Salute to the SFPA Secretary

I now have a much greater appreciation for the Science Fiction Poetry Association secretary.

It took me an unbelievably long time to put labels on all those envelopes & stuff them with the Dwarf Stars anthology.

I really didn’t think it would be that bad – I was thinking it was about 2 ½ times the amount of mail pieces than my Christmas card list, but it was a lot more intense, especially since I don’t usually send out all of my cards at once.

I can’t imagine being the SFPA secretary and doing this particular mailing six times a year. Having something extra to add to the envelope (like a ballot for a special election…*gulp*) makes it worse.

Gary, I don’t know how you did it.

Heaven help Bud Webster.
