Cats Sleep on SFF: Starling 13

Steve Johnson has been a File 770 reader since the late Seventies (albeit with a long, pre-Internet break) who used to read issues printed with a Gestetner mimeo. But I never had this bucket — or a cat:

Della Street is a two year old Calico cat, intensely curious about novel objects, so long as they are novel.  I doubt if she will ever again pay attention to the Gestetner Ice Bucket or anything printed on twiltone paper. (The fanzine is Starling 13, January 1969.)

  1. This is unrelated. I found your post about Randy Byers’ death in 2017. I went to high school and worked with him in Salem, OR, and have tried to find him on and off through the years. I’m sorry I didn’t look hard enough in the past and lost my chance to reconnect. Email me if you want.

    I do like cats 🙂

  2. Della Street is entirely right in being curious. Especially with all interesting cords to explore.

  3. I have one of those Gestetner ice buckets but lack that specific issue of STARLING.

    I also cohabit with three cats but photographing them is tricky.
