(Did you mean a Robert Lichtman fanzine?)


Esperanto for etc., and used as an avoidance for it throughout Fancy 1 and Fancy 2, interspersed with usw (und so weiter), the German equivalent. Some fen prefer &c., which is something of a demolishism.

From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
(Speer) Kaj tiel plu; Esperanto and so forth, equivalent to Latin etc and Deutsche usw.

from Fancyclopedia 2 Supplement ca. 1960: 'Twas the Esparantist Ackerman, not Speer, who introduced this. The reason for having all these variations on and-so-forth is that fen, steeped in null-a thinking, realizing that most listings are incomplete perforce, and would tend to overuse etc were there no substitutes for it. Incidentally, Korzybski also used ., and ,. as devices of similar meaning.
