The Visual History of Science Fiction Fandom
Volume One: The 1930s

“It’s as fine a non-fiction work produced by and for fandom as has ever come down the pike and I urge everyone to take a gander – especially those who would argue that cos-play is a relatively new phenomenon.
Steve Davidson, Editor, Amazing Stories

How did organized science fiction fandom begin?  Who were the pioneering fans that created the foundation of today’s massive science fiction and fantasy industry? What would it have been like to be a fan of this transformative genre in the 1930s?

The Visual History of Science Fiction Fandom recounts the stories of the first active science fiction fans — pioneers who went on to lead the growth of speculative literature for the next several decades. Over 500 lavishly illustrated pages, this engaging and authoritative first volume documents organized fandom’s origin in the 1930s and includes:

  • Never-before-seen fan-created artifacts from the time
  • New, detailed narrative that offers fresh perspective on the story
  • Original graphic novel and illustrated segments that bring to life key scenes from the history

“What an overwhelming presentation! This is a very important work.  FFE has done an excellent job of presenting a complex subject.”
Mark Wheatley, Breathtaker, Doctor Cthulittle, Song of Giants
