I attended my first SF convention in July 1987. A book was heavily talked about. "Bimbos of the Death Sun" by Sharyn McCrumb. I bought it in Nov. at my next convention. It grew legs and never returned from the person who borrowed it. Sharyn McCrumb autographed my used bookstore copy in 1993.
I am trying to locate my copy of "Zombies from the Gene Pool" so she can autograph it Saturday at the signing at the public library this Saturday. I will, of course, wear a con t-shirt.
