Reviews
from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
Fantasy books, plays, movies, radio programs, comics and the like are reviewed in fanzines; and, especially in individzines type alpha, non-fantasy works that interest the publishers, particularly music, movies, ktp, are described. An important function in reviewing fantasy in other media seems to be to get it on record, perhaps for the someday bibliography; certainly little other function is served by reviews of radio and TV shows. Reviews of stf books are a slightly different matter. An effort has been made to get them published on uniform sized paper so that they may be bound into a booklet to use as a guide when combing the second-hand bookshops or looking thru a library.
