Harry Turner's Footnotes to Fandom
Ron Lane Remembered    | FOOTNOTES Page | Obituary Page |

Manchester Fan Ron Lane

Ron Lane published several zines, including Gemini, though my mind is blank about content. He had literary inclinations - oddly enough he was recruited into fandom by the English master at Ducie Avenue Central School, Sam Mundy, who had been very patient in putting up with my efforts to convert Eng. Lit. to SF while a pupil and kept in touch with me after I left school, pointing likely candidates in the direction of the Manchester Interplanetary Society...

I think you'll find some verse in Gemini. Ron was active in fandom during the war years and finally became a Bevin boy. Died in a boating accident in the fities, alas. And Eric [Needham]; died of a heart attack a few years ago... ■
