Derelict Derogations

A particular style of fan article, first written in the 1950s by Boyd Raeburn in his fanzine A Bas, but later done to similar effect by others. The Raeburn version tended to revolve around (if not actually serving as the minutes of) fictional meetings of the Derelict Insurgents and Tommy Steele Record Boiling Society, in which actual quotes of contemporary fans were taken out of context and woven into fanciful satirical fictional “dialogues“. John D. Berry a.k.a. the American John Berry was one of the better practitioners after Raeburn stopped writing them.
