  26. Jon says:

    > Section 3.2.4 of the WSFS constitution.

    3.2.6, I think

    • Kevin says:

      Nope. In the 2013 WSFS Constitution (effective this year, as of end of 2013 Worldcon), it says:

      3.2.4: Works appearing in a series are eligible as individual works, but the series as a whole is not eligible. However, a work appearing in a number of parts shall be eligible for the year of the final part.

      Section 3.2.6 has to do with not including commercials or other extraneous matter in dramatic presentations.

      ETA: Corrected link to copy of current (as of end of 2013 Worldcon) WSFS Constitution. There appears to be a glitch in the wsfs.org web site, but the current constitution is also on the Loncon 3 site.

  29. The irony of Vox Day’s nomination after his expulsion from the SFWA should not be overstated. And great for him! “Opera Vita Aertna” is excellent, one of the best novelettes I’ve read in years.
