Warren Buff sent us a MP3 file (13.2 MB) of an interview that he did with Ron Zukowski while attending Contrails, DeepSounthCon 52. The interview may be accessed via the ConFederation audio index. Warren says of the interview: “I'm not a great interviewer on the fly, but luckily, I asked Ron one question, "Would you be willing to talk about ConFederation?", and he went on for a half hour”. Thanks Warren.

A while ago, actually about a decade age, we received CDs containing 14 WMA files, digitized versions of recordings of activities at Loncon II, the 1965 WorldCon, but they sort of fell through the cracks, so to speak. These recordings were made by Waldemar Kumming and digitized by Tomas Recktenwald. They have belatedly been uploaded to Loncon II's audio index.

We have added the latest issue of the Mt. Holz Science Fiction Society's newsletter The MT Void, Vol. 33, No. 9, that was sent to us by Mark and Evelyn Leeper. Thank you both

Dale Speirs sent us a PDF of issue #283 (7.0 MB) of his perzine Opuntia. Thanks Dale.
