Earl Kemp (1929-2020)

Earl was a smutmonger and a science-fiction fan. (What’s not to like?) He navigated the morass of laws against Bad Words that my cohort grew up with and wound up spending time in jail for his part in publishing an illustrated version of the President’s Commission Report on the subject just as victory was in sight. He published the famous symposium on Who Killed Science Fiction? back in the day, and in more recent years did a delightful zine of smut & fandom memories that I was pleased and proud to contribute to. He died at his computer.
