I finished a new issue of the magazine-format File 770 at the end of July and sent it to Bill Burns for posting at eFanzines. Unfortunately, I hadn’t announced the new issue here before I was overtaken by medical problems and swept off to the hospital. The issue has been stealthily waiting online until I returned to tell Filers it exists.

File 770 #166 has excellent original material.
John Hertz interviews Ctein about The Saturn Run, his first fiction book with John Sandford.
Dave Doering does truly impressive detective work to identify the New York City site of the first Worldcon — Caravan Hall – using historic photos.
And John Hertz’ “The Worldcon I Saw” reports in detail about Sasquan, the 2015 World Science Fiction Convention in Spokane.
I also reprinted one of my favorite feature articles by the late James H. Burns, “Once, When We All Were Scientists,” and two others deserving another read, “Crusader Clifford Clinton and His Cafeteria, Clifton’s” by John Hertz, and “File Still Open: A Celebration of a Newsletter” by Taral Wayne.
Taral also did the cover art, and Jose Sanchez the back cover.
Now that the issue is no longer the worst kept secret on the internet, I hope you will take a look at it and enjoy reading these articles, as well as the other features.
