(Are you looking for the Austin Hamel fanzine?)

A fanzine co-edited by Ted White and Larry Stark in 1956-57. It started as Zip, edited by Ted White. Starting with issue eight in 1956, the name changed to Stellar and Larry Stark joined as co-editor. Stellar published twenty-three issues ending in 1957 when it was re-titled Gambit.

Writing in Vegas Fandom Weekly, in "What Are The Greatest Fanzines?", Arnie Katz writes, "Stellar...established Faan Fiction (fiction about fans) as a genre and also explored new frontiers of multi-color mimeography. Stellar presented both classic reprints and new stories that attempted to bring the values of fiction to stories about fans and Fandom."
