Sasquan Worldcon Report 3

Since Vonda McIntyre is the Guest of Honor here, Book View Cafe had to throw its first publisher party. I ran it, Madeleine Robins baked a cake, and Sara Stamey (who has a car and a Costco card) bought provender, And in honor of The Moon and the Sun the cake has a mermaid!


Is that not magnificent?

Let me see if I can get in one more shot, of Vonda cutting this masterpiece. It was chocolate on the inside, by the way, which means it has every possible good quality. We devoured nearly all of it.

    • It was a very large cake… my understanding is that about half of the bottom tier was donated to the con suite, where it was consumed by whoever there wanted cake, canines or otherwise.

  1. The cake was beautiful, and extremely tasty. Madeleine is almost as good a baker as she is a writer, and I say “almost” only because of my admiration for her writing.

    We did not eat the mermaid.


  2. I had to miss the party. Very sad about that. But I did have a great dinner with the DAW crowd to make up for it. The next day I snagged 1 small piece of cake from the Con suite. It was magnificent. Just enough to keep me going until a late lunch. So rich and luscious. I nominate that cake for an award.
