  1. Woot! Thanks Worldcon 75.

    Mike, the link to the merch page is throwing a 404 error. Is there a typo or is the page just down right now?

  2. That’s a really nice wrap-up report. I don’t remember any recent Worldcons doing something that extensive.

    ULTRAGOTHA, the link works for me — it’s probably just getting clicked on by a lot of people at the moment.

  3. Very happy they got this done. Everybody must have been incredibly tired after the con. I’ll bet there are huge sighs of relief right now, especially from Colette.

  4. Aw geez, I missed the first 20 minutes of the ceremony while I was looking for the Chinese live feed, and none of it is in the video, either. It just starts at Fan Writer, missing Fan Artist and all of the preliminary introductions and acknowledgments. 🙁

    I’m glad that almost all the finalists and winners have video of their presentations as a keepake, though.
