Mr. Spock, you have the con!

Forget what you see on TV! Science fiction conventions are a lot of fun. For me, the convention season started with Balticon on Memorial Day weekend. Next up is Worldcon in Montreal this August. Then in October comes Capclave, which will be in Rockville again this year. The World Fantasy Convention will be in San Jose at the end of October, but that will, unfortunately be over my budget, which is a shame because it's my favorite convention.

If you're planning on going to Worldcon, be sure you take advantage of the Hugo voting packetafter June 30. that is sent to registered members. I'm looking forward to voting (which is open now) as soon as I finish reading the last of the nominated novels (I haven't read all of them all the way through, but I will have read some of all of them). I have read all the short stories, novelletes and novellas, so yay me!

And if you're planning on going to Capclave, register soon because the price goes up $10
