We're two years out now, and we are busy planning the World Fantasy Convention for 2018.
We have a great venue, the Marriott Renaissance in downtown Baltimore, which is across the street from Harborplace, a major tourist attraction in Baltimore. The National Aquarium is a block away. And there are many other attractions close by.
We are working on our Guest line up, and we are excited to announce that our first two Guests of Honor will be Michael J. Walsh and Tom Kidd.
Thanks and hope to see you in Baltimore in 2018!

Ports in a Storm
During a major storm, there is nothing safer than a good port. Situated in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, WFC2018 plans to explore all forms of safe havens. From churches to oases and ports, there are many places of sanctuary which provide respite for characters in fantasy, horror, and weird tales. Each of these places will be explored.
Celebrating the 200th Anniversary of Frankenstein
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, was first published in 1818. It remains relevant and has influenced writers throughout its history. There are multiple films, novels, and homages to the work. WFC2018 plans to explore these influences and its derivative works.
