In 1954 Inside merged with Science Fiction Advertiser resulting in the imaginatively named Inside and Science Fiction Advertiser which won the 1956 Best Fanzine Hugo. In 1957 it changed its title to Inside Science Fiction and went into hiatus in 1958. In 1962 it revived for three issues under the title Inside with editor Jon White and assistant editor Ron Smith.
The final issue with the Inside name appeared as Inside-Riverside Quarterly, under a new editor, Leland Sapiro, who renamed the zine Riverside Quarterly. The first issue of Riverside Quarterly appeared in August 1964. The last issue of Riverside Quarterly appeared in August 1993.
Sapiro was an acquaintance of Jon White, the final editor of Inside and was brought in as a partner. He was extremely helpful in getting the final two issues published, both in providing material and covering some of the printing costs and in the summer of 1964, White turned the fanzine entirely over to Sapiro.
Sapiro preferred a new name of Riverside Quarterly, and that summer's issue was titled, transitionally, Inside/Riverside Quarterly. The new title came from Riverside Drive in New York, the location of a famous fan abode (see Riverside Dive) in the 50s. The first issue of RQ came out in 1964, and the numbering was restarted at V1N1. It continued publication, at times sporadically, into the 1990s under Sapiro before it eventually became extinct.
The contents tended to be quasi-academic and fairly dry.
