World Fantasy Convention 2013 was held October 31-November 3, 2013 at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, Brighton, United Kingdom.

The GoH list was bewilderingly large and complicated: Richard Matheson (who died before the convention) and Richard Christian Matheson were "Honorary" Guests of Honor, while the actual Guests of Honor were Joanne Harris, and Joe Hill, the Guest Artist was Alan Lee, and Brian Aldiss, Tessa Farmer, and Robert Lloyd Parry were Special Guests. The convention's theme was "Arthur Machen @ 150", and it was chaired by Stephen Jones and Michael Marshall Smith.

China Miéville was originally scheduled to be the Toastmaster, but was forced by circumstances to cancel. He instead sent The Apology Chapbook, containing 8 stories, which was printed as a special book for con attendees. Neil Gaiman was the replacement Toastmaster.
