Editorial Reviews


.,."this is a book for which we have to be thankful. Science Fiction Fandom will make a fine starting point for any student of SF who wants to know what fandom is about."-Asimov's

Book Description

Many prominent science fiction writers, artists, and editors began as s.f. fans. This is the first book to survey fandom's history, its worldwide manifestations, and its range of accomplishments, including clubs, fanzines, and conventions. These essays explain fandom as a social phenomenon and describe its contributions to modern science fiction.

Format: Hardcover
I'm going to review, not the book, but its dubious claim as "the first" book on fandom. Since I have about five titles on my shleves that predate this title. ALL OUR YESTERDAYS, A WEALTH OF FABLE--both by Harry Warner Jr., THE IMMORTAL STORM, by Sam Moskowitz, THE FUTURIANS by Damon Knight, and AH! SWEET IDIOCY, by F. Towner Laney. There are a few others that I don't recall right now.

I'll remove my review after the information is corrected.
