JD-Argassy

An irregular fanzine devoted to the pulps and edited by Lynn Hickman. It was 8½ X 11 inches, and stapled. There were at least 60 issues and many were distributed through OMPA. A pulp collectors' site calls it "a nice resource for the serious collector."

It was nominated for the 1959 Best Fanzine Hugo and the 1960 Best Fanzine Hugo.

It's history is a bit complicated, being the merger of JD and Argassy.

Variant titles: J D Argassy, JD-A {What does the title mean?}
