  • Memories From Mark Owings:
    images/1x1.gif "Balticon 2 sticks in my mind mostly for the attendance of Ted Pauls, who I think otherwise had not spoken to another fan outside his home in ten years. There was a Star Trek role-playing game played at night in which one penalty required the player to proposition Spock. I think the player with the penalty and the person playing Spock were invariably of the same sex."

  • In 2019 we found a con report from a Fanzine known as The Science Fiction Times with issue date of 04/31/1968 that reads...


    The second regional Baltimore Science Fiction Conference, held over the weekend of February 9 to 11, drew an attendance of 115 fans and pros. The program Saturday afternoon was based on the theme, “Is There A ‘New Wave’ In SF?” It consisted of a panel with Lin Carter, Alexis Gilliland and Andrew Porter, with Jack Chalker as moderator; a dialogue between Ted White and Roger Zelazny, with Jack Chalker moderating; and a speech by Samuel R. Delany.

    The balance of the weekend was devoted to partying and dining. The Baltimore group which sponsored the Conference reported a deficit of $25 for the weekend. END
