Let's say you'd be organising a science fiction/fantasy/horror convention. Pretend you are, this is purely hypotetical. And you'd have some Guests of Honours ready. Let's make them all male. And let's pretend that in order to give your con some sort of aspect of gender equality, you'd want to add a Guest (or two) that are female. Who'd be on top of your list?
And let's continue this game furthermore: say you'd be organising this con in Finland and you'd be advised not to bring back old GoH's. New would be the idea, not necessarily age-wise. And one more thing: in order to keep a well balanced budget, that GoH (or two) would have to be either European or already in Europe for reasonably priced travel expenses.
Now, in this completely hypotetical situation, who would You choose?
I'm now off to Hämeenlinna.
