      Peter Beagle's mother died on Saturday, June 24th. She was 100. Beagle was
      Guest of Honor at the 2001 Mythcon, and she attended the banquet that year.
      Beagle was also one of the guests at this year's Balticon (in Baltimore).
      Balticon got Neil Gaiman, Gene Wolfe, and Peter Beagle this year, so it was an
      excellent year for guests.

      Beagle has had lots of money problems in recent years. He's never been
      treated well by publishers and producers. You could hear the bitterness in his
      banquet talk at Mythcon. Like everyone else who's ever met Saul Zaentz, he's
      been screwed over financially. Zaentz only paid him $5,000 to write the
      script of the Bakshi film of _The Lord of the Rings_. Zaentz promised Beagle
      more film work if he'd take the job for a small amount of money, but then he
      didn't give Beagle any additional work.
