The Eye of Argon
Jump to navigation Jump to search
An epic fantasy novella written by Jim Theis, aged 16, published in Osfan 10 in 1970. Widely regarded as a dreadful piece of writing, this fan fiction was circulated unofficially, frequently without attribution, through fandom, and often used at convention Turkey Readings, a practice kicked off by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro.
