Ann Arbor fan Larry Tucker suffered a stroke on July 15. He’s currently in the city’s St. Joseph’s Hospital, alert and aware but paralyzed on the right side and unable to talk.
Larry’s contributions to fandom have been significant and colorful. He is a past chair of ConFusion (1978-80). He famously produced an audio zine, Uncle Albert’s Electric Talking Fanzine, and a companion, Uncle Albert’s Video Fanzine.
He’s also been a mainstay of the Science Fiction Oral History Association and appears in the group’s latest podcast discussing The Great Propeller Beanie War.
