Up to Now was the very first history of science fiction fandom, written by Jack Speer covering the 1930s up to 1939.

It was first published in Full Length Articles 2 in June 1939 and distributed in through FAPA and at NYCon I. In 1962, it was reprinted in Dick Eney's A Sense of FAPA and again in 1994 in a 100-copy run by Arcturus Press.

Up to Now covers such highlights of the 1930s as First Staple War, the ISA-SFL Clash, numbered fandoms, and Wollheim and Michel, seen, of course, through Speer's biases. It is an excellent contrast with Moskowitz's The Immortal Storm.
