Bucconeer (also FanHistoriCon 8) was the 1998 Worldcon held August 5-9 at the Baltimore Convention Center, Lord Baltimore Hilton Towers, Marriott Harbor Place, and The Holiday Inn Omni Inner Harbor. Gohs: C. J. Cherryh, Stanley Schmidt, Michael Whelan, and J. Michael Straczynski (did not attend). FGoH: Milton A. Rothman. Charles Sheffield was Toastmaster. Chairman: Peggy Rae Pavlat.

Bucconeer was the second Worldcon held in Baltimore, following the 1983 Worldcon Constellation. However, the committee chose not call the convention Constellation II, which might have been expected under common Worldcon naming conventions, due to the desire to disassociate the 1998 Worldcon from the controversy surrounding the Constellation Bankruptcy.

Bids: Baltimore in '98, Boston in '98, New York in '98. See 1998 Site Selection results.
