It seems like H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival & CthulhuCon was just a few days ago, but it’s already time for the next thing. World Horror Convention 2014, also here in Portland, gets underway starting today.
It’s a Thursday-Sunday convention, four days, though the schedule is only really lengthy on Friday and Saturday. Thursday, it’s just evening programming, and Sunday it’s just late-morning to 2PM. The event takes place at the Double Tree hotel in NE Portland, adjacent to the Lloyd Center mall. It’s the same hotel where my company Christmas party happens. I expect the crowd and atmosphere to look a lot different this time!
Many of the same friends from the HPL Fest are back in Portland, while others are absent. Others are here in Portland for the first time, or at least the first time since I’ve known them. I look forward to a chance to meet up with new friends, associates and colleagues.
