Mike Glyer just posted this snippet of an interview with a man who attended the very first World-con back in 1939. And guess what? Even back then world-con was apparently shunning the wrongfans who were having the wrongfun, as well as authors who weren’t part of the dominant clique.

” Sam Moskowitz came over and told Wollheim, Michel and Pohl that they couldn’t go in.”

Huh, I guess its true, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Well at least World-con is still maintaining its oldest tradition. Aint that nice?
