An important collection of fanzines and related materials. Spanning the era from early fandom to the end of the 20th Century. US and UK, mostly. An incongruous group, as to be expected. Mostly incomplete runs or single issues, but covering a large number of the genre's authors, some of which are included below. I admit, the cataloguing is less than complete. My intention was to outline this fully, but that intention flaked away like the cheap paper these fanzines are made of. A number of items wouldn't be classed as fanzines, but this is the collection as purchased so they're included for integrity and for the buyer to determine their position. Again, this is by no means a complete or curated collection. More of an amassing, but important nonetheless for research into the genre. Many items are not currently available for sale on the market.
