In the last five weeks, I have been to Albacon, Capclave, The Los Angeles Public Library annual conference, and the World Fantasy Convention; my son Peter had his eighth, and my daughter Elizabeth her third, birthday in October; our hot water heater had to be replaced; and we had some expensive automobile repairs. I misplaced my digital camera, but Moshe Feder loaned me his, so I have pictures of the more pleasant of these events. I thank him for his generosity.
My dear mother, Constance Elizabeth Nash Hartwell died on Friday, November 11, two days ago as I write this, of a stroke suffered a week before. I am out of words just now. Some NYRSF pictures from my travels will have to suffice.
