Other Aspects of the Convention

Where to Find Us

On Friday and Saturday during the day, and Sunday morning, the convention will be in the top floor of the RICC. The RICC has three full floors and two mezzanines, all numbered, so we're officially on the fifth floor.

On Thursday, all evenings, and Sunday afternoon, most of the convention will be on the third floor of the Westin hotel; however, the largest events (auto-graphing, theatricals, awards banquet) will be on the first floor of the Westin.

From the Biltmore: Turn left as you go out the main entrance. The Westin, a tall, narrow building with a gabled roof, will be visible in front of you. As you walk towards the Westin across Fountain and Eddy streets, the street you are on bends to the left; the round glass-and-stone tower of the near corner of the RICC will appear from behind the red brick building housing the Providence Journal. Escalators and elevators are both near the entrance at the base of this tower.

From the RICC North Garage: Take the east elevator to level 4; doors leading to the RICC and Westin will be to the left (in the corner). Go down the ramp behind these doors and through another set of doors, arriving at the second floor of the Westin. Doors to the RICC third floor are on your right, with elevators and escalators at the end of a short passage; elevators and stairs to the function floors of the Westin are beyond the Arbor Café (to your left) and the IYAC Bar.

From the Westin to the RICC: Go to the second floor; make a right turn from the elevator lobby, a left beyond the escalator from the wide staircase from the third floor, or a left U-turn from the escalator from the first floor. Take the first right; go past the IYAC Bar and around the Arbor Cafe to the doors leading to the RICC third floor; elevators and escalators are at the end of a short passage.

Registration

Registration will be in the Westin Hotel, 3rd floor, on Thursday, from around 4 pm to around 9:30, then will go to a schedule of being in the RICC for the daytime and the Westin for the evening.

Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers. Please come find us at the RICC on Thursday. We need help building the Art Show, setting up Registration and Hospitality, etc., and we'd appreciate your company. You don't need to bother telling us in advance--just show up and surprise us.

Child Care

Because there was little demand for it, WFC will not be providing child care. Child care can be arranged through the hotels.

Program

We're planning two tracks of program, plus readings, all of the usual, and a few surprises. As usual in this stage of program development, the ideas/titles are still cast in Silly Putty, but we think we have a good balance among various areas of fantasy. Some panels we're pretty sure of (there will be more) include:

Success and Failure in the Portrayal of Evil
True Grit--Quests are Hard, and War Is Hell!
When Is Humor NOT Funny?
How Does the Magic Work?
Nightmares and Dreams
The Character of Death
Crossing the Genres: SF, Fantasy, and Horror
Grow Old Along With Me: Aging Your Characters
Coyote, and Others
The Middle Class in Fantasy
Beyond the Black Gate (Heroic Voyages to Hell and Back: From Orpheus to Frodo)
Fantasy, Horror, Current Events, and Moral Responsibility
The Changing of the Dark: How Has Horror Evolved?
From the Elder Gods to...(Fantasy/Horror Without Joseph Campbell?)
Knowing Too Much: How Can a Sophisticated Reader/Writer Enjoy Fantasy?
The Heroine's Journey
Lovecraft and the Age of Exploration
The Image of "Home" in Fantasy
Why Adults Love YA Fantasy
Using Real Places as Fantasy Settings
Fantasy Landscapes of New England
Things You Should Have Read (Fiction and Non-Fiction)
The State of Fantasy Today: Best of the Year

What else?

Well, we'll have readings, slide shows, focus sessions on important figures in the field, and interactive workshops on poetry, storytelling, creativity, and business issues.

In the evenings (after the main events, of course!), we're planning to have some thematically grouped program items to help flesh out special interests. Thursday we'll be "Time Travellin' "--looking backward and forward in the field of fantasy (which could include such topics as "The Evolution of WFC" and "Does Fantasy Prepare People for Change?").

On Friday, we'll concentrate on certain aspects of the darker side of the field with "Stories of the Night" (which could include "Vampires: How They Have Mutated?," "A Guide to the [New] Gothic Genre," "Speculative Erotica," and perhaps a Lovecraft grave tour).

"Pipers at the Gates of Night" on Saturday--how are music, creation, and fantasy intertwined? If we have performers, we'll set up a cabaret across the corridor from the hospitality room.

Be prepared to have a great time with us.

Autograph Reception

People who wish to sign autographs may enter starting at 7:30 pm. There will be tent cards with your name for all pre-registered members--pick up your tent card at the convention table outside the ballroom. Seats are unassigned; some are reserved for the Guests of Honor.

For people getting autographs we have the following policies--

There will be refreshments and a cash bar just outside the ballroom.

Saturday Night Theatricals

The Tempest production is as retold by Bruce Coville with material from the original play by William Shakespeare. This retelling is embellished with art by Ruth Sanderson and music by Jean Sibelius, Incidental Music to Shakespeare's "The Tempest."

Another Part of the Trilogy by John M. Ford, our TM, is a fantasy pastiche sung to music from an eclectic collection of composers from Sir Arthur Sullivan and Cole Porter to Meredith Willson and Stephen Sondheim.

Both these playlets were raving hits when run at Boskone. We are currently casting readers and singers, in fact, so if you would like to take part, please get in touch with us at info@noreascon.org. This event will be produced by Ann Broomhead and directed by Suford Lewis.

World Fantasy Banquet

The menu is:

Appetizers: New England Clam Chowder and Fresh Fruits with Coconut Crème
Salad: Mixed Seasonal Greens
Dinner Entrée (choice of one):
Prime Rib of Beef with Horseradish Cream Sauce
Broiled Salmon Filet with Dill Hollandaise Sauce
Roasted Double Breast of Chicken with Tomato and Tarragon Concasse
Dessert: Triple Chocolate Mousse Torte--three layers of fudge cake, filled with chocolate mousse, coated with chocolate ganache

You can order your banquet tickets using the form on the inside back cover. The cost is $42/ticket (this includes tax and gratuity)--World Fantasy Convention members only.

Advance sales of banquet tickets close 22 October. Please buy your tickets in advance. The banquet is not included in membership; it costs $42/meal. We do not promise that tickets will be available at the door.

We can arrange for a vegetarian dinner (same price) if you write to us in advance about it.

Publishers (or others) who wish to purchase an entire table (10 settings) please write to us "Attn: Banquet," or email info@noreascon.org.

You may find it advisable to have only a light breakfast or no breakfast at all. We call especial attention to the dessert.

Luggage storage after you check out is no problem. The Westin is used to it and has the space for storing quantities of luggage pending final departures.

Dealers' Room

We have allocated all the tables in the Dealers' Room. Detailed mailings will be sent directly to the dealers.

We are planning a retrospective exhibit to recall memories and give newer members an idea of the previous World Fantasy Conventions. If you have material that you think might be appropriate and would like to lend this to the convention for display, please write to us "Attn: Retrospective" or email to info@noreascon.org.

Hospitality

The Hospitality Suite will provide a pleasant place for people to meet and talk. Light refreshments will be provided. It will be in the RICC during the day; a more traditional Hospitality Suite will be in the Westin Hotel in the evenings.

Room Parties: The Westin Hotel has fairly strict rules about hospitality in rooms. If you are planning hospitality in your room or suite, we ask that you talk to Ben Yalow (info@noreascon.org) to assist you in making your party run smoothly. The convention will be glad to assist people with any logistical questions concerning hospitality.

Getting There

Air: Providence's airport is T. F. Green, in Warwick, RI; code PVD. Getting to the convention site costs $9 per person for an hourly shuttle; the shuttle runs a circular route, so it takes 15 minutes to get to the Westin Hotel from the airport, but it takes 45 minutes to get from the Westin Hotel to the airport. Allow for this when planning your departure. It costs about $20 for a cab.

Some travel agents may recommend Boston's Logan Airport (BOS); this is not a good alternative for most members because of increased congestion on the roads between it and Providence. Expect a 90-120 minute drive.

FOR OUR INTERNATIONAL VISITORS: The Providence airport is not a port of entry into the United States. Members flying across the North Atlantic will probably find it easiest to make a connection in an eastern-U.S. port of entry, as ground travel from the nearest international airport (Boston/Logan) is congested because of construction and requires at least one transfer (except for a hired limousine). Members coming from other directions can make connections in their usual ports of entry.

"Southwest Airlines is offering a 10% discount on most of its already low fares, for travel to and from the 25th World Fantasy Convention. Call (or have your professional travel agent call) the Southwest Airlines Group and Meeting Desk at 1-800-433-5368, Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm and Saturday, 9:30 am - 3:30 pm and refer to I.D. Code T8039. Call by no later than 5 days prior to first date of travel to take advantage of this offer. Call right away as fares are subject to terms and availability."

Travel in or out of Dallas Love Field is subject to the requirements of the Wright Amendment.

The off-hours telephone tape message says that Southwest's groupline hours are 7 am-8 pm weekdays and 8:30 am-5:30 pm weekends, Central time--go figure!

Rail: The Amtrak Providence station is a long walk (about ½ mile) or a short taxi ride from the RICC and the hotels. 1-800-USA-RAIL (872-7245) or http://www.amtrak.com.

Bus: Bonanza Bus Lines runs frequent trips to and from Boston and Logan Airport. Their Providence-area terminal is off I-95, at exit 25. Bonanza runs a free shuttle from that terminal to downtown Providence, about one block from the hotels. For a bus schedule call 1-403-751-8800. Their web site is http://www.bonanzabus.com.

Greyhound bus runs frequent trips to and from New York at about half the Amtrak fare. Their terminal is about 3 blocks from the hotels. For fare and schedule information, phone 1-800-231-2222. Their web site is http://www.greyhound.com.

Auto:

From Points South (New York City, Southern Connecticut, South County, and the airport), take I-95 North to Exit 16 to Route 10 North. Continue North to the Dean Street exit. Once on the exit, stay to the left, and at the light cross over Dean Street. Then take your first right onto West Exchange Street to the RI Convention Center Garage.

From Points North (Eastern Massachusetts including Boston & Vicinity), take I-95 South to the Civic Center Interchange, Exit 22, Downtown Providence. Stay to the left on the ramp, at the end go right. At the light go right to the RI Convention Center Garage.

Alternate Southbound Exit: I-95 South to Exit 21, Atwells Avenue. At the top of the ramp take a right, then take your second right onto Bradford Street. Follow Bradford to the end and take a right onto West Exchange Street. Straight ahead is the entrance to the RI Convention Center Garage.

From Points Northwest (Worcester and Northern RI), take 146 South to I-95 South. Take I-95 South to the Civic Center Interchange, Exit 22, Downtown Providence. Stay to the left on the ramp, at the end go right. At the first light go right to the RI Convention Center Garage. (For an Alternate Exit follow the southbound directions above for Exit 21.)

Alternate Exit: Take 146 South to I-95 South to Exit 21, Atwells Avenue. At the top of the ramp take a right, then take your second right onto Bradford Street. Follow Bradford to the end and take a right onto West Exchange Street. Straight ahead will be the entrance to the RI Convention Center Garage.

From Points East (Fall River, New Bedford, and Cape Cod), take I-195 West to I-95 North. Take Exit 22, "Downtown Providence" (second exit), and stay to the Right to Downtown Providence. At the light, go right. At the first light go right to the RI Convention Center Garage.

From Points West (Hartford and Eastern Connecticut), follow Route 6 East to the "To Route 6 East and I-295 South" sign on ramp. Take a right and stay to the right following the signs to Providence and Route 6 East (you will use part of the I-295 on-ramp to get onto Route 6 East). Stay on Route 6 East to the end (sign will then read "6 East to 10 North") and stay to the left, continue to the Dean Street Exit. Once on the exit, stay to the left, and at the light, cross over Dean Street. Then take your first right onto West Exchange Street to the RI Convention Center Garage.

Parking: as of 15 August 1999, the rate at the RI Convention Center Garage (a private concession) is $8 for a 24-hour day; $10 for a 24-hour day with in-out privileges. These rates are for Westin Hotel guests. Usual rates are up to a maximum of $12 per day. All rates are subject to change without notice. Park in the North Garage (on the right as you go under the Convention Center); getting to the facilities from there is easier.
