Laura Beth Cook B&B Memories


Hi! I'm Laura Beth and I remember what it was like when I first got into fandom back in 1989. I would search for every little scrap that I could find regarding BATB. (Back then, information was very hard to come by... before the internet!)

I had pretty much been to every national convention from 1990 to 1997. For the past 15 years, I have only been on the periphery of fandom (attending the occasional WFOL) until recently when I was finally able to commit to attending the national con in Cleveland, July, 2013.

In preparation for attending the con, I have been going through all of my BATB memorabilia. The wonderful memories have all been coming back! That's when I thought how great it would be to share these things with the new fans. And with BatBland... that thought became a reality!
