Today we especially recommend Miriam's latest blog post, "Coming out as a Fan," in which she confesses that she has attended sci-fi Cons and "worn Vulcan ears." The shame! The horror! It's all right there, folks, along with her paean to Cons as "modern-day rituals of connectivity." As she writes,
In the end, being a sci-fi fan means acknowledging that our lives on Earth are also situated against the vastness of space, and in the vastness of imagined possibilities that may or may not play out in the future. Stepping into the fan world means you embrace the bigger and wilder perspectives that may help you deal with what’s in front of you.
