Transcript The Fourth World Fantasy Convention ALICIA AUSTIN Artist Guest of Honor FRITZ LEIBER Guest of Honor GAHAN WILSON Toastmaster Commemorating ROBERT E. HOWARD The Fourth World Fantasy Convention is being held in Fort Worth, Texas on Friday, October 13th through Sunday, October 15th of this year at the Sheraton-Fort Worth Hotel* The convention's theme will be the life and works of Robert E. Howard. At last, the contributions and accomplishments of Howard are going to be recognized in his own state. Even though the majority of the convention's programming will concern R.E.H., other aspects of horror, fantasy, and the supernatural will be examined and explored through a series of panels, readings, displays, and films. Our programming is receiving strong professional participation. At this time... RAMflE¥ qatMtfc HUGH B. CAVE C.J. CHERRYH L. SPRAGUE DECAMP STEPHEN DONALDSON HARLAN ELLISON CHARLES L. GRANT DONALD GRANT STEPHEN KING TIM KIRK GLENN LORD H. WARNER MUNN ANDREW J. OFFUTT STUART DAVID SCHIFF KARL EDWARD WAGNER ROBERT WEINBERG MANLY WADE WELLMAN JACK WILLIAMSON ...are planning to attend as Featured Guests. The panel topics currently being discussed include such varied subjects as Dark Fantasy, Modern Heroic Fantasy, the writing of pastiches based on Howard characters, and perhaps a panel devoted solely to Weird Tales. We also plan to feature a question and answer session with some of the people who were contemporaries of Howard's. There will be a special reading of the Conan story, "The Phoenix on the Sword" by Guest of Honor Fritz Leiber. Manly Wade Wellman will read a selection from his "Who Fears the Devil" collection and Harlan Ellison will unveil a story written especially for the convention. L. Sprague will read portions of his biography of Robert E. Howard that is currently in preparation. One of the most outstanding features of the convention will be the art show which will include a special display of the art of Alicia Austin. Ms. Austin's art, while beautiful in reproduction, is breathtaking in the original. Also on display will be paintings by Virgil Finlay, Hannes Bok, Kelly Freas, George Barr, David Ireland, Michael Hague, Mahlon Blaine, and a large number of drawings by Virgil Finlay. All artists, professional or otherwise, wishing to display for auction should contact us and we will respond with an information packet.
