(Did you mean a different Fanfare?)

The clubzine of The Stranger Club of Boston in the early 1940s. Ten issues were published by the club, with Francis Paro, Louis Russell Chauvenet, Earl Singleton, Art Widner and Tony Lewis all editing issues.

To commemorate The Stranger Club's being the Fan Guest of Honor of Noreascon Three in 1989, the convention arranged for Fanfare 11 to be published (after a hiatus of only 46 years). At the convention, Sam Moskowitz came up to the table where copies were being sold and showed his file card showing that his subscription still had issues to run and asked if he could pick it up or if the convention planned to mail it.
