(Did you mean the Alan Shaw fanzine?)

From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
(Brazier:Joquel) Abbreviation for fanzine. Pronounced "femz" but distinguished from "femmes" by accompanying the latter word with a whistle and descriptive gesture.

While it is an abbreviation for fanzine, it actually comes from "Fan MagaZine".
