A City of Salt and Fantasy

Updated: Jun 11




Welcome to the official blog for the 45th World Fantasy Convention. In 2020, the annual gathering of professionals, collectors, and fantasy enthusiasts will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah from 29 October through 01 November. We hope this blog will become the go-to place for All Things Fantasy. What books are everyone talking about? What fantasy artists are making a splash? Who are the authors we’ll meet at this year’s convention, and what books are they most excited about? We’ll cover all that and more.


This will be WFC’s first visit to the Beehive State. Why Salt Lake? Because we are a “City of Salt and Fantasy”! A large number of fantasy writers and artists call Utah home, and fantasy enthusiasts abound. We are excited to introduce the members of World Fantasy Convention to Utah, and to introduce Utahns to WFC.


In the coming months we’ll offer interviews, articles, book reviews, and more, written by and about our guests and members. We’ll discuss topics of interest to fantasy aficionados, revisit memorable moments from past WFCs, and delve into the convention’s theme, “Fairyland was nothing like this!”


So bookmark this blog. You don’t want to miss a single post!
