Ankündigung: Pictorial History of Science Fiction Fanzines

Cover The Interpretation of Zines: A Pictorial History of Science Fiction Fanzines, AmazonFür Juli 2013 ist das Buch "The Interpretation of Zines: A Pictorial History of Science Fiction Fanzines" von Luis Ortiz bei Nonstop Press angekündigt.

Verlagstext: "A remarkable journey through the development of a popular subculture, from its earliest fans in the 1930s who used primitive desktop-printing technology to create amateur zines mimicking newsstand magazines to more recent zines dedicated to media science fiction, this chronicle of sci-fi fandom is a unique, eccentric, and richly entertaining look at the genre. This visual compendium showcases the best, most interesting, and strangest fanzines ever produced and provides the historical background of their development and detailed information on the writers and artists involved in their creation. From Ray Bradbury and Gene Simmons to Stephen King and Roger Ebert, the work of famous sci-fi zinesters is explored as well as all the marginal ephemera from a once isolated little genre that has now gained worldwide recognition and acceptance".
