Post subject:  Something about Ray...

I met Ray Lafferty at several conventions, and he did always seem to have a drink in his hand. One fan dismally noted after handing him an empty can of Foster's, "you can't autograph a beer can"; Ray often was dismayed that people held onto the "odd writing" and "drunk" as going hand in hand. Ray mantained he was quite sane, seeing and observing, with such clarity that it was disturbing to others. He never liked his addiction and was ashamed of it.

A clueless fan asking about his drinking when Ray wasn't interested got an angry earful.
