Any Sanditon residents still following me? It's been a while, but I want you all to know that it was YOUR enthusiasm in building the shared reality of our little beach town that inspired my pitch for this year's Nebula Awards ceremony. 1/?

Use #airshipnebula to tag your posts, and know that you are part of what made a new shared reality possible.

Thank you, and enjoy your flight. :)
