BCSFAzine #397 / Garth Spencer, Box 15335, VMPO, Vancouver BC V6R 2H7 Canada / firstname.lastname@example.org / http://www3.telus.net/dh2 /bcsfa / Though this quarterly (?) pub presents itself as "the newsletter of the British Columbia SF Association", and club events and forthcoming cons are noted, it is almost entirely the personal work of Garth Spencer. Some very interesting bits here. Nowhere else do we see fiction markets listed, nor the utterly incredible news item that Spain was considering granting civil rights to orang-utans on the basis of their resemblance to humans (speak for yourself). Felicity Walker provides some unique illos, and Cosmic Ray Seredin's Norwescon report is fun, particularly when he dozes off during a Bujold reading and dreams of Volkswagens. But I don't think I'll ever recover from this issue's lettercol, which seems to consist of Garth's responses to incoherent word cascades from internet spam.
