Tanya Huff is GOH this year! I wish I’d known that sooner, I would have made some plans around it. I’ve been to Balticon one other time, to see Neil Gaiman; it’s a tiny, tiny con about the size of one of the exhibitor halls at, say, Dragon*Con.
I still might head up there for a day trip … anybody out there who reads this going to be there? For all my famous frothing about being sick of vampires and other monsters-as-protagonists, Tanya Huff gets a pass for doing it before it was cool.
