(R) Recipes for Disaster, Rodney’s Messy Zine_Like Thing

Recipes for Disaster / Deb Geisler for Rune Press, P.O. Box 8297, Lake St. Station, Minneapolis MN 55408 / Epic cookbook cum souvenir book for Minicon 39, prepped by the Noreascon 4 chairman, designed by Geri Sullivan, with tips for the best bid party, appreciative notes on con GoH Connie Willis, a Bostonian lexicon (“shot (adj) Not tall”), and some cute personal natter from this pink-o-phobic genius of a conventioneer.

Rodney’s Messy Zine_Like Thing #3 / Rodney Leighton, R.R. #3, Tatamagouche, N.S. B0K 1V0 Canada / In which Leighton perambles about the letters and zines and books that have come his way of recent, messy indeed but all the more human and accessible for that. Rodney thinks I’m sneering at him because he’s still mourning the recent loss of his parents, and that’s just not so, since I still think about Guy Lillian Jr., lost to a coronary far too young (he was 62) in 1988, and mourn the mother I’ve lost to Alzheimer’s while she still breathes. I’m just worried that Rodney is hurting himself, he hurts so much. Well, it takes as long as it takes. The only thing I’d “sneer” at Leighton about is his consistent swan song: he’s been claiming that he’s quitting fandom for five years.
