Fred Hurter

Hurter was a Canadian fan in the 1930s-1940s.

He was a founding member of The National Fantasy Fan Federation (N3F) in 1941 and in 1942, he formed the abortive Canadian Amateur Fantasy Press, designed to unite and promote fanzines.

Also in 1941 he produced Censored for the first time. It was probably Canada's third fanzine and the first to appear in an APA. He originally named it Rocket and ran off a cover with that title in 1941. When he learned that Walt Daugherty had already published a fanzine with that name, he lettered "CENSORED" over the title. With some assistance from Beak Taylor, he published it for a couple years, suspended it, and revived it; it lived into the new decade.
