The event I most enjoyed at Arisia this year was the awards ceremony for The Carl Brandon Society, mostly because of the awesome readings from the awesome winning books. You can check out their blog here. Arisia convention chair Crystal Huff arranged for an official certificate from the city of Boston to be presented to […]
