Modern Fanzines (after 1980)

Fanzines have been the traditional means for S-F fans to communicate. "All knowledge is contained in fanzines" is a popular adage.

We will try to provide a large selection of the most popular and most important fanzines of the past. Many of the best know professionals in the field started in fanzines. People like Ray Bradbury, Harlan Ellison, Robert Silverberg and Lois McMaster Bujold started as fans.

Initially, we will put these fanzines on the web as graphic files. Eventually we hope to provide some of the material as text files which will load faster and be searchable.

All of this work is done by volunteers. This is a great place for you to help. If you would be willing to convert some of the material to text, even an article or two, it would greatly speed up the process. If you are interested, send email to me below.
