A cartoon slide show which was a nominee for the 1976 Best Dramatic Presentation Hugo.

According to one report describing a coloring books made of it, "Robert Asprin and Phil Foglio. The Capture Coloring Book. Kalamazoo, MI: Boojums Press, 1976. Paper Wrappers. From the minds of Windycon 1974. What would happen if People at a Science Fiction Convention Cruise were abducted by aliens and scrutinized? "Shown indiscriminately around the country at various Cons...Apparently, this was an idea of Robert Asprin. He wanted to put together a sort of humorous presentation about fans at a convention being captured and shown at exhibits, and he wanted Polly and Kelly Freas (the ones who worked on the first two Myth Books) to illustrate it. For one reason or another, they couldn't/didn't want to do it, so he got Foglio, and this must have been one of the first things they did together. So Foglio did a bunch of pictures that go along with a spoken presentation, and this was apparently shown at several conventions [starting in 1974]. Eventually, it was made into a book."
