Rhodomagnetic Digest

From Fancyclopedia 3
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A fanzine originally published between 1949 and 1951, originally by the Elves, Gnomes, and Little Men's Chowder, Science Fiction, and Marching Society, but the publication caused so much dissension within the organization, that it ceased to be the clubzine and the fanzine went off on its own. (See Bay Area for the discussion in Fancyclopedia 2.) It was revived for three issues in 1962 by Al haLevy.

Rhodomagnetism was a fictional science from Jack Williamson's The Humanoids, and (as "rhodomagnetics") his earlier novelette "With Folded Hands ...".

The six issues of Volume 1 were edited by George T. Blumenson, the six of Volume 2 were edited by Don Fabun and Donald Baker Moore, and Volume 3 by Don Fabun alone.

A detailed, retrospective review by Jon D. Swartz of the March, 1951, issue (Volume II, Number 5) was published in Scientifiction: The First Fandom Report for Spring, 2003.
