    Details supplied by Bud Webster.
    • [illustrations] · Jack Gaughan · il
    • 1 · Nebula Awards Banquets, 1970 · Anon. · ar; Once again, the Nebs were to be held in three very disparate places, NYC,; New Orleans and Berkeley. The latter Banquet was organized by Alva Rogers,; Greg Benford and Chelsea Quinn Yarbro.
    • 2 · From the Secretary-Treasurer · Anne McCaffrey · cl; “Responding to the requests of many members, and because efficient equipment; is a felt want, SFWA purchased a used #360 Gestetner in excellent condition; for $345....It will facilitate the production of the FORUM...” How...faanish.; Also, the colophon mentions that the Managing Editor is Joyce Malzberg, and; that typesetting was done on an IBM Selectric. When did Ted White cease; doing it in his basement along with CRAWDADDY?
    • 3 · Obituary - Evelyn del Rey · Robert Silverberg · ob; Heartfelt and affectionate, he writes “Shrewd, witty, capable of loving and; receiving love, she brought laughter and grace wherever she went. And though; she was a strong-minded woman in a field marked by clashing egos, she had,; so far as I’m aware, no enemies at all.” lovely, Bob.
    • 4-5 · Eire - A Writer’s Paradise · Harry Harrison · ar; about the advantages and drawbacks to living in Ireland under Articlea 1 & 2; of the Finance Act. “Bob Shaw, Irishman himself...states that a writer could; rent a simple country cottage for 2 pounds a week and buy enough food to; cook for another 2 quid. So a bit less than ten dollars a week would cover; all expenses. $500 a year!” At some point, Sec-Treas McCaffrey must have; taken him at his word.
    • 6-13 · The Doubleday Contract · Damon Knight · ar; fourth in a series, prefaced by his “About the Contract Articles.” “Each; BULLETIN contract article is offered to the publisgher for comment or; rebuttal. Doubleday received a copy of this one, but declined to discuss; it.” Bob, Barry, how successful were these articles in persuading the; publishers?
    • 13 · Nebula Nominations · Anon. · ms; including PKDick’s “A. Lincoln, Simulacrum”, published as We Can Build You by DAW in ’72.
    • 14-16 · What Can Be Found on Other Worlds? (Analysis of the Unknown) · Alexis Tsvetikov · ar; “It appears to be possible that the following little investigation would be; of some interest and use to the science fiction Writers. It shows them; roughly what kind of aliens and their environment authors may consider; populating their distant worlds.” What follows is certainly beyond my; capabilities, but I’d love for somebody to explain it to me in small words.; It’s followed by a note from Ms McCaffrey: “The above article is obviously; complimentary to ‘How to Build a Planet’ by Poul Anderson, BULLETIN, Vol. 2,; No. 6, Whole No. 9.”
    • 16 · New Members · Anon. · cl; includws Jack Dann and Robert Weinberg, not to mention the reinstatement of Bester and Delany.
    • 17-19 · People and Places · Anon. · cl; in which Judy Merril announces “...the wedding of her daughter, Ann Pohl to; Alan Reed”, and that James Blish signed with Doubleday “...to do a; definitive, two-volume history of witchcraft and demonology.” As I can find; no record of this, would I be correct in assuming that this turned into the; After Such Knowledge books?
    • 19 · Note · Gordon Dickson · ms; preface to the Market Report indicating that “...no more marketplace; announcements for ’Ultimate Publications’ (AMAZING, FANTASTIC, and certain; reprint magazines) will be run until further notice for the following; reasons: Several SFWA members have complained that manuscripts submitted at; Ultimate have neiher been accepted nor returned and requests for returns; have been ignored.”
    • 20 · Market Report · Anon. · cl; “NEW DIMENSIONS: Robert Silverberg reports that this volume has now been; closed. There is a good possibility for a successor but at present he does; not want submissions. The membership will be notified.” So, Bob, whatever; happened with this one?

    Given as v7 #5, whole number 29. Details supplied by Bud Webster.
    • Election Results · Anne McCaffrey · ar; “Gordon R. Dickson Returned to office. Tom Purdom New Vice President, Quinn Yarbro New secretary.”
    • From the Secretary/Treasurer · Anne McCaffrey · ar; “Without giving way to a typically McCaffrey-type scene, I can’t step down from my official/officious position as Secretary/Treasurer without thanking SFWAns in general for putting up with my various errors, flaws, delayed replies and mix-ups. (Ha! you didn’t know I goofed, did you?)”
    • The 1969, West-Coast Nebula Awards Banquet, Revisited · Roger Lovin · ar; “1969 will go down in SFWA history as the Year the West Coast stuck it in New York’s Ear...It may also make history on the gab-n’-gobble circuit as the year the rubber chicken was finally laid to rest. Did we eat!”
    • The Future of SFWA Public Relations · James Gunn · ar; “One way public relations operates is to take advantage of natural public relations opportunities: 1) conventions; 2) awards; 3) publications; 4) visits; 5) articles; 6) courses; 7) films; 8) speakers; and 0) whatever else the fertile minds in this field can think of.”
    • Title List and Ms. Return Survey Results · John Jakes · ar; “Major publishers of hard and soft cover science fiction were surveyed to obtain a statement of policy on these two questions:; 1. Are you willing to carry a list of the author’s previously published titles, including titles not published by you, provided the author furnishes the copy?; 2. Is a book manuscript regularly returned to the author after publication? Or is it returned only if the author requests it?” Avon, Bantam, Belmont, and Walker & Co. didn’t reply.
    • Part Time Jobs for Science Fiction Writers · Tom Purdom · ar; “...I have also encountered a certain amount of prejudice against science fiction writers. Many employers still associate science fiction with bug eyed monsters...” Well, that hasn’t changed much in 45 years.
    • Nebula Recommendations · Anon. · ms; Six of the eight novel nominees were Ace titles.
    • New Members · Anon. · cl; Included Jerry Bixby (Jerome, I presume), Sam Lundwall and Bill Rotsler.
    • People and Places · Anon. · cl; Features a lengthy note from George Scithers about duplicating manuscripts for multiple submissions suggesting that members “...inquire at your local Eastman Kodak Verifax Dealer. Mine sold me a used Bantam copier for $25; it’s worked perfectly ever since.”
    • Market Report · Anon. · cl; Includes an announcement that Dell Books “...has cut back its SF program to near nothing and Gail Morrison will not read new mss. for the present.” I wonder how long that lasted? Also, Chum Silverberg announced that New Dimensions 2 “...is not open yet, and the editor is not reading mss. at the moment.”
