Erwin S (Filthy Pierre) Strauss

Participates in 1 Session
Erwin S (Filthy Pierre) Strauss got into fandom and filking at MIT in the mid-1960s. He caused a stir there by publishing the MIT SF Society's collection of underground campus songs. He's gone on to be a fixture at East Coast cons, playing the piano at group-style filksings. In the mid-1970s, he started publishing a newsletter of SF convention listings, and continues that as a column in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. Also in the 1970s, he published the Microfilk, a compendium of every filksong he could get his hands on, in teeny, tiny type. It's available free in electronic form (so you can blow it up to where it's actually readable!). He produced his pastiche "The Enchanted Duplicator -- The Musical," based on the classic fannish story of the same name, on the stage at the Dublin WorldCon in 2019 (video available). He can be recognized by his iridescent "Filthy Pierre" badge and his mouth-powered organ.
