PARTIES Party Czar: Kitty Jensen [ street address deleted ] Because the new hotel does not have a distinct Cabana Area, we will not be directly booking rooms in a party area. However we strongly encourage anyone who is holding an open party to request a room on a low floor. This will hopefully save considerable wear and tear on both the Hotel's elevators and the convention membership's nerves. People who wish to receive information on local party stores or other party information should contact the Party Czar. CHILD CARE Eva Whitley [ street address deleted ] Child care is available for children up to six years of age. It will cost $25.00 per child. This fee must be paid and the child's registration sent in before April 30, 1992 (make checks payable to DISCLAVE '92). The registration information must include the child's age and any special requirements. Expected hours are Noon to midnight on Friday, and 10 AM to midnight on both Saturday and Sunday. Parents who are tardy in picking up their children by closing time may have their child care privileges revoked by the babysitter. HUXTER'S ROOM Scott and Jane Dennis [ street address deleted ] Requests for Dealer's Information should go to Scott. ART SHOW Lance Oszko [ street address deleted ] Hanging Fees: none Commission: 10% ($40.00 max) For further info and to reserve space, contact Lance Oszko HOME BY THE SEA The previously mention publication will be a 300-page limited edition of 500 signed, numbered, and slipcased copies.

She isn't any of those things; what she is is another typical beautiful genius foul- mouthed Supermom from K.C. whose works cause me to bite holes in my desk every time I read a new one." -- Howard Waldrop "Pat Cadigan has a very dirty mind." -- Robert A.
