|Science fiction author James Blish relaxing in the living room at Arrowhead, his home in Milford, Pennsylvania, some time in the 1950s.|
He was either listening to someone speak, or to music; his tube audio system was in the cabinet to the left, and as you can see, the doors are open. He was definitely listening to something, I recognize the expression, having seen it many times.
The house saw many visitors in those days that SF devotees would likely recognize. Editors, authors, agents, fans, artists, friends and relations, it was a busy, busy place. SFWA was founded in this very room by James Blish, Damon Knight, and some others. Early "fanzines" were mimeo'd here, and the earliest "filk" was sung (in fact, he and some partners founded a record label, "Vanguard", upon which was recorded some early filk at 78 RPM... I'm looking for one of those, please email me if you have one!) Truly a historical place and time for the entire SF community.
