Struggling away trying to write my TAFF report I made the mistake of wondering about other reports and my thoughts went toward the man who started it all, Walt Willis.
Walt wrote The Harp Stateside and I managed to find the Chicon section of the report online in the fanzine Mimosa.
I read it and managed to depress myself completely as I realised that I would never be able to produce anything even a tenth as good.
However, I was enjoying reading Walt’s convention report so transferred it to my Kindle so I could read it there. Then I thought that other people might wish to read it on their e-readers so I’m sharing the converted file here.
If this is useful to anyone then please consider popping some money in the TAFF jar.
Use one of the buttons to the right that say ‘TAFF vote’ dollar payments or sterling payments. Both of them just show you a Paypal form so that you can shove money in my account and I then bank it into the TAFF account. There’s no voting concerned with these buttons at the moment.
If you want me to email the file straight to your kindle then let me know at jim at umor dot co dot uk or fill in the contact form top right of this page. Just send me your Kindle’s email address which you’ll find in your amazon kindle account. Click on ‘Your Account’ and that will give you a drop down menu. Then click ‘manage your content and devices’. Then you’ll see three tabs on the screen. Click the one that says ‘your devices’. You will then be shown whatever devices you have registered with Amazon and the email address associated with that device. Let me know that email address. Next go to the tab that says settings. Scroll down to ‘Approved Personal Document E-mail List’ and enter my umor dot co dot uk domain and that will allow me to email your kindle.
It’s a bit of a faff but delightful when things just magically appear on your device.
