Head on over to find information ranging from travel and hotel arrangments to a brief and overview of Salem itself. Make sure you check out the Merchandise and Downloads sections for links to the official Witching Hour Store and fun icons, avatars and wallpaper images.
Three special guests were also announced recently, including author Holly Black and MIT's Henry Jenkins, director of "comparative media" studies there. (Videogame site Penny Arcade has an interview with Jenkins that is worth a read, and explains just what "comparative media" is and why it's so cool.)
