When I lived in the Eastern States and became involved in the spec fic community almost ten years ago, I desperately wanted to go to a Swancon. It was, from all accounts, the epitome of the SF Convention in Australia – the friendliest, the most fun, the best… I now live in WA and have been to two Swancons. Due to family commitments, I won’t be attending the full convention, but for a while there, I wasn’t sure I would attend at all. Swancon is supposed to be on the top of the con-heap, not at the bottom because people aren’t safe when they attend. 

So I’m with  ,  ,  ,  , ,   and   and everyone else who is publicly putting themselves out there and saying:

You are not welcome. Don’t come.

Connecting on Linked In

Douglas Van Belle, a repeat offender in the ASIM pages and winner of Best New Talent at this year’s Sir Julius Vogel Awards, is creating a network of speculative fiction affiliates using Linked In. As part of that, I’m making use of my connections to widen the net.
