File770.com is the online version of Mike Glyer’s science fiction fan newzine, reporting on fanzines, sf clubs, conventions, fan funds and fanac. File 770 is named for the party in Room 770 at the 1951 Worldcon that upstaged the convention.
File 770 began life as a mimeographed fanzine in 1978, then joined the desktop publishing revolution in the 1990’s. A File 770 website, reproducing paper issues as webzines, was hosted at CompuServe’s Ourworld community from 2000 until the community was shut down in 2009. Screen captures of the website are available on the Wayback Machine. File 770 produced paper issues every year from 1978 through 2016. eFanzines.com began hosting PDF versions of the paper issues in 2005. The File 770 blog went online on January 15, 2008.
File 770 received the Best Fanzine Hugo in 1984, 1985, 1989, 2000, 2001, 2008, 2016, and 2018.
Mike received the Best Fan Writer Hugo in 1984, 1986, 1988 and 2016.
