A fanzine co-edited by Ted White and Larry Stark in 1956–57 and distributed at times in OMPA and FAPA. It started as Zip, edited by Ted White. Starting with issue eight in 1956, the name changed to Stellar and Larry Stark joined as co-editor (but White continued publishing a much smaller apazine under the name Zip) Stellar published twenty-three issues ending in 1958 when it was re-titled Gambit. At some point it was combined with Gafia and Dimensions as well.
Writing in Vegas Fandom Weekly, in "What Are The Greatest Fanzines?", Arnie Katz writes, "Stellar...established Faan Fiction (fiction about fans) as a genre and also explored new frontiers of multi-color mimeography. Stellar presented both classic reprints and new stories that attempted to bring the values of fiction to stories about fans and Fandom."
(Interestingly, White re-used the name Zip and the Zip numbering in 1956 for several issues as a small apazine.)
Some issues were actually columns in other fanzines.
