Con report

During a recent vacation I was able to attend the Necromicon which was held in Tampa. Necromicon's guests of honor were Ben Bova and Terry Pratchett. The convention provided activities for people with a variety of interests. Traditional convention programming was mixed with with an active gaming scheduale. The dealers' room had heavy emphasis on gaming. There was a Doctor Who presence at the convention. The Suncoast Time Council had a table. WUSF-TV, the Tampa PBS station airs Doctor Who regularly. The club had brought a model TARDIS and the first issue of their newsletter.[1]

The report misspells the name of the convention throughout.
