THRUST
   US SEMIPROZINE, originally a FANZINE, advertised as quarterly but in the past often irregular; ed D. Douglas Fratz, \#1 Jan 1973 as magazine of the Maryland Science Fiction Society; it became independent 1977, at whichtime Fratz stopped publishing fiction and established the blend of interviews, articles and reviews, emphasizing controversy and argument, which has continued since. Always one of the solider journals of commentary on sf and fantasy, and one of the longest-lasting, T has been 4 times nominated for a HUGO (1980, 1988, 1989, 1990). Beginning with \#36, Spring 1990, T changed its name to Quantum: Science Fiction and FantasyReview without major changes to style or format; and in \#42, Summer/Fall 1992, Fratz announced that the magazine would end with \#43/44. This last edition, a double-sized 20th anniversary issue, appeared in 1993. Writers associated with T have included Michael BISHOP, George Alec EFFINGER, Darrell SCHWEITZER and Ted WHITE.
