Room Reservation Cutoff Reminder

If you’re going to the Nebula Conference, don’t forget the block deadline is Wednesday, April 26. This is your last chance to make a reservation at the conference hotel.  Make a reservation.

If you already have a reservation, please check your confirmation E-mail to ensure your reservation dates match the dates you plan to be in Pittsburgh.

If you try to reserve before April 26 and can’t get a room (hotel claims the block is full), please e-mail immediately and he should be able to help.  If you wait until after April 26 to reserve, there is nothing he can do to get you a room at SFWA’s reduced rate.
