A TAFF Guide to Beer, edited by Claire Brialey and Mark Plummer, features several pieces of beer-related fan writing by Geri Sullivan, and also includes pieces from each of the other candidates in this year's TAFF race, as well as beer-related excerpts from writings by nearly 3 dozen past TAFF winners. It's being published in celebration of this year's TAFF race.



Welcome to the newsletter specifically oriented towards the Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund. Your current TAFF Administrators Anna Raftery (Europe) and John Purcell (North America) happily present this publication to the world of science fiction fandom.

This newsletter is designed to keep fans apprised of developments in not only each year’s races—and the 2018 East to West TAFF Race has now concluded with Johan Anglemark as the delegate—but also in any changes being made to hopefully streamline the nominating and voting process, and also to provide the eventual winners ample time to prepare for their journeys.
