Erin Underwood wins the 2020 DUFF

The Down Under Fan Fund announced that Erin Underwood has won the Down Under Fan Fund race and will become the new North American Administrator to the fund. She won an outright majority on the first ballot.

A quote from the news release: With CoNZealand being a virtual Worldcon this year and Covid-19, Erin will not be traveling to New Zealand this year, but hopes to travel to Australasia in the DUFF tradition in 2021, health and world events permitting.

The NESFA Clubhouse is closed for now.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NESFA has closed down access to the clubhouse for now. We’ll consider reopening and restarting our regular Wednesday evening get-togethers, game & media days, and reading & writing groups when the authorities allow moderate-sized gatherings. NESFA Business and Boskone Meetings will continue online at least until somewhat larger gatherings are allowed. 


If you have a book borrowed from our Library, please email library[at]nesfa.org to be informed when we are open again to return your books.
