That’s me in the above picture, when I was known as Leslye Lilker, the creator of the SAHAJ Universe. I was on a panel, sandwiched between Jean Lorrah’s NTM universe and Jacqueline Lichtenberg’s KRAITH. What an honor!
In 1978, at T’Con, I was honored by receiving the Fan Q for writing The Forging. The Fan Q for artist was awarded to my wonderful illustrator, Alice Jones (rip), for The Forging, and every other piece of fan art she had created.
Here I am in 2018, winning a ST trivia contest at a local library. My name has been changed legally to Leah Charifson, but I answer to anything, including ‘Hey! You!”
