A Holiday For SF/Fantasy Writers!

 For those of you who believe that we don't have enough holidays on our calendars, authors Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, who together have created the wonderful Liaden Universe (and the excellent books set therein), have declared June 23rd to be Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Day!

Here's the link to Sharon's blog explaining a bit about how this declaration of holiday came to pass:  http://rolanni.livejournal.com/439604.html

Personally, I think it's a great idea and I look forward to celebrating Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Day by writing some fantasy, which, I have to admit, is just what I would be doing on a Tuesday in June anyway.  But hey!  Maybe I'll get some presents....

This has been making the rounds. I think it's a great idea.

But has Hallmark done anything with it yet? That's the true test of whether it's catching on...

I like it! Why not have our very own day when we celebrate the bizarre stuff that comes forth from our fertile imaginations?

Hallmark might not get on the stick, but if we make one of the late shows or a political party talks it up (or down), then we're in.

Yes! I think we should get the GOP to attack the idea, and us, and everything we stand for. That's probably the quickest path to success.
