YouTube: Feminism in 1970s/80s Fandom: Janice Bogstad, Jeanne Gomoll, and Lucy Huntzinger - Fandom in the 70s/80s saw real influence from people with a feminist perspective, from the creation of Wiscon to fanzines like Janus and Rude Bitch, and to raising awareness of the reality women experienced. What were the beginnings? How did Wiscon get started? Was fandom following popular culture or leading it?  - Part 1 - Panelists Janice Bogstad and Jeanne Gomoll tell us about the creation of Janus, Wiscon and the Madison nexus of feminist thought in 70s fandom, and Lucy Huntzinger brings us into the 80s with the lamentably short-run Rude Bitch, and her other experiences in fandom as a feminist. Moderated by Edie Stern, webmaster, this intriguing panel reveals the unusual origins of Janus (and how the editor found out it was a fanzine!), the academic background brought to the discussions of women in science fiction, and some of the factors that made Madison the hotbed of feminist thought in fandom. These personal histories trace the growth of feminist discussion in broader fandom, and explore why fandom felt like a safe space for women. The panelists also discuss the sometimes negative reactions received...Wound through with personal anecdotes ("Will the real James Tiptree please stand up!", and the production of "The Emperor Norton Science Fiction Hour"), the discussion provides a window on an important area of science fiction fan history.  - Part 2 - Panelists Jeanne, Lucy and Janice continue here with more on the reactions they received from others, and with the differences in being a feminist in fandom in the 70s and in the 80s...Part 2 has stories about dating approaches in fandom, the wonderful origins of Corflu, and a number of anecdotes (both serious and constructive as well as personal and funny) about well known women writers. There are charming anecdotes about Octavia Butler, Connie Willis, Sheri Tepper (and her rousing call to action on population growth), and Ursula Le Guin. You'll also hear about the origins and early days of the Tiptree Award, and its novel funding mechanism. Finally, there are audience comments and reminiscences including a true story about the Minneapolis chicken hat...This session is lots of fun, with a serious thread underlying it.

March 1, 2023
Fanzines: Unless otherwise noted, all scans re by Joe Siclari.
--Apollo, Joe Hensley and Lionel Innman. Added #2 (Nov 43).
--Centaur, Jack Chalker. Added Centaur 1 (Apr 60), aka the first issue of Mirage. The 2nd issue was named Kaleidoscope 2, and the third was named Mirage 3. It stayed Mirage after that. There's a John Berry article in this first issue. Adding the Centaur completes the run of Mirage.
--Conversation, Lynn Hickman. Added 2 issues of this new-to-us title, both from 1960.
--CyberCozen, Leybl Botwinik. Added the January and February issues. Thanks, Leybl.
--Fantasy Amateur. Added 5 issues: 195-197 (May-Nov 86), and 199-200 (May - Aug 87). All were by Seth Goldberg.
--Helen's Fantasia, Helen Wesson. Added 3 issues of this new-to-us title. The zine ran for decades. These issues are from the 50s/60s.
--Imagination, Russ Hodgkins. Added #4 (Jan 38). Contributors include Forry Ackerman, Ray Bradbury and Henry Kuttner. There's also the text of a letter received by Forry Ackerman from H.P. Lovecraft. I believe this completes the run. Thanks to David Ritter, who noticed we were missing issue #4 and volunteered to provide scan. Thanks, David!
--MT Void, Evelyn and Mark Leeper. Added the 2/24/23 issue of the Mt. Holtz Science Fiction Society Newsletter. Thanks, Evelyn and Mark.
--Opuntia, Dale Speirs. Added the late February issue. Thanks, Dale.
--Perryscope, Perry Middlemiss. Added the Feb 23 issue of Perry's perzine. Thanks, Perry!
--Phantasy Press, Dan McPhail. Added #27 (Apr 60).
--Pot Pourri, John Berry. Added #12 (May 60). This issue has photos on page 17 (that's 19 in the PDF).
--Pulsar. Added 3 issues of this, the clubzine of the Portland Science Fiction Society. Added #90 (Rosalind Malin, Apr 86), #91 (Pat Gulley, May 86), #157 (Arlene Hills-Peterson, Nov 91). Scans provided by Sam Butler. Thanks, Sam.
--Quip, Lenny Bailes and Arnie Katz. Added #1 (Fall 65), thereby completing the run.
--Random, Daphne Buckmaster. Added #1 (Sep 60), completing the run.
--ScoLar, Lars Bourne and Scotty Tapscott. Added the full 2 issue run of this 1959-60 fanzine, plus a letter from the editors.
--Sercon's Bane, F.M. Busby. Added #40 (May 69).

--STF maglet, Eva Jane Clevenger. Added 2 issues of this new to us title from 1948. The second is a little strange, as it is combined with Kar Mar (K.M. Carlson) and Nuzine (Ray Higgs) and the triplezine is only 6 pages long.
--T-Negative, Ruth Berman. Added the double issue #34-35 (Mar 79), completing the run.
--TNFF, George Phillies and Jon Swartz. Added the February issue of the The National Fantasy Fan. Thanks, George!
--Valapa, Bruce Pelz. Added 4 issues. I think this apazine is called Valapa - the title is written in Cyrillic, and Valapa is the best I can do with a transliteration. It was for ValAPA so it kind of makes sense. I tried to put this up with the file names having a Cyrillic set of characters. The server refused, my local code for prepping the index page refused. I gave up and now we have the fanzine "Valapa".
--The Zine Dump, Guy Lillian III. Added #57 (Feb 23).

PDF conversions: Degler!, Andrew Porter. Replaced the first 52 issues that we had on line with searchable PDFs. The issues are from 1964-65. OCR by Mark Olson. Thanks, Mark.

Added 6 items: Bilcyn 1 (Ken Slater, Mar 55), Ditmar Newsheet no. 1 (Peter Toluzzi, Dec 78), Etron 2 (Jim Schreiber, approx 1960), Phenotype (Dick Eney, approx 87), Shables 1 (Dave Locke and Ed Cagle, Feb 76) and Syllabus 1 (Shelby Vick, Aug 60). The Ditmar Newsheet was scanned by Irwin Hirsh. Thanks, Irwin!
--Fantasy Amateur, Seth Goldberg. Added 11 issues: #183-184, 186-194 all fromMay 83 to Feb 86. Fantasy Amateur is the Official Organ of FAPA.
--Imagination!, Russ Hodgkins. Added 4 items from the 1930s: #3 (Dec 37), 6 (Mar 38), 12 (Sep 38) and "Imagination! Rejected - Council on Controversy". It's a treat to get these online, since most of our recent uploads have been from much later decades. Contributors include: Ray Harryhausen, Julius Schwartz, Charlie Hornig, Henry Kuttner, Oswald Bradbury, T. Bruce Yerke, Forry Ackerman, and Robert Bloch. I believe "Oswald Bradbury" is a penname for Ray Bradbury.
--Kteic Magazine, Bill Rotsler. Added 2 issues: #119 (Mar 65) and #125 (Jul 65).
--MT Void, Evelyn and Mark Leeper. Added the 2/17/23 issue of the Mt. Holtz Science Fiction Society Newsletter. Thanks, Evelyn and Mark.

--Sandworm, Bob Vardeman. Added 5 issues: #5 (68), 10 (70), 14-16 (Aug 71-Jan 72).
--Wooden Nickel, Arnie Katz. Added 12 issues of this new-to-us perzine from 1973. Well, one of them is called Wooden Pickle instead - "WOODEN PICKLE Volume 1 Number 7 Whole number 7 is catering in a lewd and lascivious manner to the prurient interest of 50 high-living fans By Arnie Katz."

Corrections/Clarifications: Leer, Charles Lee Riddle. Thanks to Sandra Bond for pointing out that the Dec 56 issue was in OMPA 10. Somehow, I had missed checking Vince Clarke's OMPA listing  for its first 5 years. Thanks, Sandra!
