Man, those pictures take me back. Even though I wasn't out here till late 85. Especially the shots of Dean Mullaney and cat yronwode.I would have been doing the Scythe for the Ms Tree. comic. Awful stuff. Don't look at it
Back when Shel came to the con in costume. As "man with hair." Just think how important that guy is to all of us getting to know each other.
It's too bad that Shel had a falling out with the Con. Maybe he can take back the comic part and do it at the old convention center.
His health probably won't allow it these days. He's pretty much resigned himself to the conditions of his situation. Which is sad. I hope I end up better when I get 75.
The pics are great. I started showing up the following year. And I though it was GIANT then. Who would have guessed then it would become the slobbering abomination it has mutated into. Those first 10 years showing up on vaction, working the Books Nippon tables were the best. I miss all that.
Type-O...That's V.A.C.A.T.I.O.N. at the San Diego Con.
Vaction rhymes with action and that spells Troubel
