Picofarad #17

While I quite dug the first issue of this I read, and thought it was an interesting view into a fandom I’m not really involved with, this issue was pretty much just more of the same, and so didn’t interest me as much.

There’s con reports from a gaming con and a scifi con, there’s some reviews, there’s the pages and pages of upcoming cons (this still kind of blows my mind). I guess while last time I was just kind of amazed that something like this existed at all, this time I was perhaps able to examine the flaws more closely. The con reports seem to talk about a lot of negative aspects of the events, seemingly without creating any solutions, and the letters are just so bizarre. They seem more like personal correspondence than anything you’d want published in a fanzine.
