Available to Order


In 1960, Earl set forth these questions: 1.) Do you feel that magazine science fiction is dead? 2.) Do you feel that any single person, action, incident, etc., is responsible for the present situation? If not, what is responsible? 3.) What can we do to correct it? 4.) Should we look to the original paperback as a point of salvation? 5.) What additional remarks, pertinent to the study, would you like to contribute? Who answered? A panorama of authors and fans from across the history of the field including Ray Bradbury, Howard DeVore, Poul Anderson, Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Andre Norton, Kurt Vonnegut, John W. Campbell, Horace Gold, Marion Zimmer Bradley, and many more. Originally published in SaFari Annual #1 (which was awarded a Hugo in 1961 as Best Fanzine) this is the only official print edition, now updated, compleat, and unexpurgated.
