  • Memories From Mark Owings:

    images/1x1.gif "It was late November of 1970 when Ted Pauls decided to try for another Balticon, and talked to Dave Halterman and I about working on it. He got a guest of honor, Harry Harrison, contacted the Lord Baltimore Hotel, and had a flyer out on the third weekend of December, seven weeks before the convention.
    images/1x1.gif The high point, I suppose, of that Balticon was when Harrison and Ted White, the immediately former and then-current editors of AMAZING and FANTASTIC, started hurling insults at each other and then escalated the volume of their voices with each round."
