The World Fantasy Convention

Just yesterday I finally made the decision to attend the World Fantasy Convention in Columbus, Ohio, this year.  The plan is to arrive on Friday and leave early Sunday so I can get back in time to trick-or-treat with my kids. I have two events scheduled for the show:

Friday, October 29, 8 PM: Mass autograph signing. Come chat with me in between getting autographs from the giants in the industry!

Saturday, October 30, 3:30 PM: Author reading. I’ll have something from Amortals to share.

Beyond all that, I’ll be wandering around the show, having meetings with editors and agents, catching up with old friends, and making new ones. It’s bound to be a bit of a strange show for me, and not just because I don’t normally make it to the World Fantasy Conventions. The show travels about, and this year it’s in the Hyatt Regency in Columbus, the main hotel for the Origins Game Fair, to which I’ve been countless times. I fully expect a feeling of vuja dé to set in about halfway through the show, probably while I’m chatting with someone at the Big Bar on 2.

I hope to see you there!

  1. Hi Matt – caught your post as I’m on the WFC Con Comm this year…I don’t see your name on the membership list though, have you purchased it under another name? The con is sold out and no memberships to be had save through transfer…we are not selling them at the door.

    1. Hi Rina! I made the decision to attend the show after the girlfriend of a pal of mine had to bow out. She kindly transferred her membership to me late last week. It should have gone through by now. I worked with Darrel Schweitzer to get added to the programming at the last second, and Joni Brill Dashoff and Larry Smith helped out with the transfer.

      Thanks for checking about it though. I’d hate to show up and not be able to get in. See you at the show!
