Classic and Older Fanzines (before 1980)

Since "all knowledge is contained in fanzines", eventually we will have it all here. Well, maybe not quite. But we do intend to put online as many fanzines as we can. In this section we will focus on zines published before 1980.

We will provide a selection of the popular and important fanzines of fandom's past and also some other representative fanzines from their period.

Take a look through the zines on these pages. There is some great fanwriting and some other materials that may surprise you.


Convert your old zines to text and send them to us. Or you can get to read some great old fanzines by volunteering to type or scan some zines! All of this work is done by volunteers. This is a fun place for you to help. If you want to help, send email to me by clicking on my name below.
