Levy Haskell, Lydia Nickerson, Patrick Nielsen Hayden, Teresa Nielsen Hayden, and Geri Sullivan. This was the first of the deliberately scaled-back Minicons and attendance was 1360 pre-registered and 1525 total.

One of the convention's publications -- the Minicon 34 Restaurant Guide by Karen Cooper and Bruce Schneier (Rune Press, 1999) was nominated for the 2000 Best Related Book Hugo!
