Missed It: Larry Lankford, RIP

Kevin Melrose has details on the passing late in 2013 of Dallas Fantasy Fair founder Jim Lankford. Lankford was a very young 53 considering his prominence came in the 1980s and early 1990s. Melrose has it right in terms of Dallas being perceived as a firm #3 show behind San Diego and Chicago for a time there -- I don't know the measurables, but that's my conception of how it was perceived. The Dallas show was also for some people an expression of the very active and important fandom that Texas was able to boast in the 1960s and 1970s.
