Nerd Queen Journal: Fascinating…

We’re already getting close to the 20th post about the NQJ. But this one’s a little bit dour, because though there were some fabulous times at Shore Leave 40, as much as I hate to say this, the 40th year of the summer con was a disaster. Over the entire weekend, my father was exhausted […]
