(For other entries on nothingness, see Void (Disambiguation).)
Void was first published in the 50s, Jim and Greg Benford published the earliest issues, up through #13, when Jim dropped out. Thereafter, starting in 1959 there was a changing series of co-editors, though the actual publishing chores were taken on by Ted White who joined as co-editor with issue 14 in 1958. By 1961 Terry Carr and Pete Graham had joined and Carr merged his own fanzine Innuendo with Void. During this last period, Void had become one of the best genzines being published.
The fifth anniversary issue, dubbed the 'VANNISH', was so large, it had to be mailed out in three installments. There was also an issue, dubbed the 'WAWISH' that was devoted to Walt Willis which launched the 10th Anniversary Willis Fund that resulted in Walt and Madeleine Willis coming to America for the 1962 Worldcon, ten years after Walt's first trip
The end came rather suddenly. Issue #28 was published in early 1962, and then nothing for five years. Ted White, who had been publishing the fanzine from his Towner Hall apartment and mimeo shop in Manhattan, moved to Brooklyn, and became involved in other fan activities. The last issue, #29, was published by White after about a 5-year hiatus.
