A Fanthology or Collection is a quick way to find some of the best writing in fandom. A fanthology might be themed or it might be for a particular year or perhaps from a specific publication (Sense of FAPA). A collection, of course, is a selection of the writing from a particular fanwriter, like the Best of Susan Wood, edited by Jerry Kaufman.
The Fan History Project will be providing classic as well as contemporary publications of both types. We are starting with a new electronic anthology Roadtripping with the Wheels of IF edited by 2019 TAFF candidate Geri Sullivan. This is a showcase of her interactions with the legendary writers from Irish Fandom.
In this new section on FANAC.org, we will be including many classic and renowned publications. See below for complete versions of Richard Eney's massive fanthology A Sense of FAPA, and the Best of Susan Wood. Many more will be coming soon.
There will also be feschrifts, appreciations and analyses, like Edie Stern's Happy Birthday, LeeH! and Terry Carr's The Stormy Petrol.
Find them all below.
