Broadening the community and conversation

This weekend Mary Robinette Kowal invited people to converse with her about being fans of science fiction and fantasy. To discuss what this means to us.

She offered to pay for Supporting Memberships to Worldcon for those who wanted to participate but could not afford to do so. No strings attached — vote however you want in the Hugos.

A number of other folks pitched in to buy memberships for people.

Go, check it out.

This is what fandom looks like. All of our varied, cat-herding, joyous, misanthropic, insular, welcoming, pedantic, incoherent glory.

Good for you, fandom.

And thank you, Mary.
