      Disch was the toastmaster at an early ConQuest (an annual Kansas City
      SciFi convention), and actually signed toasters.

      If you ever get a chance to read his non-fiction _The Dreams Our Stuff
      Is Made Of_, definitely read it. It's an easygoing analysis of
      science fiction from the days of the Coyote stories through it's date
      of publication. You may not agree with all of his ideas, but you'll
      certainly enjoy the ride.

      He will be missed.
