L. Timmel Duchamp has written a little illustrated summary of this year's edition, which included happy reunions and Aqueduct author readings. Much fun was had, desserts eaten, panels attended, and books sold.
It was great to see many of you there, and we hope that next year's 40th edition (no less) will again bear witness to the ongoing hard work of all con committee members, authors, fans, publishers, and more who firmly believe in the need for diversity in sf/f.

The WisCon Chronicles vol. 10
Call for Materials

 
We are delighted that Margaret McBride will be editing this year's WisCon Chronicles. Contact details and her full call for materials for this volume, which will have a special focus on social justice, is available on our blog. Read a fragment below:

"I am particularly interested in how science fiction is addressing social justice, especially the idea that environmental programs need to include equality for women and minorities. Essays examining the fiction of any past guest of honor at WisCon or Tiptree Award winner or any science fiction that looks at environmental concerns or diversity issues would be appropriate, also. 2016 will be the 40th year for WisCon, so personal memories from guests of honor, committee members, and also people new or long-time to WisCon will be considered, even if not linked directly to social justice issues."

"The Weave, from the feminist science fiction publisher Aqueduct Press, brings us a first-contact story in which humans, seeking to exploit the much-needed resources of a system inhabited by creatures they assume are "primitive" and defenseless, discover their mistake the hard way."
Strange Horizons interview with Jennifer Marie Brissett
