prozine n. 1972 R. Nelson Introduction to Time Travel for Pedestrians in H. Ellison Again, Dangerous Visions 139 Feuds, the National Fantasy Fan Federation, letters to the prozines, mimeo ink under the fingernails, dreams of the Hugo while high on corflu (which you actually have gotten, at last, old superfan), articles typed straight on stencils, frightful poems and worse fannish imitation pro fiction, costumes at cons and musical beds, hateful monster movies that we just can’t resist, Seventh Fandom, talking philosophy all night in greasy spoons, and that whole wild scene.
