Just a couple of these things, & it pays for itself. For example, the Fiction River anthology alone [nearly 800 pages!] is 8.00 on Kindle. The Uncollected Anthology Year One [490 pages] is only available as a $24 paperback. Afaik, this is the only e-book edition. The Grayson trilogy is excellent, romance-with-woo-woo fun; the Rusch Diving series has great buzz. The Faerie Summer is a 20-book e-book set.

Throw in the others, & that's a lot at an excellent deal. Squee!

filkferengi, off to buy it now

VividCon Baking Team: feed the con!

People of VividCon! Once again, the con is crowdsourcing the con suite baked goods, and we need your help.

Those of you who have attended VividCon in the past will recall that our con suite abounds not only with soda, candy, and other store-bought items but with delicious homemade baked goods. We try to provide a wide range of treats to meet as many dietary needs as possible, including vegan, dairy free, gluten free, nut free, and diabetic-friendly options.

For the first decade-plus of the con's history, we had dedicated bakers who supplied all the homemade baked goods. In more recent years, we've relied on a Many Hands Make Light Work approach: several people bake something at home and bring it with them, and together we feed the con!

The con can help defray ingredient costs and toss in one extra copy of the con DVD for each baking team member. The best compensation, of course, will be overhearing people talk about how delicious your contribution is.

If you think you could make a couple of loaves of your favorite vegan banana bread or a double batch of rice krispie treats, chocolate chip bar cookies, or that intriguing gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipe you've been meaning to try, please comment on this entry (comments are screened) or email me directly at heresluck at gmail dot com. We'll use a shared Google spreadsheet to coordinate who's bringing what and check that we're accommodating as many dietary restrictions as we can.

Thanks in advance for considering whether you can fit a container of cookies into your luggage! ♥

Fanlore is recruiting gardeners to help us with Fanlore!

Do you like writing about fandom? Gardeners are editors who work on Fanlore and take additional responsibilities regarding the wiki’s maintenance. In addition to adding content themselves, they make sure text isn’t deleted indiscriminately and tidy up after other editors, to help new content better fit the wiki’s guidelines. They can also participate in internal discussions about Fanlore events, policies, and documentation. No technical experience is required—you just need to know and love Fanlore, both as a user and an editor. If that sounds like you, come and join us!

Apply on the volunteering page! Applications are due 19 July 23:59 UTC

Five Things an OTW Volunteer Said


"I’ve used fanfic archives, Yahoo Groups, LiveJournal, Fanfiction.net, AO3, and tumblr among others so I know just how important what OTW does is for fandom. I’ve seen the good (even great), bad, and ugly that can from fandom and I still keep coming back for more. I can’t get enough of seeing and reading other fans’ passion for the things that I love."

In Five Things, graphics volunteer Rachel G discusses what she creates for the OTW and what she likes about the results: https://goo.gl/UgBcsY
