In The Chair

At Monday night's BASFA meeting, none of the club officers turned up. The meeting turned to me, as the closest thing they had (I'm a former President of the club), and I found myself presiding for the first time in quite a while. This of course gave me both the ability and the incentive to keep the meeting short so we could finish off our Hugo Award discussion nights, although I did let people blather on for an hour or so.

After the meeting we polished off our discussions of the 1939 Retro-Hugo Awards (for works published in 1938), and I'll get them posted as soon as I get the chance to hugo_recommend

Mo Starkey showed off the first physical copy I've seen of the Wizards Tower Press book Airship Shape and Bristol Fashion. We hope to work out a deal to get some of the physical copies for sale out here on the US west coast soon.
