If you are still undecided about whether you want to make the trip to Baltimore, and think there is nothing for +Baltimore Science Fiction Society there. You would be wrong. We could write a long blog about it but we thought we would do one better. Baltimore Public Library has a podcast and they interviewed two of the principals involved with the Creatures, Crimes and Creativity conference

This conference is for all authors, fans, writers and publishers. Where else could be an active participant and have their books to sell? 

We hope to see you there.
