Texas SF Inquirer

An 80s fanzine sponsored by FACT and mainly edited by Pat Mueller which served as a newszine with a strong Texas focus. It was nominated for the 1987 Best Fanzine Hugo and won the 1988 Best Fanzine Hugo. Some issues edited by Alexander Slate may have been co-edited by Laurel Slate. Pat Mueller married Dennis Verzi on Oct. 11, 1986, but continued listing herself as "Pat Mueller" for this fanzine (at least through issue #19). Most exact dates of editorial transitions are unknown to us. Christina Lake's TAFF report ("The Caprician 4") writes of the Hugo award, and the first editor: "Excitement in the Texas contingent reached fever pitch when Pat Mueller's Texas SF Inquirer won best fanzine (vindicating her against the forces of evil in the Texas group who'd taken the editorship of the fanzine away from her)."
