(Did you mean a BEM or a Vic Waldrop fanzine?)

(1) A BEM

An intelligent creature from another world. Possibly a BEM.

(2) A Fanzine

A fanzine published by Harry Nadler and Charles Partington from 1963 to 1965. (Issues 1-9 list Tony Edwards and Tom Holt as co-editors.) The last two issues were titled "Alien Worlds". A final single-sheet four-page issue, titled LAST ISSUE on the front cover, reported that production problems had prevented the intended issue 16 from being distributed at the London Worldcon in late August 1965. It also noted that Alien Worlds would have been ceasing publication with that missing issue, to be replaced with a professional fiction magazine of the same title. One issue of this new magazine was published in 1966 as Alien Worlds No. 1.
