Transcript HATCON II June 15-17,1984 Ramada Inn Danbury, Connecticut GUESTS: The format for Hatcon is distinctive in that we're trying to promote interaction among various facets of the publishing industry. That's why we have 10 guest categories, rather than the usual writer/artist/fan line-up. We'd like to couple serious talk with a relaxing atmosphere, especially as Hatcon II comes two weeks after the ABA convention in Washington, DC. WRITER: Peter Straub is the author of Ghost Story and Shadowland. PUBLISHER: Tom Doherty publishes TOR Books. EDITOR: Shawna McCarthy edits Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. RETAILER: Joe Gonnella is the merchandise manager, and former SF buyer, for the Waldenbooks chain headquartered in Stamford, CT AGENT: Eleanor Wood is the director of Spectrum Literary Agency, and a partner in Blassingame, McCauley and Wood. FOREIGN REPRESENTATIVE: Thomas Schluck of Germany owns an art and literary agency which handles European sales for many American writers and most SF illustrators. BOOK DEALER: Lloyd W. Currey, the foremost authority on rare SF/fantasy, runs one of the country's largest mail-order SF book businesses. SMALL PRESS: Mark Ziesing's latest title is The Wolfe Archipelago. He also owns a bookstore in Willimantic, CT. ART DIRECTOR: Matt Tepper is the art director for Avon Books. Previously he worked six years for Pocket/Timescape. ARTISTS: Paul Alexander Kevin Johnson Don Maitz Michael Mariano Richard Powers Victoria Poyser David Wenzel Michael Whelan HOTEL: The Ramada Inn is just off I-84 at Exit 8 (203) 792-3800. Room rates are $49 single, $59 double. Reservation cards are sent with membership confirmations. Only 100 of their 128 rooms could be allotted to Hatcon, so book early. Our hotel liaison will work with their sales manager in assigning rooms, so we can meet special requests for adjoining rooms, party wings, etc. No liquor restrictions on private parties. Bring your bathing suit — the glass- enclosed pool is quite nice and the view is great from its sundeck. BANQUET: A champagne brunch for 100 people will be served at 11 a.m. Sunday. Tickets are only $12. DEALERS: Twenty 36" x 6' tables are available for $30 each (membership not included). Limit of 2 per dealer. ARTSHOW: Our art room is small, so we've had to limit this first show to the eight professional SF illustrators who live in Connecticut. Twenty-five 4x4 panels should accommodate about 60 paintings. Any artist may submit prints and posters for sale through a special display in tne dealers' room, at 25% commission. MASQUERADE: To enter the ballroom for the Saturday night bacchanal, you have to wear a hat, the more outlandish the better. Prizes awarded in various categories. We'll have a rock band, lights, media stuff, etc. FILMS: The film program, directed by Doug and Pam Murray, will draw on private collections totalling hundreds of 16mm prints. Write with suggestions for the rare or unusual; they can probably find it. MEMBERSHIPS are $25 through May 1, $30 through June 1, and $35 at the door. Membership limited to 350. Make checks payable to "Hatcon." For charges to MasterCard or Visa, send card number and expiration. HATCON Kennedy Poyser, 108 Park Avenue, Danbury, CT 06810 (203) 743-1872.
