Loscon 34, 23 – 25 November 2007 in Los Angeles, will be the venue for the presentation of three awards; the Forry Award, the Rotsler Award, and the Evans-Freehafer Award.
The latter is kept secret until the Loscon presentation, and it is for the person (invariably a LASFS member) who has done the most for the club during the previous year. But the other two awards are pertinent to the s-f field, are decided early. Both were decided for 2007 during the past week.
The Forry Award, for lifetime service to the science fiction community, was voted by the LASFS membership at its meeting of 27 September to be presented to David Gerrold.
The Rotsler Award, for lifetime work of outstanding fan artists, was selected by a panel of three judges appointed by the Southern California Institute for Fan Interests, Inc. (SCIFI). This year’s recipient will be Terry Jeeves. There will be a display of Jeeves’ fanzine art in the Loscon 34 Art Show.
Many thanks to Fred, and our congratulations to the winners.
