File 770

File 770 is a long running fannish newszine published by Mike Glyer since 1978 to report on fan clubs, conventions, fannish projects, fans, fanzines and sf awards, and to publish controversial articles. It was named for the legendary party held in Room 770 at the 9th Worldcon, Nolacon, held in in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1951. The party ran continuously for two days and upstaged all the other events to the extent that it is the only event widely remembered.

File 770 has won the Hugo Award for Best Fanzine six times and has been nominated more than twenty five times.

It is currently available as a blog at http://file770.com/ and many issues of the fanzine can be found at http://www.efanzines.com/File770/.
