To assist, Storybundle (and Cheeky Frawg Publishing) is offering a Weird Fiction set of ebooks and will donate half the proceeds to our bid.
The goal is to send Finns to the 2015 Worldcon in Spokane, WA next summer. In order to get sufficient candy, liquor, and fun to Sasquan next August, we need YOUR HELP. Buying your own copy of the Weird Fiction Storybundle is a great way to show your support, available now until December 24th.
As we say in Finland, "Kiitos!"
