Unicon's first con in the Annapolis Holiday Inn was tremendous. It was (as usual) a very friendly con; in its time, Unicon was one of the few conventions to give pros not one but two free memberships. That gesture, which cost the committee nothing, was always greatly appreciated.

Don was on two panels: Saturday afternoon's "Critics and Reviewers," and that evening's "I Am the World's Oldest Young New Writer" starring Esther Friesner. Don wishes he could remember the second panel, it sounds interesting.

The Unicon film program this year was an animation festival; you haven't lived until you've been in a room with five hundred sf fans watching "Duck Dodgers in the 24th-and-a-Half Century."

Despite the break in tradition (this was the first odd-numbered Unicon since the first few), it was still a great con. If anything, Unicon had improved with age.
