Lots of fanzines arrived, several while I was away from my computer, so I have not had a chance myself to read them all. The Kommandeur is new to me–a clubzine for AHIKS, which looks to be a club for gamers. It LOOKS good, but more than that I am not qualified to say.
Leybl Botwinik’s Cyber Cozen is WARP’s penpal. I was intrigued by his review of The Seven Sisters , AKA What Happened to Monday?.
Alexiad has reviews of books, conventions, movies, comics, as well as other news and articles.
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.
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
