SF Conventional Calendar: Erwin S. Strauss

Another jam-packed month. For Asimovians, I recommend any of the first four cons (I’ll be at PhilCon), as well as TusCon, ICon, LosCon and SFConTario. I’ll be at DarkoverCon, to hang with some musical friends. Plan now for social weekends with your favorite SF authors, editors, artists, and fellow fans. For an explanation of our con(vention)s, a sample of SF folksongs, and info on fanzines and clubs, send me an SASE (self-addressed, stamped #10 [business] envelope) at 10 Hill #22-L, Newark NJ 07102. The hot line is (973) 242-5999. If a machine answers (with a list of the week’s cons), leave a message and I’ll call back on my nickel. When writing
cons, send an SASE. For free listings, tell me of your con five months out. Look for me at cons behind the Filthy Pierre badge, playing a musical keyboard—Erwin S. Strauss
