QUANDRY
   US FANZINE (1950-53), 30 issues, ed from Georgia by Lee HOFFMAN.

Contributors included Walt Willis (1919-), Robert SILVERBERG, Wilson TUCKER, Robert BLOCH and James WHITE. Hoffman still publishes, butno longer edits, Science Fiction Five Yearly, the fanzine holding the record for the longest gaps between regular issues, founded 1951, \#9 in 1991; it shares many contributors with Q.
