*The Academy of Rentboy Speculative Fiction (ARSF) is
an original name, not associated with any other
academies. Membership is by nomination. Members are
required to have a sense of humor. Founder: K.
Lowachee. Co-Founders: A. Van Dyk, E. Bear. For more
information please email any of the above.
*The Ewan Awards is not affiliated with Ewan McGregor
in any way (darnit). The name was chosen in tribute to
the most famous 'Rentboy' in fiction, Mark Renton of
Trainspotting. Members of the ARSF write original
fiction incorporating angsty, often good-looking boys
in dire circumstances. Our slogan is: "Go beyond the loop."
Okay, it's a gag award. But Karin did a very nice job, don't you think?
