- DATES: February 9-11, 1968.
- VENUE: Lord Baltimore Hotel, Baltimore, MD
- GoH: Samuel R. Delany
- Memories From Mark Owings:
"Balticon 2 sticks in my mind mostly for the attendance of Ted Pauls, who
I think otherwise had not spoken to another fan outside his home in ten
years. There was a Star Trek role-playing game played at night in which one
penalty required the player to proposition Spock. I think the player with the
penalty and the person playing Spock were invariably of the same sex."
- In 2019 we found a con report from a Fanzine known as The Science Fiction Times with issue date of 04/31/1968 that reads...
The second regional Baltimore Science Fiction Conference, held over the weekend of February 9 to 11, drew an attendance of 115 fans and pros. The program Saturday afternoon was based on the theme, “Is There A ‘New Wave’ In SF?” It consisted of a panel with Lin Carter, Alexis Gilliland and Andrew Porter, with Jack Chalker as moderator; a dialogue between Ted White and Roger Zelazny, with Jack Chalker moderating; and a speech by Samuel R. Delany.
The balance of the weekend was devoted to partying and dining. The Baltimore group which sponsored the Conference reported a deficit of $25 for the weekend.
