Fan Science Fiction
from Fancyclopedia 1 ca. 1944
With some exceptions, aside from fan fiction, fan s-f and fantasy have been similar but inferior to professional stuff, and takes up a lot of space in fanzines where readers would sooner have non-fiction articles, columns, etc. This is particularly true of serials. Where other long stories are presented complete, in a magazine devoted only to them, hey are sometimes worthwhile. There is a theory that stories can be printed in fanzines which pros] would reject for reasons of policy rather than merit. One interesting fan type which probably could not be published to the general public is the tale which is frankly a day-dream on paper, even tho usually third person. The classic horrible example of fan science fiction is the Bob and Koso series.
