Etherline

From Fancyclopedia 3
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Fanzine mostly arranged and edited by Ian J. Crozier, and produced by Mervyn Binns. (At least one issue was edited by Lee Harding, as Leo J. Harding.)

The name "Ether-line", inspired by a column in Startling Stories, had been used by Lee Harding as the name of a news column in the first issue of Perhaps.

Etherline began as a newszine of Amateur Fantasy Publications of Australia, incorporating news from the Melbourne Science Fiction Group, which was to become the Melbourne Science Fiction Club (MSFC).

Etherline later became a clubzine of the MSFC.

Issue 6 of iOTA reproduces the covers of several issues of Etherline.
