A fanzine edited by Boyd Raeburn in the mid-50s as a publication of the Derelict Insurgents. It was originally to be a one-shot sent to the subscribers to Canadian Fandom. The first issue was a group effort involving Boyd Raeburn, Albert Lastovica, Howard Lyons, Ron Kidder, Gerald Steward and Kenneth G. Hall, but the rest of the issue were by Raeburn alone. It was a CAFP fanzine.

It was nominated for the 1956 Best Fanzine Hugo.

One of its features was the Derelicti Derogations. My Fair Femmefan was first published in A Bas.
