Ratfandom

A generation of SF fans who came together in London in the early Seventies. Characterized in their early days by their iconoclastic attitude, and occasionally uninhibited language. They are more respectable now… The members are also known as rats. Core members of Ratfandom included John Brosnan, Graham Charnock, Pat Charnock (whose fanzine was Wrinkled Shrew), Malcolm Edwards, Rob Holdstock, Leroy Kettle (whose fanzine was True Rat) and Greg Pickersgill.

The name was first coined by Roy Kettle for fans associated with the fanzine Fouler.
