It Was A Capclave Weekend

Capclave is the official DC area (as opposed to Baltimore area) con. It's held in Maryland. According to their notes, Baltimore and Balticon began when Jack Chalker and others got stuck in a snowstorm heading home from a meeting and decided they needed an organization closer to home. Well, Jack is no longer with us and Balticon is much larger than Capclave. It's also more oriented towards art and media and music. Capclave is unabashedly a reader's con. (Some mad gamers were in the con suite, but what's a con without mad gamers?) Capclave's dealer's room is almost exclusively books.
