(1) A LASFS Fanzine
A fanzine started in 1940 to replace Imagination! which had ceased publication. Initially, it was a communal affair with no one listed as editor, then with Walt Daugherty as editor. Three issues were published, then it disappeared in 1942, claiming that it had changed its name to Shangri-L'Affaires. After the first 38 issues of Shangri-L'Affairs, Walt Daugherty became the editor and changed the name to Shangri-LA for the next 35 issues, before it once again changed back to "Shangri-L'Affaires". See Shangri-L'Affaires for issue listings of these two series.

(2) A Nickname for Shangri-L'Affaires
Shangri-LA was a shortened form of the name of the fanzine Shangri-L'Affaires used starting in the late 40s. Issue 13, April 1944, uses the longer name. Issue 14 (mislabeled as issue 10 on the cover, but correct on the table of contents), October 1949, uses the shorter name. Some issues used the shortened name exclusively. Editors included Dave Ossman and Bill Mosleigh.
