Last Drink Bird Head Award Winners!

(Tempest and Jetse, looking toward the future)

A little late since every minute of the World Fantasy Con has been filled with some commitment, here are the winners of the Last Drink Bird Head Awards and a few photos from the party. More photos later. The finalist list was posted earlier on my blog.
