The Science Fiction Fan
A late-1930s, early-’40s fanzine published by Olon F. Wiggins, often called SFFan or just SFF. It was part of Cosmic Publications, and featured Sam Moskowitz, Don Wollheim, and Jack Speer as contributors. Many of Speer's IPO polls were distributed in SFFan. The contents tended to be mostly factual articles and essays, but there was some fiction. It was the largest fanzine of its era.
Both Wollheim and Moskowitz were listed as contributing editors through September 1938. Wiggins (living in Denver) seems to have tried to steer clear of the New York City feuds between them, though perhaps favoring the Moskowitz side, but in September, he announced that he would no longer by publishing anything by SaM and thereafter the fanzine was dominated by the Futurians.
