Algol

A fanzine subtitled "The Magazine About Science Fiction" which was published from 1963-1984 by Andy Porter. Its name was changed to Starship in 1979.

It won the 1974 Best Fanzine Hugo (tied with Richard E. Geis' Science Fiction Review) and was nominated for the Best Fanzine Hugo in 1973, 1975, 1976, and 1981. (It received enough votes to be on the final ballot for Best Semiprozine in 1984, but was withdrawn by the editor.)

Columnists at various times included Ted White, Richard A. Lupoff, Susan Wood, Vincent Di Fate, Robert Silverberg, Frederik Pohl, Joe Sanders and Bhob Stewart.

It began as two-page fanzine printed by spirit duplicator, moved to offset covers, then added mimeographed contents, and ultimately became a slickly printed publication with the 16th issue, going to full color covers featuring professional artwork with the 24th. Circulation peaked at around 7,000.
