A kind of fanzine that consists entirely of letters of comment. One of the first and best known was Vom, edited by Forry Ackerman, which began with the publication of the letter column of Imagination (a fanzine put out by the young Ray Bradbury) – "Vom" standing for Voice Of the ‘Magination. Although the practice died away in general fanzine fandom, the National Fantasy Fan Federation published a letterzine for its members, called at different times Postwarp and Postie.
