Committee Reports


Patrick Rothfus is doing a book-signing in Boston in a couple of weeks!

16 March at 18:00 Northeastern University Bookstore Snell Library 360 Huntington Ave. 4 Ell Hall, Boston, MA 02115

He wrote The Name of the Wind and just came out with a sequel, The Fear of Fools. We invited him to come and visit MITSFS while he's in town; maybe he'll even come?


Bluebellcomm did work! Bluebellcomm should do more work!


There will be a Hasslecomm party in the library tomorrow (Saturday) from 12:00 to 18:00. People should come, especially the prentii!


The Hasslecomm party will count as Inventory make-up!


We have a person who wants to come in to look at the fanzine collection for research they're doing on the history of Fandom. They're coming tomorrow!


We have a permanent key to our poster cabinet!


Old Business

Most of the people here are old.



New Business

In the present, there are a lot of committee reports.

In the present, the ten-day is still going on. There are mind-quakes!

There's a new restaurant in Cambridge. There are details, but no one showed the Onseck. Apparently it's called "Felonius Monkfish", but they don't serve monkfish.


Future Business
