The World Fantasy Convention, which moves about to different exotic destinations each year, will be in Columbus, Ohio on the weekend of October 28-31, 2010. It looks like it’s being chaired by a local bookdealer (fitting!).
The Hyatt Regency in downtown Columbus is a pretty good-sized convention hotel, conveniently situated near highways and food, and about three-four blocks away from St. Patrick’s. The World Fantasy Convention is also a lot smaller and more convenient than the World Science Fiction Convention for meeting your favorite writers. So it’s probably going to be a really good deal.
