Statue of Liberty

NYT makes time for SF?

Who would have expected a sympathetic account of the science fiction convention scene from the NY Times? I certainly wouldn't have, but then I saw this article (in the NYT travel section--don't know why that surprises me). NYT ran the article on May 4 but I only noticed it recently. It mostly describes a southern con, but it also lists several upcoming conventions in other places.

Of course, the reporter couldn't resist leading with a photo of two people dressed as satyrs. Oh, well. To balance that out, I've posted a picture of the dealers' room at Balticon.
