My wife and I were discussing S.D. and life this morning, and I happened to mention our beloved chronicler of the Origin Stories of the Moderators, Fenris. (Note to Mods: feel free to change that phrase to a link if you want to reveal your sordid stories! )
Her ears perked up, and she noted that at a S.F. convention, Katharine Kurtz, creator of the Deryni, had auctioned off the right to have yourself appear in a Deryni story to help raise money for some charity that was being sponsored, or possibly to pay convention bills. And that the auction had been won by one Fenris, or at least that was his S.C.A. identity that he wanted her to use.
The story in question is “Trial” and appears in her Deryni Chronicles anthology.
Which leads me to wonder if our resident Fenris, whom I know is an avid F&SF fan and whom I seem to remember having mentioned involvement in S.C.A., is the Fenris.
All of which makes me wonder about this board – we’re having fictional characters show up now?!? :eek:
