History of WisCon

I’ll be leaving for WisCon tomorrow, and after checking something on their website, I found this excellent page:

History of WisCon.

It contains a list of the past conventions and their guests of honor. For some, the guest of honor speeches are available as PDF downloads.

I highly recommend reading some of the speeches:

Carol Emshwiller.

Nalo Hopkinson.

Ursula K. LeGuin.

I hope some more of the recent speeches make it online soon.

About Victoria Janssen

Victoria Janssen [she, her] currently writes cozy space opera for Kalikoi. The novella series A Place of Refuge begins with Finding Refuge: Telepathic warrior Talia Avi, genius engineer Miki Boudreaux, and augmented soldier Faigin Balfour fought the fascist Federated Colonies for ten years, following the charismatic dissenter Jon Churchill. Then Jon disappeared, Talia was thought dead, and Miki and Faigin struggled to take Jon’s place and stay alive. When the FC is unexpectedly upended, Talia is reunited with her friends and they are given sanctuary on the enigmatic planet Refuge. The trio of former guerillas strive to recover from lifetimes of trauma, build new lives on a planet with endless horizons, and forge tender new connections with each other.

    I love Ursula K. LeGuin. The Left Hand of Darkness was one of my all-time favorite books I ever had to read for school.

  2. Victoria Janssen says:

    I love her essay collections, too–she has a new one out from Acqueduct Press that I just bought.

    Have a wonderful time, Victoria!
    Ursula K. LeGuin was one of my favorites growing up, too. :)
