LoC on John's Nippon report [Aug. 4th, 2008|04:21 pm]
sjhtn2007
On the back of a postcard dated May 20 2008 Randy Byers nicely printed the following Letter of Comment (LoC).

"Dear John -

"Just wanted to let you know that I read your piece on Nippon 2007 in FILE 770 and thought it was utterly terrific. I was particularly moved by your moment of shared glory at the SFFY Hugos, but I was deeply impressed in general by your effectiveness as a bridge between cultures. It was sensawunda - inspiring to see the Japanese Worldcon through your eyes."

See "The Worldcon I Saw" by John Hertz in File 770 issue 152 available at efanzines.

Written on the back of the envelope containing issues 698 through 702 of Vanamonde and mailed Sept. 25 from Los Angeles:

Success! [Jul. 29th, 2007|07:20 pm]

[mood |excitedexcited]

Hurray. Huzzah. HANA is a success.

John will arrive in Japan the first day of the Worldcon and return to Los Angeles 10 days later.

Thanks go to John's friends and supporters on both sides of the Pacific Ocean.

Donations, an online auction, and an auction during Corflu Quire, raised more than $2,200. In addition, John's airplane ticket was purchased with donated air miles.

John's post-Worldcon goal is to spend as much time as possible with local fans.

BeaABOHEMA 3, March 1968 includes a Piers Anthony article, “The Contest: A Confession” (three pages), and the first installment of his column, “Babble” (seven pages). BeABOHEMA 5, August 1969 includes Anthony’s “Babble” column (12 pages) plus a near-seven-page-long letter beginning “Dean Koontz’s column: I’m almost getting to like Dean, though I wouldn’t stoop so far as to kiss him. Might make him pregnant, you know. But I wonder at his reasoning.” The installment of Koontz’s SF movie column titled “Way Station” runs three pages in this issue.

L2 - [1] - BEABOHEMA 3, March 1968, 80 pages, mimeo. Country of Publication: USA. Edited and copyright by Francis G. Lunney.
Cover by Jim McLeod. Back cover by Robert E. Gilbert. Beabohema began picking up speed with its third issue. “The Contest: A Confession” begins “In late 1962 I decided to end it all. All work, that is; I packed my wife off to earn my living, while I stayed home and wrote science fiction. The same time that I made my first sale, I joined a fan organization called NFFF (I was once informed the initials stood for National Funny Farm Federation), so my indoctrination as a neo-writer and neo-fan were simultaneous.” This a great True or False SF writer question: Piers Anthony was a member of the N3F. Answer: True. And there is more Anthony in BAB 3: a column titled Babble. Also the first installment of Leo P. Kelly’s column; an article by sometime Anthony novel collaborator Robert E. Margroff, co-writer with Anthony of The Ring; “First Impressions of Fandom” by Dale A. Goble, Jr.,; “Fandom’s Vocal Point,” fanzine reviews by Al Snider; Seth Dogramajian’s Bull Artist column which begins “First off, I would like to publicly make amends with Jack Gaughan about that business with Frazetta last issue.” The Ring is reviewed by Faith Lincoln. A Gaughan letter leads off the letter column; also a LoC from Bob Silverberg (still living in New York City).
