Via press release
The Worldcon Souvenir Book is the convention’s main publication, and will be distributed to attendees at the convention and mailed to those members who do not attend. The publication features information on Worldcon history, the Guests of Honor, the host city, and the membership list, as well as a range of feature articles covering different aspects of science fiction.
The Worldcon Souvenir Book is widely read by the members, with many collecting the books from the events they have attended. As such, it offers the perfect platform for professional and fan organizations to connect with convention members. It will reach an audience almost exclusively composed of science fiction, fantasy, and gaming fans.
Chicon 7 is offering full-, half-, and quarter-page advertising space. Professional rates start at $300 for a quarter-page black-and-white ad and range up to $1,400 for a full page in color. Fan rates start at just $75 for a quarter-page in black and white and range up to $500 for a full page in color. Special rates apply for the inside front and back covers (color only).
