(Continued from Page 1)
in this," Nagey explained. "People will bring in
ten old books they have read and take seven out.
Dr buy the books, if they'd prefer. The store can
increase their stocks in this way without cost to
anyone."
THE AGE GAP leaps upward to Ted Reynolds,
a 32-year-old grad student in American cultures.
At the age of 12, Reynolds had already been pub-
lished in four major science fiction magazines. He
is currently compiling a fiction collection.
All energies and interests in the group are cur-
rently focusing on the Ann Arbor Relax-Icon to be
Lield Feb. 15through 17, a "miniature" replica of
the Science Fiction World Convention held last
year in Toronto.
THE ACTIVITIES will take place in the Fac-
ulty Club Lounge of the Michigan Union. Regis-
tration will be held there at 4 p.m. Friday. Ad-
mission is $5 and covers all convention events.
Among the big names to be in attendance are
Lloyd Biggle, an established professional science
fiction writer, Guy Snyder, a fledging local liter-
ary talent and author of the recently released
novel "Testament XXI," Howard De Vore, a col-
lector whose knowledge of the science fiction gen-
res is said to exceed that of anyone in the Ann
Arbor area, and the eminent author, T. L. Sher-
red.
Sherred has written excellent science fiction
since the fifties and has won more'literary awards
than any other science fiction author.
"THE GREAT THING about this convention"
Nagey emphasized, "is that there will be a
ratio of approximately one pro to every five mbem-
bers. And these pros ar friendly as hell."

Nagey related stories of drinking Jack Daniels
from the bottle with De Tore and chatting with Is-
sac Asminov in a public restroom in Toronto.
The convention will feature avant-garde movies,
cartoons and a science fiction light show. There
will be swimming on Friday and a masquerade
party Saturday night.
THE ENGINEERING COLLEGE will sponsor a
lunar landing and orbiting simulation demonstra-
tion Saturday. From 1 to 5 p.m., students can try
their hand at staying in orbit and landing on the
moon.
Nagey explained the progress of science fiction
as a sophisticated, conscious process. It was initi-
ated to explain the technological expansion of so-
ciety and the general awareness of man.
"But it now encompasses the entire universe",
he continued, "there is no end to what you can
talk about."
THE BEST SCIENCE fiction of the forties had
been brilliantly predictive. The general tone
through the early fifties was instructive. Science
fictionalists were the triumphant prophets of space
travel and atomic power. They gave us direful
warnings of atomic warfare, military tactics and
an overpopulated world.
The Relax Icon is open and welcome to the
public as is the Stilyagi Air Corps itself.
"WE MAY SEEM like a close tight brethren,"
Nagey said, "but really we're growing all the
time."
Finally he extended an invitation virtually im-
possible to refuse. "Come to our meetings and to
the convention" he said, "if you're interested in
the future."
