Shangri-LA

Various Editors

1940 - 1987

Fanzine

Shangri-LA was one of the official organs of the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society.

Note that Issue 31 was strangely formated. It was printed similarly to an Ace-Double book, with text reading front to middle and then continued starting on the last page and upside down. Further, pages 18 to 22 were printed sideways. The numbering continues from the first, Sober Side, ending on p.22, to the Lighter Side on the bacover (p.23 with printing upside down). It then proceeds back to the middle and ends on p.35 which is printed on half of p.22. We are showing this issue in numerical page order. You can use your imagination to recreate reading the issue as it first appeared OR you can flip your screen around.
