Eclecticon -- November 5, 6, 7, 2004
The Ramada Hotel, Routes 1 & 9 South, Newark, New Jersey

Eclecticon is the East Coast's premier media fanzine con, focusing on
fanfiction and the varied fandoms that inspire it. Our host hotel is
comfy, cozy, and convenient to all major highways, is easily
accessible by public transportation, and features frequent free
shuttle service to and from Newark International Airport.

Activities begin Friday at noon. Feel like talking? Participate in
programming from four tracks of panels or any of our independent
discussion groups, seminars, or specialized workshops. Feeling
competitive? Sign up for our Trivia Contest, play Name That
Soundtrack (winners receive free memberships to Eclecticon 2005), or
be creative in our Write the Caption Contest. Feeling generous? Bid
on our charity auction items. Empty your pockets in our overflowing
dealers' rooms, or relax for a while in the video room or the con

If these activities make you work up an appetite, well, our con suite
is famous, and with good reason. We provide mass quantities of hot
and cold munchies, hot soup, and hot and cold soft drinks (and
chocolate!) to all members throughout the weekend, all to the
accompaniment of the best fan music videos!

The convention charity is Arcadia Bird Sanctuary and Educational
Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the rescue,
rehabilitation, and health of exotic companion parrots. We're also
accepting donations of non-perishable food for Highways Food Bank, a
non-denominational food pantry which helps the underprivileged in
Hudson County, NJ.

A limited number of dealer tables remain contact Kathy Agel at
[email protected] for more information. For editors who
cannot attend, or attendees who don't feel like staying behind a
dealer table all weekend, we offer the services of our Orphan Zine
table. For more information, contact Anne Collins Smith at
