Entry updated 26 October 2021. Tagged: Editor, Fan.
(1952- ) US fan and critic, active in Detroit fandom from the 1970s, publishing there an intermittent Fanzine, Seldon's Plan (1969-1985); he became active as a reviewer and commentator at about the same time. Chauvin is of general interest for the relatively early A Multitude of Visions (anth 1975 chap), an anthology of criticism whose contents have been sagaciously reprinted from Fanzines, where much (if not most) of the useful sf criticism up to this date had first appeared. Contributors to the anthology include James Blish, Thomas M Disch, Bruce R Gillespie, Ursula K Le Guin and Stanislaw Lem. Chauvin also edited a useful posthumous collection of Blish's criticism, The Tale That Wags the God (coll 1987). [JC]
