About this campaign

We are BOLDLY GOING WHERE NO CON HAS GONE BEFORE -- BRINGING BACK, as VERY SPECIAL GUESTS, as many of the Guests of Honor from the the first 49 years of Balticon as are willing and able to attend!

2016 is a very special year for Balticon. It is our 50th year of bringing science fiction and fantasy professionals and fandom together. Returning to our origins in Baltimore City, we have moved to the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel. We will offer a dedicated Dance Hall for dance events, career development intensive seminars for SF/F professionals, free autograph signings (as always), and our usual fantastic programming. We will expand our film festival and filmmaking program.

In addition to Guest of Honor George R. R. Martin, Artist Guest of Honor John Picacio and Music Guests of Honor Bill and Gretchen Roper, and Compton Crook GoH Alexandra Duncan, the following Balticon guest of honor Alumni have accepted our invitation to be our Very Special Guests and help us celebrate our Golden Anniversary: Ben Bova, Steve Barnes and Tananarive Due, Phil and Kaja Foglio, Sheila Finch, Michael Flynn, Joe Haldeman, Donald Kingsbury, Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, R. A. MacAvoy, Larry Niven, Jody Lynn Nye, Nancy Springer, Allen Steele, Charles Stross, Harry Turtledove, John Varley, Jo Walton, Connie Willis and Gene Wolf. This list of SF/F stars includes no less than FOUR Grand Masters!

We are excited and terrified! All of this is going to cost a bundle! To get us started raising the money for this massive undertaking, we offer this unique T-Shirt. The art on the front is our Balticon 50 logo, designed by our own Artist Alley manager and long-time Balticon Art Show exhibitor Tristan Alexander. On the back of the shirt is the list of all of the Balticon Guests of Honor through the years. THIS SHIRT IS ONLY AVAILABLE THROUGH THIS FUND RAISER. It will not be sold at the convention and will not be available after the convention.

Help us to MAKE THIS HAPPEN. Buy a shirt! Buy shirts for the whole family! Wear your Balticon 50 Is Coming shirt everywhere and tell people where you got it! We're counting on you!

I have never actually been to a Balticon - but I love that it exists! Plus - this is a very cool shirt that I'm sure will be worth some cred somewhere down the line when someone recognizes it! :)

Marla & Dan O'Neill 2 items + $26

We love BALTICON!! And what a great idea, to bring back the previous GOHs. It's shaping up to be a wonderfully HUGE 50th celebration, which is as it should be.

Great cause and I want the shirt...

Harriet Culver 1 item + $10

I think it's a great idea to bring back former GOH's. Also I'm a big fan of Sharon Lee and Steve Miller and also of Jo Walton.

Tim Doyle of Bayside Books 1 item

I'm supporting this to be part of fandom history, and to help emphasize the importance of the written text in SF - speculative fiction.
