    I disagree.

    I believe SFWA is completely in charge of both John Scalzi AND Cat’s hair color.

    But have you ever noticed that if you take off WSFS’s glasses and mess up its hair just so, it looks uncannily like the SFWA?

    Also not to be confused with the New South Wales Fire Brigade the increasingly doomed ShockWaveFlash file format, being in some way Safe For Work, or the Southwestern Finance Association – each of whom are, in various ways, responsible for the Hugo Awards.

    However, SFWA is responsible for its vowel ambiguity! Is it Sefwa, Sifwa, Sufwa….?
