Every Cloud Productions announced in a press release that they are also planning to begin work on a new series, Ms. Fisher’s MODern Murder Mysteries!
In the new series, which will be set in the 1960s, Ms. Peregrine Fisher learns that her famous aunt has gone missing while on a transoceanic flight. This will be an extension of the stories we love, and I’m excited to see what Ms. Peregrine Fisher will bring to Phryne’s world!

Are you thinking about membership?
Want to get more information from the Adventuresses’ Club of the Americas? Become a member! Members get access to exclusive content, a say in the locations of future cons, the first announcements of any news we receive, early and discounted registration for Miss Fisher Con, and much more!
For example, Deb Cox and Fiona Eagger created a Q&A video for the con - we’ve made the full video available to our members, and we’ve posted a teaser on our home page - check it out! Photos from the con are also available to members, including access to those taken by our amazing on-site photographer Perceptio Lucis. We’ve made a subset available to the public, but there are so many more, including a way for con attendees to share their personal photos. We’ve created a Slack workspace with a whole host of chat channels just for ACotA members too. Chatting on Slack gives folks a chance to talk about the show, the con, and their hobbies around both - it's also an opportunity to make some friends. We’d love to see you there!
In case you’re on the fence, we’re currently signing people up as 2019 memberships - the 2018 term ends on October 31, 2018, but sign up now and your end date leaps to 2019. That’s 2 months free!
With these Adventuresses in charge, the coming year is gonna be a lot of fun!
Whew, I told you it was a lot this month! Until next time, hope to catch you on social media for all the Miss Fisher and Ms. Fisher buzz!
