Update: World Fantasy Convention 2011

February 17, 2011

'This year's World Fantasy Convention will be held on 27-30 October at the Town and Country Resort & Conference Centre in San Diego. Due to the unprecedented rate of registration for the con, we are more than half way to our firm attendee cap of 850 and are likely to be sold out long before the convention commences. As the convention is aimed at the professionals in our field, we are sending out this 'heads up' so that anyone who wishes to attend can register early and be assured of a place at this unique event. For additional information about the con, please go to the WFC website.'

The Guests of Honour are Jo Fletcher, Neil Gaiman, Parke Godwin, Shawna McCarthy and Ruth Sanderson. The Toastmaster is Connie Willis.
