Lin Daniel is holding a jan howard finder Memorial and Irish Wake, aka WombatCon, on June 1 in Albany, New York.

Lin – “jan’s ‘Otter Half’” – adds:
Please come. I would love to see you, to meet you for the first time, or meet you in person. If you cannot attend, but wish to share your memories of jan, please reply to this email. I’ll be posting material to jan’s blog.
Lin is still writing new material for The Real Wombat, such as —
Archeology At Jan’s House just turned up… *drum*roll*please* jan’s grade school report cards. With things like “needs improvement in self control” and under “promptness” the note “stalls”. All I can say is the man was consistent.
