This month the internet generation discovered the Breendoggle of 1964. While it had been documented online by Stephen Goldin years ago and repeatedly in fanzines since the original event, some blamed their failure to encounter the information earlier on a fannish conspiracy of silence. However, everyone was forced to re-examine whatever they thought they knew when shocking new ground was broken by Marion Zimmer Bradley’s daughter, who responded to the latest discussion by revealing she had been abused by her mother.
Meantime, hope was dashed that missing film historian John Cocchi would be found alive. Michigan fan Kathleen Conat passed away. And a memorial for the late Michael Pell was dedicated by coworkers and the Los Angeles Police Department.
