If you are a libertarian (or other kind of anti-authoritarian), and enjoy
science fiction and fantasy, you can learn about our tastes and get a list
of fun reads from http://lfs.org/awards.shtml. If you like what you see,
visithttp://lfs.org/join.shtml and join to support our work. chris
I don't know what flavor of libertarian I am. Liberal libertarian is an
odd mix. As far as I can tell, the only benefit of membership is to able
to vote. Is that correct? I am supporting the award and nothing else?
(When I was about your age I had an afro too. Wake up in the morning,
scratch your head and that's all the grooming you need.)
