Every Little Bit Helps

At an Eclecticon memorial gathering for Ann Elaine, a fan recounted:

I shared a funny story about Elaine and Agel and how they first met. They had been on a couple of the same listservs, and Elaine was very nervous about meeting her at this year's MediaWest*Con. Elaine had just recently started a new fannish printing service called Lindberg's Legacy Press, and no matter how often I assured her that Agel had seen and been impressed by the results, and how pleased she was that Elaine was making it possible for fen who didn't live near a good copy service to put out fanzines, Elaine was still timid about meeting the proprietress of Criterion Press, which puts out dozens of zines a year!

Well, I brought Elaine up to the Criterion Press table, murmuring encouragement all the way, and introduced the two. To Elaine's astonishment, Agel leaned across the table and said warmly, "It's a wonderful thing you're doing for fandom." Elaine just beamed. A few weeks later I was chatting with Elaine on the phone and she sounded a little bit down, so I said, in my best imitation of Agel's New Jersey accent, "It's a wonduhful thing youah doin' f' fandom!" It cheered her right up! [1]
