The piece is "Banquet Remark(s)" and it reads like Bob Bloch - "Friends - and Dr. Asimov: Perhaps I shouldn’t have said that. After all, I’m not here to insult Isaac Asimov ...even if that were possible. On the contrary, I have a very high opinion of Asimov...though I know him well. Men like Isaac Asimov do not pass our way very often...and for this we should be grateful."
--First Fandom Publications. Added 3 items: From 1959, two versions of Lynn Hickman's announcement of the formation of First Fandom as an organization. Very cool. From 1966, we have a financial statement. It has a signature, but I can't make out who signed it. Can anyone decipher it? If so, let me know and I'll put the name of the originator on the index page.

YouTube: A choice addition today (although they are all choice) - an audio recording of the 1969 GoH speech given by Jack Gaughan at Boskone. The talk is entertaining, and it is so very clear that Jack is among his friends in his chosen place. From the YouTube writeup: " both entertaining and thoughtful, interspersed with sharply witty comments. He quotes from Leonardo Da Vinci, and teases his friends, some in the room, including Isaac Asimov, Ed Emsh and Donald Wollheim. He starts with a recounting of the problems faced by female artists like his wife, Phoebe. He tells anecdotes about his experiences as an illustrator, teases Lester del Rey, and compares the lives of artists today to the lives of artists 500 years ago. Jack is frank about his own feelings on science fiction and science fiction illustration. It's chatty, low key, entertaining and comfortable and a marvellous window into an important figure in the field, lost far too soon...Thanks to the New England Science Fiction Society (NESFA) and Rick Kovalcik for providing the recording. Thanks to Andrew Porter for providing photos and to Dr. Gandalf for digitization."

Fanzines Added: Unless otherwise noted, all scans are by Joe Siclari.
--Fanthologies, Collections and Festschrifts. Added 1 item: Rob Hansen's 1987 collection of recent British fanwriting, "Now Read On".
--First Fandom Publications. Added 5 issues of Dave Kyle's "First Fandom News Letter", from 1968-1976.

--G2, Joe Gibson. Added 17 issues from 1963-1966: V3#2-12, V4#1, V4#4, V4#6, V4#9, V5#2, and V5#10.
--High Points, Elsie Wollheim. Added #2 of this 1945 zine. Since Pavlat-Evans only lists #1, I feel as if we have overachieved.
--Improbable, Vowen Clark. Added 2 issues of this new-to-us title from the 1950s. From #3 - "This brings up a pet peeve of mine. Quite a bit of material has been written, telling just how unfair, rude, discouraging, vicious, and just generally ornery those legend-shrouded figures, known only as BNFs, can be. This is hogwash...pure, unadulterated and unabridged junk. Most of this propaganda is written by neos who have received bad reviews of their pride-and-joy zines or by neos who aspire to join the BNFs by criticising them." There was a review by Bob Tucker in that issue along with material from Guy Terwilleger.
--Metaphysical Review, Bruce Gillespie. Added 4 issues: #2-4 (Nov 84- Jul 85) and #9 (Aug 86). Issue 4 has Don Ashby's story of "The Magic Pudding Club" circa 1975.

--PSFS News. Added 10 newsletters of recent vintage. Nathan Lilly - Feb-Nov 2003; Jenna Lynn Binder - May-Aug 2004. I said they were of recent vintage, however, the kids born at the beginning of the run I put up today are now eligible to vote in the U.S.
--Southern Fandom Confederation Publications. Added 2 items: P.L. Caruthers-Montgomery: SFC Bulletin V4#5 (Jul 89); and Tom Feller: SFC Bulletin V6#9 (Jun 97).

--Skyrack, Ron Bennett newszine. Added 21 issues and 2 supplements to complete the run!: #10 (Dec 59), #16 (Apr 60), #32A (May 61), #33 (Jun 61), #66-67 (Apr-May 64), #71 (Oct 64), #73-77 (Dec 64-Apr 65), #79-82A (May-Aug 65), #86 (Feb 66), #90 (Jun 66), and #92-95 (Sep 66-May 68).

We are delighted to report that was given the 2020 FAAn Award for Best Online Achievement at the Sunday, March 28, virtual award Zoom call. Many thanks to all who provided us with this most excellent egoboo!

YouTube: Added Part 2 of the Zoom talk by Jim and Greg Benford is now online. From the YouTube writeup: "Jim and Greg Benford continue with their history in science fiction and fandom. They discuss fandom at UCLJ (now UCSD), travelling ghiants, and the talented writers of the Bay Area. There are stories of famous names, from Poul Anderson and Robert Silverberg to Edward Teller, Elon Musk, Martin Rees and Stephen Hawking. The relationship of science fiction to technical advances in weaponry is discussed, and regional differences in fandom. The anecdotes shine, and Greg tells a particularly fine tale about Buzz Aldrin, almost the first man on the moon. To cap it off, there's the Void Boys song, and a little of its history including some comments by Ted White."

Fanzines Added: Unless otherwise noted, all scans are by Joe Siclari.

YouTube:  - Today was the Fan History zoom with Jim and Greg Benford. I've uploaded Part 1 to YouTube (there'll be one more part).

There are anecdotes about well known fans and writers, about the Texas fan community of the day, and early science fiction conventions.
