Balticon 41 was, hands down, the most interesting convention I’ve yet attended. As I am greatly fatigued and need to rise in a few short hours to put on a good face for orientation at the new job tomorrow – ignoring the fact that I just worked at this same place for four years, and only left two years ago – I’ve decided to save my personal thoughts on my Balticon experience for another day.
Some of the excellent people I hung out with there have posted some great insights elsewhere, which are worth your time to read – a few of these belong to Steve Eley, Christiana Ellis, and Matt Wallace.
All that said, Matthew Wayne Selznick‘s retrospective is truly a home run. It’s been hard for me to put some of my feelings about our convention experience, and this community we’ve found ourselves in, into fulfilling words. Matt did.
My words, soon.
