Nic Farey

A fanzine fan and conrunner born in Britain who emigrated to the United States in 1993, living in Maryland for many years before moving to Las Vegas where he currently resides. He discovered fandom around 1981. While in Britain he was initially heavily involved in Star Trek fandom and also worked Novacon and Mexicon, leading the sound and lighting crew.
First at a Mexicon, and later at Novacon, he co-hosted with Mark Plummer a series of "Teck Crew room parties" which were fund-raisers for various fannish causes such as TAFF. One of these was sharply curtailed due to The Trouser Press Incident involving James Bacon.

He co-chaired (with Bob (Fake) Shaw) an Eastercon bid (for Contact) which folded due to an ongoing period of illness.

He chaired Corflu Valentine and Cor31u. He was CGoH at Corflu 18. He was one of the lead characters in an Ian Sorenson fannish musical, The Booze Brothers.

His fanzines include Arrows of Desire (under the pseudonym S V O'Jay), This Here..., Nichevo, Tits, Sausages and Ballet Shoes, Beam, and Singsing for FAPA. He co-edited All Jacq'd Up with Steve Green, a fanzine promoting the ultimately successful TAFF candidacy of Jacqueline Monahan.
