(Did you mean a fanzine by Mal Ashworth?)

The Amor de Cosmos People's Memorial Quiet-Revolutionary Susanzine was a perzine of Susan Wood. Issue 18 included the note that there had been 20 issues: the two extra issues are 2.5 and her slightly earlier perzine A Letter/Letter A. From issue 1: "...(for the benefit of filing-freaks like Auntie Rosemary at library school and Paul Anderson, count "a letter" as a trial run for AMOR, okay?)" -- seems to be what she wanted.
