Today we saw the launch of a cause that’s near and dear to the heart of all Inkpunks: the World SF Travel Fund, a peer-backed fund that will allow international members of the SF community to come to where the cons are. From the website:
A combination of genre professionals and fans from the international scene and the United States have gathered together to create the World SF Travel Fund. The fund has been set up to enable one international person involved in science fiction, fantasy or horror to travel to a major genre event.
The first recipient of the fund is genre blogger and activist Charles Tan, from the Philippines.
Charles is a friend of the Inkpunks and we are stoked out of our collective gourd at the prospect of seeing him in October. Charles works tirelessly to promote World SF, and especially Philippine SF.
We hope that you’ll join us in the effort to bring him to the U.S. this year. Every little bit helps.
