A Ridiculously Random Recap! Post-ASC

Ah, the Ridiculously Random Recap!  Why the name?  Because it's a recap.  And it's random (ridiculously so).  There is no rhyme, reason or rationale, reference its recurring release.  Also, alliterations are almost always adored by able, yet addled daemons!

We have a few things to wrap-up post-ASC, in case you missed it on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram ...etc and elsewhere!

Welcome to Issue 5!  This the after-con edition! We've been recovering con-zombies, so it's taken us a while to get back to our regular (non) schedule.  We figure that once we get the con madness out of our systems, we'll be humming along as usual!  In this issue, we are covering from the 4th of September 2015, through today.  We'll also have a look ahead of what is going on in the All Souls Universe from today and beyond!  Deborah Harkness events will be listed on the bottom of this post.

•  Seems like everyone is shaking the con-zombie off of themselves, so there's been a little lull in activity in the fandom!  However, it's read-along season!
  1. Ashmole782 & The All Souls Podcast both promise read-along like activity in the near future! They both have busy operations with other fandoms, so patience is in order.   Keep an eye out!  We have one going in The All Souls Gathering. We are sure others are going on in other segments of this fandom!  Check your favorite AST haunts!

  • AllSoulsCon pass-holders: Video of ASC is now available for ASC ticket holders;  ASC pass-holders check your emails! Also, the producers asked us to remind our audience who happen to be recipients of the email, to please refrain from sharing the information or email with non pass-holders!  The live-stream turned out to have been illegally shared by more than a few people, thus taking money from the foundation for whom AllSoulsCon was raising money - The Bodley's American Friends.  It's not cool; it's stealing.  Please don't be that person!  The recorded live-stream will be available as an on-demand rental for non-ticket holders very soon!
