The Tucker Transfer

(1) A Fanfund

A fan fund organized in 1977 to send Bob Tucker to the 1979 Worldcon if Britain in '79 won (it did, and ran Seacon '79) or the 1979 Eastercon if it lost. Organizers included Gail Burnick and Eric Bentcliffe. Ben Zuhl produced The Deportation Papers to raise funds for it.

(2) A Fanzine

Gale Burnick produced a one-shot fanzine in support of the fan fund. It had a cover by Joan Hanke-Woods, article headings by Steve Stiles, and articles by Mark Aronson, Howard Waldrop, Terry Hughes and others.

This is a fanzine page. Please extend it by adding information about when and by whom it was published, how many issues it has had, (including adding a partial or complete checklist), its contents (including perhaps a ToC listing), its size and repro method, regular columnists, its impact on fandom, or by adding scans or links to scans.
