New York in '92

Wikidot is dying. This site has moved to

Possibly a hoax hoax bid, it (somewhat incoherently) proposes a New York bid in 1992 for the 50th anniversary of the Worldcon. (This is incorrect, of course. The 50th anniversary was in 1989. 1992 does mark the 50th Worldcon, since three Worldcons were skipped due to WW II.)

It also may have been yet another fratricidal bit of New York fannish politics aiming to kill the New York in '89 bid. In late 1984 Robert Sacks thought Stu Hellinger was involved in it.

Whatever, the bid did not file, and the right to run the 1992 Worldcon was won by Orlando in '92. See 1992 Site Selection results.

The address given on the flyer (9 Knollwood Dr, North Caldwell, NJ) was the same address used by Steve Davidson and Joseph S. Zitt to publish Contact-- SF.

This is a bid page. Please extend it by adding information about who was bidding, officers, committee list, what they were bidding for, who their opponents were, and anything notable about the bid, etc.
