Wally Balloo
from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
(Bob&Ray) Dave Ish explains: "Wally Balloo is a representation of the typical Seventh Fandom member. Wally edits a fine fan magazine [this was not a typical characteristiic] smokes a pipe, writes fannish articles and fiction — some good, some bad — dabbles a bit in artwork, reads MAD [and] an occasional prozine, and generally fills the bill for the average Seventh Fandomists… Wally Balloo is a composite of all Seventh Fandom big-wigs so you'll never know just which seventh fandomite is responsible for which Balloo article. If there ever was a focal point of Seventh Fandom, Wally Balloo is it." (SOL IX).
