Periodically, we will issue an Update to tell you what is going on with the FANAC Fan History Project. These Updates will contain information about changes to our web site, publications we are issuing, our exhibits, and other related information. To keep current on what we are adding, you can sign up on our new Fanac-Updates list on our home page (http://fanac.org). We will not give any addresses out. This being the first Update, I expect it will be longer than most.
We have added a lot of material to the Fan History Project web site (http://fanac.org) in the last few months. We now have nearly 20 fanzines on the site in text or graphic format (http://fanac.org/fanzines) and links to hundreds more. We are closing on 1,00 photos from Worldcons (http://fanac.org/worldcon), other conventions (http://fanac.org/Other_Cons) and fan groups from around the world (http://fanac.org/Fan_Photo_Album). The material comes from the 1930's right up to 1999.
We are reorganizing the web site to make the information more accessible. In addition to the items listed above, we have over 10MB of material for you to go through. From fannish references, fancyclopedias, fan histories, and enormous bib liographies at http://fanac.org/Fannish_Reference_Works to a Cross Reference list of nearly 9,00 fen who are mentioned on the FANAC Fan History Project web site at http://fanac.org/names.html. It's a virtual Who's Who of Fandom. See if you are listed. If not, why not? Help us document your fandom.
This is only a partial list of the New Material:
There is more being added all the time. We are working on a number of larger projects like the Master Fanzine Checklist and indices to major fanzines. So bookmark http://fanac.org and keep checking back.
