Ditto Fifteen - Toronto, 18-20 October, 2002

DITTO FIFTEEN

Flyer # 3, August 2002, News

Ditto 15 members will receive a collection of the writing of multiple-Hugo-nominee Taral Wayne. Included is the unpublished "Scenic Rout." The collection's title is Taralable Fan Writing. Taral unfortunately is best known as an artist, unfortunately because Taral is at least as fine a writer as he is an artist.

Ditto returns to Toronto in 2002.

Ditto, the 15th annual gathering of SF fanzine fans, returns to the city of its 1988 founding.

When?

The weekend of October 18-19-20, 2002.

Where?

Days Inn Toronto Downtown, 30 Carlton Street, Toronto, Ontario. Canada, next door to Maple Leaf Gardens. To the north is SF book store Bakka Books, in business since 1972. South is the World's Biggest Book Store and the Eaton's Centre. West is the Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation and Fantasy.

Why?

Murray Moore, Catherine Crockett, Lloyd and Yvonne Penney, Colin Hinz, Mike Glicksohn, Taral, Jim Caughran, and the rest of the Toronto area fanzine fans think 2002 is a good year for fans to (re)discover Canada's largest city, and one of the oldest centres of Canadian written fanac. You can also get a head start on the 61st WorldCon, Torcon 3, happening on the 2003 Labour Day weekend.
