I met my husband and most of my friends through science fiction conventions. I've met many authors and have literally a ton of books and videos in my basement. My brothers introduced me to SF at an early age and I inherited their paperback collection. It's all good. Here are a couple of great pictures from The World Science Fiction Convention in New Orleans, in 1988:
Yes, my friends, that's an actual Hugo Award from the, I think, Tor Publishing party. One of the authors had it for us to admire. They're of a different design each year, but I thought this was lovely.
The late, great Ken Moore as a futuristic soldier, from I believe, Joe Halderman's Forever War.
This dude was part of a group of undersea creatures that were pretty amazing. The character in the snail costume had a gossamer trail that rolled out behind her.
These are from the Boston World Science Fiction Convention the next year, 1989.
Last minute touches on another costume that was another cover reproduction.
So, thanks for sharing a walk down my memory lane. It was 30 years ago that some of our local SF fans and gamers started the conventions in our area and I really miss those days. Have a great week, everybody!
