Femizine, nicknamed Fez, was supposedly an all-femmefan fanzine published in turn by “Joan W. Carr” (a hoax fan), Pam Bulmer, and Ethel Lindsay. But Carr was actually a man, Sandy Sanderson.

14 Summer 1960 20 Ron Bennett’s review: “When so many fanzines are beating one another over the eds trying to become the Focal Point of fandom, it’s pleasing to receive a fanzine which possesses such a marked degree of informality. For some reason I’m wildly reminded of Georgina EllisWendigo, and it’s about time we had another fanzine like that. Ethel is backed up by Bjo Wells (who introduces Elinor Busby, my favourite Fan-I-said-hello-to-but-little-more-to) and Ina Shorrock (who introduces husband Norman). Janey Johnston writes on cats, Juanita Coulson writes on Charles Eric Maine and Margaret Picken and Sheila Ashworth report on the Liverpool party over New Year. Joy Clarke reviews fanzines in microelite. A short letter column makes up an enjoyable issue.”
