To help bring back as many former GoHs as possible for Balticon’s Golden Anniversary in May 2016, the con is raising money, beginning with the sale of this souvenir t-shirt for $35 a copy.
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 Wolfe. This list of SF/F stars includes no less than FOUR Grand Masters!
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.
