Jacob Weisman is quite a thoughtful fellow, if a little more low-key than most of the other lunatics frequenting Armadillocon

At No Fear of the Future, Jayme Lynn Blaschke offered his take on the recent ArmadilloCon, which featured Tachyon publisher Jacob Weisman as Editor of Guest of Honor.
The guests-of-honor list turned out to be a great lineup: GoH Ted Chiang, Special GoH Ian McDonald, Editor GoH Jacob Weisman, Artist GoH Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, Science GoH Sigrid Close, Fan GoH Michael Walsh and Toastmaster Mario Acevedo. Unlike most years, I managed to spend time with, or attend panels featuring every one of the major guests. They proved to be a witty, insightful bunch that brought their A game. Seriously, they all seemed to be running full steam ahead all weekend.
The GoH interview with Weisman–conducted in tag-team fashion by Rick Klaw and Scott Cupp, with color commentary by Bill Crider–was an interesting capsule history of Tachyon Publications, enhanced by a liberal distribution of Crackerjacks. Afterward, I got to speak with Weisman–quite a thoughtful fellow, if a little more low-key than most of the other lunatics frequenting Armadillocon–and was able to discuss a side project I’ve taken on.
