Thanks very much to our contributors, and to Steven Silver for passing out some copies at Windycon.

MidFanzine #6 is planned to be about convention mascots and other aspects of convention identity and marketing.

MidFanzine #6 is accepting submissions through June 30, 2011.

Submissions should be sent via email to editor@midfan.org. These will go to editor Anne Gray. If you would rather write to a postal address, that would be to Anne at 2726 Sagebrush Circle #203, Ann Arbor, MI 48103.
Lloyd Penney has already sent me a letter of comment for MidFanzine 5, which included a list of upcoming events local to him that I will add to the Midwest Science Fiction Convention Calendar. Since much of the list will be out of date by the time the next midfanzine is published next year, I'll also share it here.
