Toronto World Horror Convention

I may not have time to do a proper con report, what with Rollback officially being released in two days, so let me just say for the record that the Toronto World Horror Convention was one of the finest genre-fiction conventions ever in Toronto.

Many also said it was the finest World Horror Convention ever, and several people likened it to the best of the World Fantasy Conventions from the 1980s.

My own take: this particular convention was the closest thing to Readercon I've seen outside of Boston, and, frankly, was more fun and less stodgy than Readercon without in any way being less professionally focussed. A truly wonderful event. My hat is off to Amanda Foubister, Stephen Jones, Mandy Slater, and their very hard working team.

&, Capt. Sawyer, it will probably be known as the largest gathering of Wordstar Users this year!

Grand go-around all around, wasn't it?
