A fanzine by Raymond Fisher which started in the 1940s and, with a hiatus between 1951 and 1966, was still being published in the ’60s, and had at least eighteen issues. Richard Elsberry and Joyce M. Fisher co-edited some issues. It was one of the more respected genzines of the ’60s and was nominated for the 1968 Best Fanzine Hugo.
