According to Tereshkova 2001’s tweet, she would be at Norwescon. I hoped to get a picture of her this year.
While I was sitting in a hallway, she happened to walk past. This supports the theory that if you stay in one place long enough, the whole world will pass by. And it doesn’t even count as stalking.
I had seen her last year at Worldcon in Reno, and my post from August of last year shows my previous picture of her. Some resemblance, wouldn’t you say?
In the same hallway, I saw a woman dressed as a fairy.
Obviously, people put a lot of work into their costumes for cosplay (costume play).
Also, Jean Johnson, the author of A Soldier’s Duty, was nominated for the Philip K. Dick award for best new science fiction paperback. I’ve heard her do public readings before, and she read an excerpt from her book.
Although she didn’t win, she said she’s received correspondence from active duty military of all sorts of ranks telling her how the book resonates with them.
