Couldn’t get to Balticon? Yeah, me either. Neither, as it turns out, could Elizabeth Campbell, the lead editor of the Darkcargo blog. So to soothe her disappointment, and the shared disappointment of geeks missing Balticon everywhere, she organized At-Home-Con:

We were going to head to Baltimore this weekend to join in the festivities at Balticon, listen to Jonah Knight and Bill and Brenda Sutton.

Stop by Darkcargo and join the fun. Yes, you really can wear that.

That slush I read!
I do not like that slush I read.
