|From Fancyclopedia 1 ca 1944
|(Speer) - The period of fandom from the decline of Fantasy Magazine in later 1936 to the Third Convention. It was marked by a shift of interest from the pro field, then in a recession, to the fans themselves. There was consequently more fan news in the fanzines, a plethora of organizations, many new fanzines proposed and executed, and talk about things having little relation to s-f but interesting to the fans. There were fewer people in the fan field than previously. No organization or fan magazine held recognized leadership after the dissolution of the ISA, tho the SFA was regarded as the best.
Also called the First Interregnum. See Numerical Fandoms for much more.
