Since the 1920s, fanzines have been the traditional means for S-F fans to communicate. "All knowledge is contained in fanzines" is a popular adage. In this section, we have a selection of the popular and important fanzines of the past, as well those that were less popular and important.
Many SF professionals started by writing and publishing fanzines. People like James White, Ray Bradbury, Harlan Ellison, Robert Silverberg, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Isaac Asimov, Lois McMaster Bujold, Frederik Pohl and many others started as fans. Take a look through the zines on these pages and you will see them and many other great fanwriters like Walt Willis, Terry Carr, and Susan Wood. I guarantee you will find some great material to read.
The work of putting these on line is all done by volunteers. If you are interested in helping, send email by clicking on my name below.
