Lisa Deutsch, San Fernando Valley, 1968-1970 (then I moved to Santa Cruz).
It was Paula Sigman's fault! There were only two or three branches when I
joined. Mythprint was the only publication. Glen GoodKnight went to every
branch meeting. Bonnie Callahan was Bonnie Bergstrom, and Sherwood Smith was
Christine Smith. They are both still active! How many other maiden names can
I drag up?
Lots of us oldtimers still running about after all these years. Must be
crazy about fantasy, or something...
What's your full name? I'm lousy at remembering names, but I might remember
good to hear from you. I was Leslie Mardis, strawberry blonde hair, friends
with Glen,Bonnie, Bernie, Tasha. You and I used to talk alot.
What happened with the group. I know Glen and Bonnie were divorcing when I
left in 1976. I married Patrick Maloney, also a member, and I know they had a
picnic after that. Bernie started the Phantasie Society for awhile. We saw
people off and on when we return to Calif. Pat was in the Navy. I am now
I joined the sociiety in Feb 1969 with my friends Dawn Morris, Linda McGee,
and Anne Woods. I have photos of you from old yulemoots where we are talking.
You might think of me as a hobbit, because I was pretty well known for coming
to the 69 Bilbo -Frodo picnic as a Tim Kirk Hobbit with Shoes (from a drawing
by Tim). I dated alot of guys in the group: Chris Barzak, Alpajpuri(Paul
Novitski) and Chris Mitchell among some.
It is good to pick up on old friends. Its been a long long time. I have
traveled all over the US, have 2 kids, Brennan 21 married with baby due in
April, and Sean , 18 and aspiring writer.
Say Hi to anyone you know.
Oh, I was mostly San Fernando. Do explain he Paula Sigmon thing.

wonderful phrases. Actually, I was talking about Martin in the quote,
though I did refer to Goodkind earlier. He's only a cut above Robert
Jordan---not that great.
