Willis E. McNelly Science Fiction Collection: Fanzine Samples

 Collection
Identifier: SC-2019-09

Scope and Contents

The Science Fiction Fanzine Sample collection is comprised of 82 titles, and a total of 116 individual fanzine issues. Although related to Science Fiction Periodicals, fanzines were developed by fans of Science Fiction (along with other genres and topics). Sometimes a zine brought a small group of fans together, other times it was a source of cultural exchange for the masses. But zines all have one common element: the celebration and exploration of science fiction and other genres.
