Annual Con or Bust Auction Ends Sunday!

Hurry up, genre fans! The annual Con or Bust auction ends Sunday February 22nd at 5:00pm (EST)!

The auction is administered by Kate Nepveu under the umbrella of the Carl Brandon Society, a not-for-profit organization. The Society, which is named after fictional African-American fan author Carl Brandon, is dedicated to increasing and ethnic diversity in the SFF community, and holds the auction to help fans of color attend the SFF con of their choosing.
