Notes1^ 1Mr. Wolfe's parents were living in New Jersey at the time, this has never been satisfactorily explained. 2To six feet, which is not actually large in Texas. *Awful & Maniacal. 4sometimes called Viet Nam with snow, but actually more like World War I redesigned by Milton Caniff. Mr. Wolfe wishes tot state that like E. Hemingway he once rode in an ambulance, and up front with the driver, too, So it was going to Yongdungp'o. So what? ^In charge of footnotes. "Not just technically a magazine; a real magazine with persnickety subscribers all over. 'In Peoria, Illinois. Mr. Wolfe moved away when he was four. Mrs. Wolfe stayed; the Wolfes now live in guess which state? Mr. Wolfe resents remarks about bad Genes. Q 17 Or fantasy writer, or science fantasy writer, or speculative faction writer — take your choice. iOon the other hand, Mr. Carr did not like "The Last Thrilling Wonder Story." Picky, picky. 11Mr. Wolfe wishes to state that he nearly threw away the notification, thinking it was junk mail. It just goes to show you. 12Mr. Wolfe has never received a Hugo. Can nothing be done about this? 1:JMr. Wolfe still has scads of uncollected stories. No reasonable offer will be rejected without due consideration. 14Not as bad as it sounds. i^Mr. Wolfe detests telephone calls, which tend to interrupt more vital activities, such as sleep. Unless he makes them himself. improperly speaking, notes should be F-A-C-E. Or perhaps F-0- 0-T. It's probably too late now. FREDERIK POHL has been in the forefront of science fiction since the days of the Futurians, the famous fan club that spawned many of science fiction's "Golden Age" writers. As editor (Super Science Stories, Galaxy, If), as agent for many of the top stars in the field, as collaborator (with C. M. Kornbluth on such classics as The Space Merchants and more recently with Jack Williamson), as statesman (president of SFWA and World SF), as cultural emissary for the State Department to Europe and Asia, and of course as author of numerous classic novels of science fiction, including the award-winning Man Plus, Gateway, JEM, Beyond the Blue Event Horizon, and The Cool War. Pohl is also known as a film critic (Science Fiction: Studies in Film) and historian of the field (The Way The Future Was); he has won many Hugo and Nebula Awards both for his fiction and his editing. He has also served actively in the Science Fiction Research Association, the American Astronautical Society, the British Interplanetary Society, the New York Acadedmy of Sciences, and other organizations. A globe-trotter in the cause, Pohl has visited Japanl China, Russia, and most of the countries of Europe, giving lectures and seminars. He is a regular as guest of honor at science fiction conventions. A prolific writer, he composed a story while sunbathing at the Conference on the Fantastic last year, read it a few hours later to enthusiastic conferees, and published it shortly thereafter. This is his third appearance as a special Guest of the Conference.
