The Encyclopedia of Fantasy Theme

The dual themes of World Fantasy 2012 are Northern Gothic and Urban Fantasy.

Gothic Fantasy
Gothic fiction usually takes place in an ancient castle or abbey... The cityscape has replaced the old castle and Urban Fantasy is the new Gothic.

Urban Fantasy
A city is a place; urban fantasy is a mode. A city may be an icon or a geography; the Urban Fantasy recounts an experience. A city may be seen from afar, and is generally seen clear; the Urban Fantasy is told from within, and, from the perspective of characters acting out their roles.

WFC2012 Digital Content Guidelines

E-books & E-zines

We have prepared suggested donation guidleines and specifications as a PDF file linked here or linked to the image at right. This guide will enable you to promote and bring your work to the attention of the membership. Our physical bookbag will once again be complemented by our “virtual bookbag.” A packet of postcards will be in each member’s bookbag, with an explanatory cover that will include a WFC 2012 website address where all donations will be listed. Each postcard will stand for your donation of e-content for our membership.

Art Show

If you have previously exhibited in a World Fantasy Convention Art Show in 2 of the last 4 years (please tell us which ones—we are required to check), have been a Guest of Honour at a World Fantasy Convention, have been a World Fantasy Award winner, you are exempt from the jury selection process. You may apply without any further steps.
