Authors Bio: Leslie Perri, already a member of the SFL, joined the famous Futurians of New York in December, 1938. She was described by Damon Knight in his tell-all book, The Futurians, as follows: "She was a tall, cool brunette who looked a little like the Dragon Lady in Terry and the Pirates." Frederik Pohl, in his The Way the Future Was described her as "strikingly beautiful, and strikingly intelligent, too, in a sulky, humorous, deprecatory way that matched well with most of the other people I admired." She was a member of the CPASF and the Science Fictioneers.In fanzines in the 1930s and 1940s, she signed herself "Leslie Perri"; her friends called her "Doë." She wrote prolifically for the Futurian fanzines, and was a founding member of the Fantasy Amateur Press Association (FAPA), created by fellow Futurian Donald Wollheim. She also wrote SF stories in magazines edited by fellow Futurians. As an artist, she contributed work to Astonishing Stories, edited by Pohl during 1940–1941.
