(Did you mean a Redd Boggs fanzine?)

From Fancyclopedia 1, ca. 1944
(Lowndes) - One who is interested in a different and better future world order, and the details of its inauguration and functioning; suggested as a term distinct from Futurian as used herein, tho its parallel in the Futurian Leagues is obvious

Note that this meaning did not catch on, and futurist now has the mundane meaning of someone who studies and tries to predict the future through non-occult means.

This is a fanspeak page. Please extend it by adding information about when and by whom it was coined, whether it’s still in use, etc.
