One of the things I love about Finncon is the way in which the foreign guests all say “I can’t wait to come back”. It will, of course, be impossible to give every writer attending a Worldcon the same level of individual care and attention that is lavished on the Guests of Honor at a Finncon, but nevertheless it gives you a good idea of how well Finnish conventions are run.
And in case you think that’s just this year, here are a couple of tweets that came in while I was in Helsinki.
@CherylMorgan Aww. Finncon. Such good memories! Love to all.
