Joyce Scrivner (6/27/95)
- I've interviewed a fan for Dick's history (Floyd Henderson who went to
Canada rather than get drafted), though I haven't written it up yet. I've
got commitments from several others to talk (Jim Young, Ruth Berman, Ken
Fletcher, ... .)
- I've got money from MinnStf for the Redd Bogg's history of Minneapolis
Fantasy Society. (Currently planned to be issued for next Minicon as part
of a two volume Rune publication.)
- I've got tentative plans to reprint the Atom TAFF report. (And I've got
some questions about this: what do you people think about adding some single
paragraphs from friends as a memorial to Atom? what about adding some
photos?) This would be done for LACon next year.
- I've got money and time committed to doing a 'Minneapolis' display for
Intersection this year. (To go along with the Glascow and Dusseldorf
displays). This is currently being worked on.
- I'm working on putting together a series of displays for next year at
LACon on the fan funds. Together with this would be a binder(s) containing
extant fan fund reports for people to read/look through.
- And there is the Minicon thing, ... . (I'd rather wait until other
people talk about this, first, okay?)
