This post inaugurates a new category, “Poor Trufan’s Almanack.” These fanhistorical articles will bring to the net information I’ve found that fills in gaps in the electronically-available research.
Commonly, this will be data I happen upon in paper fanzines that simply never made it to the web. I will park the data here and extend an open invitation for fans to copy it to the appropriate long lists. Less commonly, I will examine a controversial bit of fanhistory and make my case for interpreting it a certain way.
The initial posts in this category are the noncontroversial kind.
I noticed some time ago that Corflu’s FAAn Awards history page lacks entries for the 1978 winners of the two artist categories. The complete data was published in various issues of the old newzine DNQ, edited by Victoria Vayne and Taral, which I recently reread.
The data appears following the jump.
