Recent conventions with awesome looking program items included Diversicon and Nine Worlds. Catherine Lundoff has two different Diversiconposts! I don't have any Nine Worlds posts to share, but if you were there and want to write in about your experience, I'd love to hear all about it.
I also wanted to say congratulations to all the World Fantasy Award nominees! Awesome to see N.K. Jemisin, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Karin Tidbeck, Charles Tan, Kaaron Warren, Meghan McCarron, and L. Timmel Duchamp on the ballot.
