Irish Publications


The Wheels of IF (IF=Irish Fandom) were ghiants. They were not just important locally, but in the U.S. as well. They influenced and interacted with fans all over the world. They inspired the creating of fan funds. Fandom rotated on the Belfast/Savannah Axis. They published focal point fanzines like Hyphen and Quandry. They created legends like the Fort Mudge Steam Calliope & Locomotive Company and Proxyboo Ltd. We’re starting with issues of the Walt Willis fanzines Hyphen, Peace on Sol III, and Slant. There will be Goons, Glass Bushels and Random AToms. This index will link you to notable fanzines and one-shots published by Irish fandom.
