OT: obit of Joan Winston

Very interesting obituary on someone who sounds very neat...one of the original organizers for the Star Trek conventions.

Hope she finds an afterlife in outer space.

As a tiny little Trekker, Joan's book Star Trek Lives! was one of my first introductions to organized fandom. i read this book until it fell apart. A wonderful introduction to a larger world by a very vibrant and energetic woman.

Bully,

It's hard to imagine you even littler. You must have been the size of Tom Thumb.

I haven't had a chance to read any of Joan Winston's works. One of these days, I will have to so that I can relive the original Star Trek series (so cool).

By the way, I was very jealous of your Batman outfit at Comic-Con. I think you have a better wardrobe than me.

cheers,
Postillion
