World Horror Convention 1996

A place as lush and beautiful as Eugene, Oregon should be memorialized as much as possible. Jogging along the River Walk alongside the hotel in early May and seeing bushes with raspberries already forming was a stunning sight, indeed. The convention itself was packed full of interest ing people and events. For those poor souls who couldn't share in the fun, here's twelve great photos. Since '96 was a loooong time ago, we're going to skip the flash of pop-ups and just give you the straight goods. Pics are small and won't take too long to load.
