Hi, Short and sweet. As of about four days ago the SFWA has announced that it will consider allowing some self published authors join its ranks as members. They're calling for submissions / comments on the proposal - and on the criteria for indies to join. Now I'm not going to tell you whther I think you should say yea or nay - completely up to you. But I do think that since this will be an important issue to many, you should take the chance to read the post and comment if you want. Link's here: Home | Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America Cheers, and as always - be good or don't get caught! Greg.
