I’m in St. Paul, ready to head home this morning. Diversicon turned out to be the best little sf con in the universe. Scott Lohman, Eric Heideman, Greg L. Johnson and others put together a book-centered con that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Had a blast. They treated me royally, including an umbrella during a thunderstorm and a grand tour of Minneapolis. I signed at the famous Uncle Hugo’s, met some wonderful people, and had really stimulating discussion on topics like lost worlds, what is a hero, gender roles in sf, moral development in fiction. Came away with a list of books to read and these pictures:
