Dear Mina,

Hi! I'm Jeremy Brett, the processing/fannish archivist at Texas A&M University. Morgan Dawn and I are, as you know, collaborating on creating a permanent digital collection (or as permanent as we can hope to get in the digital world, I suppose) for your work and those of others in the Minaverse. I just wanted to drop you an e-mail, introduce myself, and say hi.

I'm really excited about TAMU being the repository for your work, especially because I think the whole Minaverse is an amazing example of collaborative creative fannish effort and a wonderful window into the fannish mindset (one of them, anyway).

Thanks so much for writing it all in the first place, and thanks also for letting us keep it safe for the future.

Be well, Mina. Feel free to get in touch with me with any questions or comments, or anything else.

Jeremy

You deserve a longer letter than this; but it is my unhappy fate seldom to treat people so well as they deserve.

Jeremy,

Thank you so much for writing. I'm thrilled that Mina will live on. Writing her was enormous fun, and having other people contribute was an amazing experience.

Hi, Mina! (aka Carla, aka Carlanime - yeah, yeah, you know what, let's go with that one: I like that one best) Thanks so much for your sweet reply - it's really great to be in touch with you.

I'll be happy to keep you posted in the project as we go, and I'll be interested to hear what you're up to in future fannish incarnations!

Be well,
Jeremy
