The Here And Now
A Death in the Fannish Family
"For those of you who might know her--and it would probably be many old Escapade attendees and any old Star Wars fans-- Ming Wathne passed away last Friday, December 17."

Ming played a special role in preserving fandom history. In the 1980s she rescued thousand of fanzines from George Lucas' Star Wars library and set up a  fanzine lending library. Over the decades she built on her collection, ending up preserving over 3000 fanzines which she recently donated to the Fandom Culture Preservation project.

Leave your thoughts and condolences to her family here.
