A clubzine published by the Liverpool Group in the 1950s. It had a number of editors, including Norman L. Shorrock, John Roles and Tom Owens. The editors apparently referred to themselves as the Space Divers, the Space Dive being the rented cellar the LaSFaS used as a clubroom.
In July of *52 the first issue of SPACE DIVERSIONS appeared. Co-edited by John Roles and Tom Owens, produced by David Gardner and Norman Shorrock. The magazine published some pretty good material from the first issue. A Symposium on Sex and Sadism in S‑F, hit the fannish headlines of the times, and was later published in one volume. The contents were generally fairly equally divided between comment and conjecture on s‑f, and the fannish goings on. Issue No.7 had 108 pages and it*s probably not purely coincidental that shortly, after this issue SD passed, temporarily, into limbo.
