It won the 1973 Best Fanzine Hugo and was nominated for the 1971 Best Fanzine Hugo and the 1972 Best Fanzine Hugo.

When Glicksohns' marriage broke up, Energumen also ended with issue #15 in 1973, but planning for a special issue was already well under way at the time of Susan Wood's sudden death in 1980. Issue 16 (Just When You Thought It was Safe to Bind Your Fanzines) was published by Glicksohn in September 1981.
