    Tonight is the Worldcon Masquerade. People have been lined up for over an hour already. The Masquerade starts in just over 45 minutes from now. image-3119481168.jpg image-4003043366.jpg image-1600578059.jpg

    They certainly put a lot of time and effort in their costumes. Are there winners among the ones you posted?

    In last night's episode of 4 Rooms (Channel 4) a seller was looking for £15k for an original Dalek. IMO he was being greedy. The dealers agreed with me. :)
    Needless to say it wasn't sold.

    Thanks, Andrew. The convention was a lot of fun for 5 days and now it's over for another year. :(
    Next year the convention is in London, England and will be called Loncon3.

    Planet Earth and its inhabitants are poorer tonight.

    R.I.P. Ann C. Crispin

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/arts/story/2013/09/06/ann-ac-crispin-author-dies.html

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ann_C._Crispin

    For my money, one of Ms. Crispin's remarkable accomplishments, was adapting the last screenplay in the A L I E N movie franchise 'Resurrection' for novelization.
    Stories 1 thru 3 were adapted by Alan Dean Foster. They have very different writing styles and the A L I E N story arc was horribly muddied by the 3rd movie because of
    endless studio re-writes. 'Resurrection', the fourth film, was a Joss Whedon script and as much as I like his work he didn't do the screenplay justice. But Ann Crispin made up for everything with her story treatment in the novelization.

    I was lucky to have met her and Fred Pohl at previous conventions. Thanks for letting us know, Admiral.

    You're fortunate indeed. I enjoyed your narrative and photography from the most recent conference in Texas scifan.
