The National Fantasy Fan

Started as Bonfire shortly after the club was founded in 1941, our clubzine “official organ” has been called The National Fantasy Fan since 1945. Over our near-century of existence, records have been lost, so we no longer have a complete set of The National Fantasy Fan. The fanzines seen here include zines issued electronically and zines recovered from a variety of sources, notably FANAC.org from Joe Siclari and Edie Stern.
