For the Hugo Awards, of course.

If you are a member of last year's Chicon, this year's LoneStarCon, or next years Loncon, you are entitled to submit a nomination ballot for the Hugo Awards. One of which is for Best Fanzine.

Shameless plug:

If you read and enjoy Yipe!, I hope you will consider it during your nominating process.

I almost forgot... I did manage to get the holiday issue of Yipe! published before midnight on New Year's eve.

It's a light and fluffy issue featuring holiday tees (courtesy of Chris Garcia), holiday sweaters (courtesy of me) and the return of our Letters page.

Onward into the postapocalyptic future!

Yes, it's true -- after almost a year, Yipe has been resuscitated and returns just in time for Halloween with Reanimated: Cocktails vs Zombies.  Debbie and Linda go commando for pink drinks, Chris finds the perfect Cocktail Suit, Kevin is all dressed up with nowhere to drink as he rolls his robot bartender all over town, and Jerry Thrills us all with the brain-eating tale of her life as a Zombie.


This is my first issue as the sole editor of Yipe, and I'm pretty happy with it. Enjoy!

I haven't done much in the way of videogaming for years (truth: I remember the Magnavox Odyssey, and Pong, and played lots of Atari 2600 games at my godparents' house), nor costumed from them.

I do, however, write for a costuming magazine (YIPE! if you've somehow missed that fact over the last 3 years) and am working on a feature about video game costumes and/or costuming at videogame events.

Anyone out there in LJ-land have something (photos, anecdotes, tales of excitement and wonder -- or woe and misery) to share? Deadlines are looming [cue ominous 8-bit music]

Actually, there are TWO!

Our lamentably delayed May issue, "International Travelogue Issue", and our June costume wedding special, "Unbridaled", are now both available for free download from www.yipezine.com !

Kids make their wishlists without any care for how realistic said hopes are given socioeconomic trends and their tax bracket. It doesn’t matter if they get a jet pack or a ray gun or a nuclear-powered arm cannon. The important thing is, for a brief moment, they think they might.

Even if it’s just for a fleeting moment, a kid’s mind opens up to the vast universe around them. Maybe it’s possible for a decrepit, morbidly obese man to harness a team of faster-than-light ruminants to distribute roughly 18 billion presents across the entire globe in less than 12 hours.

Sure, Kevin wants a Jet Pack, Ms.Sheriff wants a Ray Gun, I want the power to crush skulls between my cruel digits, and Mette wants everything all at once… but are we going to get them?
Does it matter, as long as we WANT them in the first place?

YIPE! Volume 2, Issue 12, “All I Want…,” is now available for free download from http://www.yipezine.com

Volume 3 is due out in 2011. Oh, is it 2011 NOW? If you have something to submit (or want to send a letter of comment), contact us at editors (at) yipezine.com before we run out of year!







P.S. The December 2010 issue (2.12) is actually the 16th issue of Yipe! magazine since we started publication in October of 2009. To those kind souls who thought us worthy of Hugo nomination last year, we are now actually *eligible* for nomination, which we were not last year.

Enjoy!

Our first BayCon tale comes from our good friend Leo Schwab, who writes of his out of costume life as a man everyone accuses of being in costume. The awkwardness is reinforced by Joanne Pelaschier’s take on her first ever outing to the San Francisco Bay Area’s… um… BayConiest… convention?
Then, right on schedule, España gives the Masquerade system an atomic wedgie and steals its lunch money. Longtime reader and first-time contributor Deborah Bretschneider follows with the tale of “Eat the Guests”, BayCon’s first attempt at a zombiewalk… or zombie sit, as the case may be.
And, because we’re all a bunch of selfish bastards who can’t stop talking about ourselves for one instant, Mette puts us back on track with 10 questions for Cosplay goddess and BayCon regular Karisu.
YIPE! Volume 2, Issue 6, “We’ll Take It In A Little,” is now available for download at

The March issue of Yipe! ("Our Car is Running Over") is now available for free download from http://www.yipezine.com

Columns by Jason Schachat, [livejournal.com profile] cmdrsuzdal, a Gallifrey One review by [livejournal.com profile] foxmoor, an article about judging masquerades by [livejournal.com profile] iamradar and buckets of photos.

Unfortunately due to procrastination and untimely interocitor failure, my monthly column was corrupted in this issue. We left it in as a warning against over-dependence on alien technology.

Download and Enjoy!
