SFWA Bulletin [v3 #5, No. 14, October 1967] ed. Terry Carr (Science Fiction Writers Association, 24pp, octavo s/s) 
Details supplied by Bud Webster.
- 1-5 · The Eligibility Question · Robert Silverberg · ar; “Several SFWA members - notably Kit Reed and Nelson S. Bond - have raised the question of a liberalization of the criteria for active mebership in the organization.” This is, unless I’m mistaken, the origin of the “Requal” (for requalification) debate. Bob, am I even close?
- 5 · reply to “The Eligibility Question” · Kit Reed · ar
- 6-7 · Recruiting Report · Roger Zelazny · ms; a report from Secretary-Treasurer concerning the recruiting of new members.
- 8 · The 1967 Hugos · [uncredited] · ms; as awarded at NyCon, voting breakdown supplied by NyCon Chair Ted White. I find it interesting (and a little dismaying) to note that the Dramatic Presentation category consisted of two films (“Fahrenheit 451” and “Fantastic Voyage”) and THREE Star Trek episodes.
- 9-10 · [untitled] · Robert Silverberg · ms; adds some commentary to the earlier article on copyright renewal.
- · Donation of Manuscripts: II · Robert Silverberg · ar; adressing how the markets (FSF, AMAZING, FANTASTIC, ORBIT, GALAXY, IF, ANALOG) deal with manuscripts after publication.
- · Announcement · Alva Rogers · ms; announcement from the treasurer for the 26th WorldCon, about rates and asking that SFWAns attending let the program planners know.
- 11-13 · How to Collaborate Without Getting Your Head Shaved · Keith Laumer · ar; about his collabs with Rosel George Brown. Also, a brief squib saying “Publishers’ Weekly reports that J. R. R. Tolkien’s ’Lord of the Rings’ has now penetrated to South Vietnam: the Vietnamese Second Corps has taken the lidless eye of Sauron as its battle emblem.” Apparently a US Advisor, in an attempt to perfect his command of the language, translated the trilogy and the locals eagerly adopted the mythology.
- 14-15 · Nebula Nominations · [uncredited] · ms; I note that in the short fiction categories, no fewer than 7 of the 22 stories were from DV; 3 were from Orbit 2, 5 from F&SF. Also a “Special Note” from Zelazny asking that “Dawn” and “Death and the Executioner” be withdrawn as they made up part of Lord of Light, already nominated.
- 16-19 · What Works for Me · John Brunner · ar; “When you know you can do something, look for something you don’t know you can’t do. Of course, if you bring it off you’ll be back in the same spot afterwards, but what the hell?” This series of short pieces on writing is part of what I’d love to reprint, assuming that I can gain the permissions. Also on page 19, a letter from Ed ferman announcing that the F&SF anthology flat-rate fees will, henceforth, be increased by 50%. Pres. Silverberg comments that a more equitable arrangement would be based around “an advance against royalties covering a pro-rata share of the anthology’s earnings.” Works for me, hoss.
- 20 · Meet the Editor · Harry Harrison · cl
- 21-22 · The SF Writer’s Basic Library · [uncredited] · ms; “Following James Blish’s remark in the last Bulletin that every sf writer should have read the existing critical material on the field, several members asked for a list of these works. Here are the books suggested by Blish, Damon Knight and Richard Lupoff:” I will not post the list unless I’m asked to; I note, however, that I currently own 12 of the listed 15 titles. So how come I ain’t rich?
- 22 · New Members · [uncredited] · cl; William F. Nolan, George Clayton Johnson, A. J. Budrys, Vaughn Bodé (!), Robert Hoskins, and our very own renovated and veneered Chum, Reb Malzberg.
- 23 · People and Places · [uncredited] · cl; announcing the deaths of Hugo Gernsback, A. A. Wyn, artist George Salter and Edison Marshall; also the ’68 Nebs, to be held simultaneously in NYC and Berserkley.
- 24 · Market Report · [uncredited] · cl; One of the new markets listed is “Anubis, heretofore a fanzine, is changing over to professional status and offering 1 cent a word on acceptance…in the weird-horror-fantasy genre.” The editor and publisher was one Ronald J. Willis of Arlington, Virginia; I’ve never heard of him or the magazine, was it ever actually made available?
