A 6-page mimeographed fanzine produced at Cinvention, the 1949 Worldcon, by Art Rapp and Frank Dietz, who had corresponded about doing so ahead of time, with help from members of Fantasy Artisans and MSFS, including John Grossman, Bill Kroll, George Young and Erwin Stirmweis.

It was meant to be a daily newsletter, but only one issue was produced, Rapp reported in his conrep in Spacewarp 30: “We ran off 200 copies. We sold about 25. We discontinued the zine.”

He used leftover illos by Ray Nelson in his con report and offered the leftover copies for sale for 5 cents each.

It doesn’t appear to have had any official sanction from the concom.
