Balticon

This just in…

Seems that despite getting a late start on the arrangements, I will be a guest at next month’s Balticon. It’ll be a first for the family but we’ve always heard wonderful things about the show. Being over Memorial Day weekend though, we’ve tended to stay home, either watching or marching in the annual parade. Timing and opportunity has allowed us to make the pilgrimage south.

We were waiting for several variables to fall into place, including the folk running the long-time event making sure there’d be room for me on the schedule. There’s quite a guest list starting with Guest of Honor Neil Gaiman. I haven’t seen Neil in quite some time so it’ll be good to meet up once more.

Kate and her fellow Boogie Knights will be performing Sunday evening while I’ll be doing the Trailer Park previews Monday morning at 10 (certainly a familiar timeslot).

While Deb is disappointed it won’t be in Baltimore proper, we’re more than ready to spend yet another weekend at the Hunt Valley Inn (which Robbie has come to consider his home away from home). She is looking forward to meeting her fellow knit list pal Brenda Clough, who is also a fan of several trades I’ve edited. All proving the world remains a tiny place.

Whoever is attending, please make sure you say howdy.

    Fair warning; Neil may be a bit dazed. Prior to Balticon, he’s a guest at an Australia con…and his flight from Australia will be arriving in Baltimore on Balticon Friday.
