Fan-Tods

A fanzine published by Norman Stanley which was also run through VAPA and FAPA in an apparently distinguishable version. It was subtitled "The Magazine for the Tod Fan."

It was named after a piece of mundane slang common in the 20s and 30s and used by E. E. Smith, but rare today. It meant something like 'a state of uneasiness. E.g., "The mumbo-jumbo gave me the fantods". '
