This year's Global Team has begun planning early - and so have we. (Look for an announcement on the date coming in the next few weeks!)
The contest for the artwork to represent CSTS 2012 is now open for voting. Voting is open to anyone who is a member of the CSTS forums - you don't have to be an organiser or even on the committee; you just have to register. When you're voting, please keep in mind what the artwork will look like on a t-shirt (would you want to wear it?); whether you think it will catch the eye of people who may not know about CSTS and make them curious enough to explore further; and how well local event information will fit on the poster without losing the essence of the poster.Contest ends at 11:59 pm PST, on November 1st. You can only vote once so think about it and then vote before the deadline and we will have lovely shiny t-shirts to order early next year!
In the meantime, while you're waiting for further news, check out more webseries: the very funny Husbands, by Whedon writer Jane Espenson ("Shindig") and Brad Bell/Cheeks about two men who wake up married in Las Vegas after celebrating the Marriage Equality bill. (Obviously set slightly in the future.) It is a very romantic - and funny - love story in 11 episodes, at least for season one. It's not graphic and there is no nudity but there are some displays of affection, of course, as there would be in any true romance.
For action fantasy, try Dragon Age: Redemption, written and starring Felicia Day (Buffy, Dr. Horrible,The Guild). It has just launched (second episode was posted this week). If you are a gamer, the game is out now, also 'starring' Felicia Day.
