Dick Eney

(September 13, 1932 — December 22, 2006)

Richard H. Eney was a fan who lived mainly in the Washington, DC area and who published numerous fanzines since discovering fandom in 1949. Perhaps most famously, in 1959 he published Fancyclopedia 2, a 200+ page encyclopedia of fandom and fannish lore. (He also did an addendum in 1960 which was bound with the 1959 version and in 1962, the Rejected Canon/Fancyclopedia 2. In 1968 he published FANCYCLOPDigest, a shorter collection of just the good stuff.)

He was married to fellow fan Tamar Lindsay.

Two years later, Eney ran for TAFF, losing to Ron Ellik. Eney worked on committees for Discon I, Discon II, and Constellation and was the Fan Guest of Honor at L.A.Con II, the 1984 Worldcon. He served as OE of FAPA and SAPS and was a member of The Cult and the Washington in '77 Worldcon bid. He was toastmaster at Conterpoint 1993. He was made a Knight of St. Fantony in 1965. He was a member of WSFA and served in multiple offices. He was a member of the N3F (and edited Tightbeam 28 in November 1964.) With Alva Rogers, he reprinted Francis Towner Laney's Ah! Sweet Idiocy!.

Operation Crifanac was his publishing house. He was OE and VP of FAPA and OE of SAPS.
