  • From Sharon Lee:

    I was a member of Balticon 10. It was my Very First Ever SF convention and I was there because I had won the short story contest. My prize was free membership to the convention, twenty-five dollars, and a chance to meet Isaac Asimov.

    George Andrews, head of the contest, met me at registration on Saturday morning. I fear I was a little too mundane for him, so he left me to the care of his wife, Kathy, a very nice and gracious lady. Eventually, I was turned loose in the dealer's room, where I joyously divested myself of my winning$, discovered the art show, spent some time talking to one of my college classmates, a Mr. Steve Miller, and his wife, Sue. I *did* meet Isaac Asimov, who was charming, and who did his best to put a nervous newbie at ease.

    I'm sure I attended some panels, since I was very seriously trying to Figure It All Out, but the subjects are long lost to memory. Since I was a newbie, and very shy to boot, I didn't know about the parties, and left the con early in the evening.

    I didn't make it back on Easter Sunday, since I was promised to my parents, and I somehow missed the announcement of Balticon 11. But I was back again the year Anne McCaffrey was GoH, and, well, it sorta snowballed, I guess...
