A single-sheet, mimeographed one-shot piece of faan fiction mailed anonymously from Washington, DC, in June 1934, which told about a fight on the eve of the year 2001 in which H. C. Koenig, Julius Schwartz, Franklin Lee Baldwin, W. Paul Cook, and Forrest J Ackerman appeared under thinly disguised names.

It was the earliest known piece of faan fiction and is attributed to H. P. Lovecraft, although he denied authorship, with addenda by R. H. Barlow.
