Quizzes
from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
Ordinarily presented in fanzines without offer of prizes, except maybe the egoboo of mention in the next issue. Sometimes quizzes are part of membership requirements of organizations, and in the SFL they gained the degree of B Stf. Quiz questions may be about the present or past of pro writings, fandom, or science. Speer gives an example: "With what issue did Wonder Stories go large size for the second time and what was the cover-copper on that issue?" More recently quizzes have been answered in a different part of the fanzine where they appear; here, obviously, the egoboo of being right is all in all, as in mundane magazines' quizzes. A variation on the classic quiz was introduced by John Berry, a professional police officer; the "Who'd Be a Goon?" series offered complete fannishly-oriented mysteries, with all clues 'n everything supplied. Object was the explain the conclusions reached from the evidence supplied.

Quiz questions may be about the present or past of pro fantasy, fandom, or science, but usually include such ones as "With what issue did Wonder Stories go large size for the second time and what was the cover-copper on that issue?" and similar highly useful information.
