By a bit of poor planning, the Science Fiction Research Association Convention was taking place the same weekend about six miles away. To add to the literary festivities, the BookExpo America was being held the same weekend at McCormick Place in Chicago and the Printer's Row Literary Fair was being held on Dearborn Avenue in Chicago.
