a letter written to a magazine, esp. a fanzine
[< letter Of Comment]
The first contributor of an accepted news item (not a COA) is entitled to a free issue, as are all other Good People who send in locs, cartoons, etc.
Available for Trade, LoC, Contribution, goodwill (rarely) or even money.
We still need lots of LoC’s on TWJ #82 for the TWJ #83 lettercol.
The LOC + 30p in stamps to get the next issue seems to be working well.
Dealers try to sell me at inflated prices copies of something I happen to have mentioned in a loc.
A letter of comment, or loc—pronounced ‘lock’—may be thought of as a letter to the publication, for publication.
