Gene Wolfe will be the Special Guest of Honor at 2006's Balticon 40, a science-fiction convention in Baltimore. The dates are May 26 - 29. Neil Gaiman is also Guest of Honor.

Sounds like fun. My first con with Wolfe was at when the World's was at Balticon.

Gene Wolfe News and Rumors Logged by Paul Duggan

We believe that we invent symbols. The truth is that they invent us; we are their creatures, shaped by their hard, defining edges. When soldiers take their oath they are given a coin, an asimi stamped with the profile of the Autarch. Their acceptance of that coin is their acceptance of the special duties and burdens of military life--they are soldiers from that moment, though they may know nothing of the management of arms. I did not know that then, but it is a profound mistake to believe that we must know of such things to be influenced by them, and in fact to believe so is to believe in the most debased and superstitious kind of magic. The would-be sorcerer alone has faith in the efficacy of pure knowledge; rational people know that things act of themselves or not at all.
The Shadow of the Torturer, Gene Wolfe.
