Anne Steul, an early German fan, read the U.S. prozines long before she was introduced to fandom by Jan Jansen. She published the first German individual fanzine, Fantum, produced an apazine, FANannIA, for OMPA, and organized (along with Greg and Jim Benford) WetzCon I, the first German science fiction convention, held in Wetzlar over the weekend of 14th and 15th January, 1956.

She attended one of the Kettering Eastercons and was one of the few German members of Loncon I. She gafiated early due to feuds with Walter Ernsting and other sercon pros and fans.

After her death, her books were donated to the Phantastische Bibliothek Wetzlar, but her relatives saw no value in her fanzine collection and threw it away.
