|First Fandom is one of the oldest and most
revered groups in Science Fiction Fandom.
It is my job to preserve and carry on the traditions
that the founding members created.As fandom ages we must pass down the
literature, history and heritage of this great genre. Society as a whole
owes a major debt to science fiction. The creativity of the fans that become
artist, writers and scientists have made our everyday lives easier, more
comfortable and healthier. From faster transportation to heart surgery.
SF thought it up and science made it come true.I am proud to say that I
am part of the third generation of fandom. Carrying on the traditions
of my dinosaur friends.
