Fancyclopedia 2 was written by Dick Eney in the late 1950s, based on Fancyclopedia 1 written by Jack Speer. Their work paved the way for this site.

The entire contents of Fancy 2 has been added to Fancyclopedia 3, and the pages are categorized as Category:fancy2.

1960 Supplement[edit]

The year after Fancyclopedia 2 was published, editor Dick Eney had received enough comments and correction that he published a 19-page supplement, Additions and Corrections: Fancyclopedia II. It contained around 200 corrections and additions. It was published as Operation Crifanac CLXXVII and sold for 20 cents.

The complete supplement has been added to Fancy 3, and is online here.

The Rejected Canon[edit]

This may be two publications:

First, a 25-page, 1960 apazine for OMPA listing material material from Fancy 1 which Eney proposed to leave out of Fancy 2.

And, second, a 16-page, 1962 one-shot by Eney containing entries from Fancyclopedia 1 he did leave out of Fancy 2, online here.


1968 abridged edition, online here.
