Rusty Hevelin’s collection of pulps, fanzines and books went to the University of Iowa after his death. Now the librarians are sharing what they’re discovering as they open the boxes. You’ll find these snapshots from the history of science fiction at Tumblr — http://hevelincollection.tumblr.com
Highlights so far include:
- A 1941 issue of The Fantasite, the Minneapolis Fantasy Society zine, with material by Rusty (“Rustebar”) and Bob Tucker;
- Science Fiction Echo #21, edited by Ed Connor (1974), with a Tim Kirk cover and letters by Robert Bloch and Ursula K. Le Guin; and
- Two fanzines notable for their material by Ray Bradbury — an issue of The Damn Thing featuring Ray’s cover art and a short story, and a copy of Ray’s own Futuria Fantasia with a Hannes Bok cover.
