THEN: Science Fiction Fandom in the UK: 1930-1980

ByRob Hansen

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
FIRST BOOK PUBLICATION (hardback: pictorial boards without dustjacket). Rob Hansen is acknowledged in Brian Aldiss's autobiography, The Twinkling of an Eye, as "the historian of fanzines". This is Rob's ground-breaking history of British science fiction fandom since its first stirrings in the early 1930s. Originally published in four fanzine-format volumes from 1988 to 1993, THEN is now greatly revised, corrected and expanded by more than 20% for this first book edition, with detailed source notes, more than 300 photographs of featured fans and professionals, dozens of representative fanzine covers and a full index plus separate photo index. There is an appreciative introduction by Peter Weston, who writes: "without Rob we would know almost nothing about British fanhistory, whereas thanks to him we know just about everything ... It's a truly amazing thing, and something of a minor miracle that it ever came to be written."
