Fancyclopedia I

John Bristol (Jack Speer)

Published by the Fantasy Foundation, 1944

Introduction

The purpose of the Fancyclopedia, not fully realized, is to define all expressions, except nonce-words, which have an esoteric meaning in fantasy fandom, and to supply other information, such as that on Esperanto, which may be needed to understand what fans say, write, and do. For a more detailed description of the Fancyclopedia please see the complete Introduction.

Additional information and some entries that were inadvertently omitted from the original document may be found in the ERRATADDENDUM.

We have tried to be as accurate as we can on these pages. We hope to scan and add the handwritten symbols at a later time. In some cases the original copy was impossible to read and we have indicated this with question marks -- ??? -- if you can correct these omissions, we would appreciate the assistance. Thank you.
