Transcript 1ST WORLD FANTASY CONVENTION October 31-November 2,1975 Holiday Inn, Providence, Rhode Island Robert Bloch — Guest of Honor Gahan Wilson — Toastmaster i This will be the first large convention entirely devoted to fantasy and supernatural horror. It will be highlighted by a banquet featuring the presentation of the first annual World Fantasy Awards, the awards to be in the form of a bust of H. P.

Awards will be made for life- work, and in the following categories for work published during 1973-1974: best novel, best short work, best short story collection from a single author, best artist, and two special awards for professional and non-professional work, respectively.

Sprague de Camp, Donald S. Fryer, Karl Edward Wagner, Glenn Lord, and Willis Conover. Planned are readings by the authors, bus tours of LOVE- CRAFT'S Providence, complete with commentator, ending at the John Hay Library of Brown University where a special exhibition of original Lovecraft materials will be on display for the convention, panel discussions, a huckster room and art show of superior quality. An awards committee whose names will be announced in our next flyer is currently being set up. Full information on how the awards work will be made in August.
