(Did you mean a Andy Anderson fanzine?)

A fannish column written by Walt Willis in the prozine Nebula from 1952 to 1959. The first twelve instalments were titled "The Electric Fan", a title Willis disliked; thereafter they reverted to "Fanorama", his original choice of name.

After Nebula folded, one further column (which had been orphaned by the fold) appeared in Psi Phi. Willis later revived the column for Speculation in 1964, where it ran for four final instalments before ceasing following negative reaction from some newer fans of the day, in particular Charles Platt.

All forty-five columns were collected in a fanzine of the same name by Robert Lichtman in November 1998, and as an Ansible Editions ebook in June 2017.
