Welcome to This Week in Fandom, the OTW’s roundup of things which are happening! Apologies for our mini hiatus. We’re back now, and
we’re ready to rock and roll. But before we start, happy 87th birthday to William Shatner! To celebrate, fans on Twitter had some fun with the #AddShatnerToAnything hashtag. Which is your favourite?
A bit of sad news recently. Author and life-long fan Karen Anderson has passed away. As Locus Magazine reports, she was 85 years old, and she published numerous science fiction works both on her own and co-authored with her husband, Poul Anderson. She helped coin the term filk, and she was inducted into the Filk Hall of Fame in 2003.
