SF Signal Meetup at Chicon7/Worldcon!

Have you ever wondered what makes the gears of SF Signal spin? (Whatever for?) Is SF Signal just the poorly-written online ravings of a group of socially inept and psychotic misfits? (Likely.) Do you want a peek behind the curtain? (Don’t do it!) Or would you like to buy us pie? (Actually, that would go over extremely well!)

If you answered “yes” to any of these question (especially the last one), you’re about to get your chance.

If you are going to Chicon7/Worldcon over Labor Day weekend, or are otherwise in the Chicago area…come meet us at the SF Signal 2012 Worldcon Meetup!

If you have some free time on the afternoon of Saturday, September 1st, come on over to the Corner Bakery and say hello to SF Signal’s editors, contributors and readers. See here for details.

Hope to see you there!

(But in case you can’t make it, you now know where to send the pie. Just sayin’…)
