Monsters of the Moon was a movie trailer and a fanzine.

The trailing was "presented by 4sJ and produced by Ray Heinz and Mike Frisby" that may have been shown at some early Worldcon -- probably Pacificon. It appears to have been a script of a Flash Gordon-like adventure written in the 30s which Heinz and Frisby turned into a trailer in the hopes of creating a full film. The trailer was lost, but Heinz and Frisby retained many scraps of film which had been discarded, and Bob Tucker and Sully Roberds undertook the huge task of splicing them together into something vaguely coherent.

Ackerman produced an elaborate one-shot mimeoed fanzine for it with many stills from the reconstructed trailer and a page of explanation. The fanzine is undated, though almost certainly published int he 40s. (One authority says it was published in 1940, though that is inconsistent with it being shown at Pacificon.)
