I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been invited to participate in the Programming Track for Balticon 54, which will be held in Baltimore from May 22 – 25, 2020. This is a great literary SF convention, and one that I highly recommend for SF/Fantasy readers. Plus, it’s being held in Inner Harbor, so it makes a great springboard for enjoying some of downtown Baltimore’s other tourist attractions (perhaps, most notably, the National Aquarium).
I also have a soft spot in my heart for Balticon. In 1989, at age 26, it was only the second SF convention that I had ever attended. My first convention had been Shore Leave, which back then was pretty exclusively a Star Trek affair, and, while fun, it hadn’t really satisfied my craving for a more wide-ranging SF/Fantasy experience. And then came Balticon, oh my.
I’ve been attending regularly, as often as I can, for years. I’m honored to be invited to participate in the convention’s 2020 Programming Track.
