Janis says: I first met George and Parris in 2001. I’d performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival the night before, and was having a quick breakfast at the hotel before leaving to attend my first Worldcon. (Which, coincidentally, Anne and Gigi McCaffrey had insisted I attend, and Mike Resnick had then forced me into signing up.) I was terribly nervous about meeting Mike for the first time, not to mention the other authors I’d worshipped over the years. In the next booth, I heard someone mention “Worldcon”, so I politely asked whether the people there were attending? Parris and her friend Dave Axler invited me to sit with them, and I barraged them with questions about how the convention would work. At some point I asked Parris if she knew any of the writers, and were they nice... I had no idea she was George’s long-time spouse! Parris and George were the first people to suggest this auction, and the first to sign on with items. Always so nice when a great artist is also a great person.
