Condition of Membership
The World Fantasy Convention is a gathering of professionals and like-minded individuals which meets annually to network, to conduct business and to celebrate excellence & achievements within the field.

WFC 2012 has a no tolerance policy for harassment or other inappropriate behaviour. WFC 2012 reserves the right to revoke the membership of and to escort off the premises any member who behaves outside the bounds of social decency and/or who contravenes federal, provincial, or municipal laws and statutes.

Should an incident occur, please contact facility security and the convention chair and/or vice-chairs without delay.

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.
