The third week of attendance "Building a world before your very eyes"—Harlan's world—the world that was named MEDEA, featured the author/scientists who would build that world—POUL ANDERSON, HAL CLEMENT, LARRY NIVEN and FREDERIK POHL (and of course, Harlan himself). A stapled booklet of 23 pages was distributed to the audience—there were not enough to go around but I managed through much elbowing to get a copy—detailing each author's particular area of expertise; these specifics were added to that evening from suggestions from the audience. I have had that booklet in my posession for more than forty years, and since that time got all the contributors to SIGN the book EXCEPT Ellison—who would not sign. Along with the booklet is the original announcement for the course.
