Transcript ■Mm hoping to get the $&### class transferred from the library to the education department, wh&n a small salary would become possible— and, of more real point, the thing could be kept up when Rog goes. One last impression: the class was a lot like any other California after-breakfast club—much applauding visiting firemen, much handshaking, and photographers from The San Quentin News; I may get my picture ini I won't try anything blow-by-blow on the Con. Best organize my remarks by people. Cele Goldsmith: out to receive the "Invisible Little Man" award (for the best unrecognized contribution to the s-f field) passed out annually every few years by # Frisco's famous Little Men's Marching, Chowder, Science-Fiction and Rocketry Society. It's a statue base with nothing on it but two gold footprints. I presented her with THE HATCHERY OF DREAMS, the 5?000-word short story I'd spent the previous three days writing. Got in return an even weirder cover assignment due in October, for which Bjo or some LASFS artist she assigns can present inside illos. (Bjo, good girl, also sold Cele a fine cover by George Barr, for which they hope to get Clark Ashton Smith to do the# story.) Just remembered some Quentin gossip. After three weeks there (after the usual six at Chico) Finch is a member of the protestant choir and has snagged the job of secretary to the protestant chaplain. Gonna be a big wheel there and get that 8th-year parole. And one of the class members is Crocker, on death row but$## his sentence converted from death to life by the new governor. Crocker (who stabbed his girlfriend when she rejected him; has decided to make the novel his art-form. Tony Boucher introduced me very flatteringly at the Banquet, where my hour-long speech was taped for possible broadaast by KPFA, San Francisco's cultural station, equivalent to KPFK here and then there's one in the east. Tony had some interesting and highly believable stuff to say about the detective story (at other sessions)—that Ed McBain's has folded after three issues; that he finds the Hitchcock magazine very dull because all the stories are trying to be little harmlessly sardonic Hitchcock TV shows; that he recently read (for a study) all the stories in all the detective short-story mags on the stands (one issue each) and found them unbelievably bad—even worse than the worst s-f magazines, which, as he said, was hard to believe. Bjo Trimble and Karen Anderson got Don Wollheim to give them the original of Emsh's fine cover for THE BIG TIME and presented it to me at the banquet. Big thrill. Margaret St. Clair (kind of witcry grimacy face with big glasses and shock of hair) came up demanding where is my wife, where is Jonquil—they had so much fun talking together last time they met and do on—very disappointed to hear Jonquil not available. St. Clair is the one who has done that fine s-f series called the "People" stories. Poul Anderson much on program. Among his other ideas is one for the Anti-Progress League—we put fcoaiblocks across all freeways, things like that. Fun talking. Joe and Roberta Gibson in fine shape, both still working with the (Berkeley) university press and police force, respectively. Frank Herbert, author of Under Pressure (or The Dragon in the Sea) one of my own top-ten s-f novels, turns out to be a reporter for the Oakland Tribune blond-bearded like the Schweppesman himself. Jack Vance and his wife Norma, who had Cele and me to dinner in their hilltop home Sunday Might. Four cats and (these latter .. ■ HH
