Transcript . number of beautiful young women, one a tall blonde — named maybe Lois Miles? — who I'll swear was introduced to me as "Miss Science Fiction of 1949." An equally attractive brunette, a local Cincinnati fan named Bea Mahaffey, was circulating also, and before the con ended got herself a job with Ray Palmer of Amazing Stories; for a half dozen years she was the most beautiful assistant editor in science fiction. And that evening I met a most dramatic dark-eyed girl in a purple evening dress who had just startled the readers of Astounding with its first proto-feminist "woman's viewpoint," "woman signing her own female name to It, not just initials" story, "That Only a Mather": Judith Merril, who'd just been collaborating with Cyril Kornbluth on Gunner Cade and who turned out to have the finest critical mind for sf I'd yet encountered. I met any number of fans, one or two of whom actually asked me for my autograph (incredibly flattering!), and a lot of writers and even some editors. I drank with George 0. Smith. I bull-sessloned with Lester del Rey on all sorts of topics in and the practical arts. I met for the first time in person my new agent (actually the first agent I'd ever had), a skull-faced young veteran who spent a lot of time playing poker: Frederick Pohl; he also turned out to be the husband of Judith Merril.
