News Blackout Apology

I apologize to all those who come to this site looking for news for now having anything up in a timely manner for the past week. Unfortunately, as I was vice-chairing Chicon 7, the 70th World Science Fiction Convention, I didn’t have the time (or, frankly, the internet access) to make my usual updates. I will be trying to post news from the last week from Worldcon, Dragon*Con, PAX, and other sources over the next day or two. My apologies for any inconvenience. -Steven H Silver
