(Did you mean a Walter Shedlofsky fanzine?)

From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
Aside from the distinctions between fans and stfnists, and trufans and confans, the super-active group is sometimes considered separately. Inner Circle fans may be considered as those who subscribe to a significant fraction of all fanzines, including all the leading ones; who correspond with other leading fans; publish one or several fanzines; play politics and perform duties in fan organizations; promote activities such as fan gatherings; and author many pieces published in others' fanzines. They are the ones who at a given time may be considered essential to fandom's continued existence. In fandomwide polls the top ten fans should all come from this group.
