Re-entry from Readercon has been rough this year: lots of catching up to do at work and I’ve got a delightful case of con crud so everything is taking twice as long as it really should. So there’s a handful of links from me and then the rest are reader submissions (yay, reader submissions!).

- From Lilysea:
