Oct 29 - Nov 1, 2020
Little America Hotel - Salt Lake City, 500 South Main St., Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA

An annual convention of fantasy authors, artists, collectors, and enthusiasts. It includes presentation of the World Fantasy Awards.

The 2020 theme is "Fairyland was Nothing Like This."

From the organizers: "Fantasy and horror have journeyed far from their origins. From folklore and fairy tales to dystopia and steampunk, who could have foreseen the genre as it exists today? This convention will highlight books, authors, and art that have transformed fantasy and horror over the years. What elements of the genres have changed through the decades, and which have remained the same?"

Special guests include Stephen Gallagher, David Cherry, C.J. Cherryh, Stephen Graham Jones, Cindy Pon, Anne Groell, and Tracy and Laura Hickman.
