I've long wondered what zines' fanzine predecessors looked like. Finally, through the son of a friend of my father, I've managed to see one--or a modern incarnation of one at least. APA-50 was born in 1974 and its membership was originally limited to those born after 1974 and was meant for science fiction fans as a venue for their own contributions to the genre. Per the introduction, each member's contribution is called a zine (or an ish), and all of the contributions compiled is a mailing. The most viable link I found for the APA is appropriately an Angelfire site. I'm not sure how private the contents are since membership is small, and my copy was sent on spec that I might consider joining, so I'll keep my contents somewhat general.
Week 51, December 23, 2009 on LCSH Watch:
- Beards (Islamic law)
- Cell phone etiquette
- Cooperating teachers
- Female juvenile delinquents in literature
- Gay political refugees
- Marijuana in motion pictures
- Weiss beer
- Wheat beer
Excitement and Adventure is such a librarian zine! It's basically a fanzine about prohibition era gangsters, which Lacey researched with abandon at the Minnesota Historical Society.
Since this is kind of important to me, I'm ignoring the rest of Week 35 to focus on what I think was a spectacularly dumbass decision.
