AMAZING NEWS: 2-26-2017

Exo planets, TAFF race, industry warnings, award lists and lift offs (and landings!)

SPECIAL NOTE:  There’s a TAFF race on (Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund) and one of the candidates is an Amazing Stories contributor – John Purcell.  Based on that alone, Amazing Stories is endorsing John for this race.  There are a lot of other reasons as well to do so, not the least of which is John’s publication of your publisher’s rant in Shitgibbon: The Ranthology. John is also a talented writer and fanzine publisher, plus, I think he plays guitar.  You can read John’s candidacy statement here and here.  You can learn about all of the candidates here and you can obtain a ballot here.
