Zines to share!

If you publish on blogs, websites, Facebook, etc., a good closing line is always “Like SF? I belong to the N3F http://N3F.org and you should, too.” not to mention “N3F? Public memberships are free.”

Leading people to Fanac is good. Our wonderful Welcommittee does its share, but more voices in this direction would be positive. Speaking up (e.g., Letters of Comment) for activities you would like to see, and do not, would be positive.

Best,
George Phillies
President, N3F

George sends us copies of two zines this week–Mt Void and Revenge of Hump Day. He also passes on copies of our own WARP, which is much appreciated by yours truly!  –CPL

INTERESTING TIMES 6
Garth Spencer asks: What is the difference between primary resource companies and kindergarten pupils?  Answer: Kindergarten children clean up after themselves. To which I have to respond: Only when threatened with missing recess…so really not all that different;  just a different threat required, such as one that bites them in the pocket.

VIBRATOR 38  :  Ooo La La it’s your latest fix of fandom’s most regular fanzine, Vibrator 38 Torn from the massive mountain of personal experience and chiselled down to a few shards which tantalizingly hint at its final meeting. Like Arrival it is a fanzine to be deciphered and savoured and then forgotten. Discard it on the junk pile of history but first of all be sure to write a loc. It may be your last chance for fannish immortality. This issue is dedicated to Cas Skeleton’s westie called Bestie, because he is seriously ill and desevres to get better. Open this file now and prepare to be amazed. Well, amused.     — Graham Charnock
