Transcript always busy, tossing out unorthodox opinions, playing devil's advocate (without being infuriating, which should be impossible), generally keeping everyone's minds awake. Phil is the kind of friend who calls you at 11:00 pm (which is already 2:00 am his time) and two hours later you hang up the phone thinking it's been fifteen minutes, until you catalogue the list of topics you covered and the amount of food for thought you got out of the conversation. Phil is the only man in the world who can say, "Even if you're only a woman, you're not so stupid," to almost every woman in the science fiction circle and make no enemies. (If you're not Phil, don't try it—it won't work for you.) Phil can start asking you a question at the beginning of dinner and finish phrasing it over coffee, and be entertaining in the invervening hours. In short, he's an impossibility masquerading as a man masquerading as a writer. Traditionally, most Westercon guests of honor have been West Coast notables. Phil, with his extraordinarily patient wife, Fruma, and their daughter, Adina, for whom the word precocious would have to be invented, nominally live in State College, Pennsylvania, which would make them East Coast residents. I don't believe it, because they're always here, living in a welter of borrowed houses, cars and typewriters, constantly telling you that they're leaving next week and, bv the way, can you come to dinner next month? They send their Christmas cards from Pennsylvania, but I always expect them to be here before their cards are. East Coast residents with less conviction would be difficult to imagine; even when they are there, I think their hearts are very much here. I can't tell you how to find William Tenn—if he's going to be here, I'd like to meet him myself—but you'll find Phil Klass where the action is, talking and esturing at the center of a good-sized crowd of listeners. He's worth the wait to et a word in edgewise, and he's worth the time his friendship demands. He's a pretty special person, even if he is only a man. 1.* IT'S ABOUT TIME
