WARHOON


WARHOON
   US FANZINE (1952-85), ed from New York and Puerto Rico by Richard Bergeron. From undistinguished early issues, W became a large, attractive, duplicated fanzine containing careful and literate articles on sf and FANDOM. John BAXTER, James BLISH and Robert A.W. LOWNDES were among theregular sf columnists, and Terry CARR, Bob SHAW, Harry WARNER Jr and Walt Willis were fan columnists. Occasional contributors included Robert BLOCH,Harlan ELLISON and Ted WHITE. In 1980 (though dated 1978), 10 years after \#27, \#28 was published; this was a 600+pp hardbound collection of the writings of Willis since 1947. It was almost certainly the largest fanzine issue ever published, its size being the reason for the hiatus. There were 3 further issues to June 1985. In 1962 W won a HUGO as Best Fanzine.
