Hey look, another news post already!
- Like us, Tom Smith has his website back together.
- GAFilk happened last weekend. Anybody want to write a con report?
- Norwescon has gone through a couple of concerts leads this year – currently it’s back in the hands of their Special Events manager, Alan Bond. Wish him luck. Daytime programming is in the very good hands of Jen Kilmer.
