"Ruth Kurz's Rick & AJ hugging got an award at ZebraCon for Best Dramatic Illo in the non-S&H, non-Professionals category. (I thought it was an erotic illo, myself, but a friend told me it can't be erotic if they have their clothes on— I don't believe that.) ... I love Ruth's artwork SO MUCH. It certainly enhances these l/z's and our lives. [1]

Ruth Kurz had a big part in creating the Harry and Johnny slash fandom (i.e. Harry Callahan/John Davis from the Dirty Harry movies). She wrote much of the fiction, created a shared universe with canon, such as a timeline, for that ship, and recruited other fans to join.

She was also a very active artist, writer, and LoCer in other fandoms.

Ruth passed away in January 2019.
