As an aside, the above is the 500th post on the SFFANZ News service. It is a nice milestone, but we would like to post lots more. If it relates to SF or Fantasy in New Zealand even peripherally then we would like to hear about it. Don’t assume that we already know. If it isn’t posted here, then we need to know about it. Convention news, book launch events, readings, meetings, talks, awards, workshops – you get the idea. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com – you don’t need to write the article (unless you want to) – just send us a link and we will take it from there.
