The Forbidden Newsletter
I take considerable interest in at-con newsletters, on account of having edited BayCon, SiliCon, and OryCon newsletters some years ago. And I try to produce material for at-con newsletters, too, as I know how difficult it sometimes can be to fill things with news of the proper length. So I always pick up the at-con newsletters as soon as I can. Late on Monday at BayCon, I was rather surprised when convention staff members came around picking up all copies of issue 7 they could get their hands on, saying that they'd been instructed to retrieve the entire run. I declined to give up my two copies.
I have read the issue in question, and I still can't figure out what triggered a recall. My only concern with it was that it was pretty lightweight, especially when I had turned in several real-news stories the previous day and even one pre-con about the BASFA meeting happening on Monday evening. None of those items made the 'zine while there were full-page features on the FGoH and Toastmistress.
Did anyone else who managed to read a copy of the Forbidden Issue 7 figure out what it was that incurred the Wrath of Con? Current Mood: puzzled
