The Fanac Fan History Project

Please see
What's New! for details

This site is devoted to the preservation and distribution of information about science fiction and science fiction fandom. Here you might find your favorite fanzine, pictures of Walt Willis in Ireland or Harlan Ellison at the 1955 Worldcon. You can also find the words to an early filk song, information about an SF con near you AND all sorts of strange and wonderful information about fandom's past. And the present, too, because that's tomorrow's past.

Please look through the thousands of pages we have about our fannish history. Look at the index and browse through what interests you. If you are looking for a specific person, check our Cross Reference. It will link you to the page or pages where that person has some material or is mentioned.

After you have had a chance to look at the material here at The Fan History Project, please go to our Guestbook and let us know what you think about our web site. If you would like to know how you can help, please drop us a line. This is the product of many, many hands.

What's Old That's New at the Fan History Project?

If you would like to be kept informed as we add material to the Fan History Project, please send us your name and email address.


Occasionally, not more that once or twice a month, we will send you a brief e-mail message telling you what we have added to our web site. If you are interested, you can come and browse our fanhistorical materials. We promise not to distribute this list to anyone else.

The intent of this site is to provide a central repository for material about Science Fiction and S-F Fandom in particular. We want to make this available to all interested people in an easily accessible form. Your comments are a great help to us in understanding how well we are doing, and your suggestions will help us to improve.'s webmaster was Jack Weaver from the late 1990s through Spring, 2016 and since then has been Edie Stern.

Thank you........
