The NASFA Shuttle June-Oct. 2006
The NASFA Shuttle June-Oct. 2006 / Mike Kennedy, c/o North Alabama SF Association, P.O. Box 4857, Huntsville AL 35815-4857 / firstname.lastname@example.org / $1.50@, $10/year / A monthly clubzine whose scope reaches far beyond the Huntsville city limits, The NASFA Shuttle presents the most comprehensive awards news in American fandom and solid reporting on conventions near (like DeepSouthCon) and far (like worldcon). Not only that, but the Space City club also puts on a very enjoyable ongoing convention (Con*stellation) which has had the kindness to host Rosy and myself as Fan Guests. Their breakdown of L.A.Con IV includes both impressions (by editor Kennedy and Gary Shelton) and statistics (on the Hugo voting). (I still can't believe Challenger's strong third place showing.) It even lists the British Fantasy Awards and of course, mourns Bob Tucker. Great group, grand con, fine zine.
