Born: February 12, 1933 – Juanita Coulson
For three decades Juanita Coulson and her husband Buck co-edited Yandro, which won the Best Fanzine Hugo in 1965 and in the process made her just the second woman to win a fan Hugo. (The first was Elinor Busby, co-editor of Cry of the Nameless.)
Also a renowned filker, Juanita was inducted to the Filk Hall of Fame in 1996.
She has 18 published novels. The first, Crisis on Cheiron, came out in 1967.
Juanita was named winner of the Big Heart Award at Chicon 7 in 2012.
And she deserves all the praise and good wishes and happy birthdays she gets!
Which reminds me that I haven’t yet sent in my DUFF ballot. Deadline 31 March.
