"A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools,"

At DemiCon, we have a tradition of nominating a Ghost of Honor to compliment our Guests of Honor. The Ghost of
Honor title both honors someone whose life has made an important mark on fandom as well as serves as a theme for
some DemiCon events. With this year´s Ghost of Honor being Douglas Adams, you can expect the unusual from DemiCon.
Join us in the "ConSuite at the End of the Universe" and contemplate Life, the Universe and DemiCon.
