A Reminder to SFWAns
Jim Macdonald reminds all SFWAns that their ballots for officer elections must be received by the 19th of April, which means that sending in the mail, oh, NOW, might be a good idea. Also, it might be a good idea to stick another stamp on the envelope, because the ballot package is just on the weight border of needing another one.
I concur with both of these. This election is actually important, folks, for reasons I’ve already amply essayed previously. It’d be a shame to have SFWA led by an incompetent because the membership couldn’t rouse itself to vote (if it were to be led by an incompetent because people roused themselves to vote, and voted for the incompetent, that would be a shame, too, but I sincerely believe that won’t be the case).
Those of you who aren’t SFWA members can still light votive candles, chuck pennies into fountains, cross your fingers and otherwise hope that SFWAns get their ballots in and make the right choices overall. Consider it your very easy duty to science fiction literature.
