Big deal, they are all dead.

Well, think about how few from this list are signed up.  Then there
are those like Hugh Daniels who always intended to sign up, but didn't
and died unexpectedly.

The regular PENSFA parties seldom had an author.  What you might be
thinking of is the time BayCon asked me to host an offsite party for
Spider Robinson when he was their Guest of Honor.  Poul Anderson
turned up for that party. I think Leslie  Fish
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leslie_Fish) was there  Wish I had kept
a list of who came.

At the time my next-door neighbor was a fairly mellow FBI agent.  The
next day he commented on the smoke drifting out of my backyard.  This
was before even medical use was allowed.
