(Hoffwoman) The famous fanzine published by Lee Hoffman of Savannah Ga. before she gafiated for the first time. Q was the rallying point of Sixth Fandom as Spacewarp was of Fifth. It was notable for many things, especially: calling Tucker forth to walk the Earth again; publishing the outstanding material by Walt Willis which inspired the WAW With the Crew in '52 movement; and inspiring 7th Fandom, which was prophesied by Bob Silverberg in the pages of Q and begun when the black-bordered Quandry arrived at Harlan Ellison's. The Quannish was the thirteenth (first anniversary) issue of Q, one of the hundred-page fanzines; you can recognize it by the cover done in plaid ink. And Quandrical publications were those Leeh published.
