Yandro

An important fanzine published from 1953 to 1986 by Buck and Juanita Coulson, publishing 259 issues.

It began as the clubzine of the Eastern Indiana Science Fiction Association (EISFA), and was named EISFA and edited by Juanita Wellons (later Juanita Coulson) and Beverly Amers (later Beverly DeWeese). By the late 50s it had completed turning into Yandro.

Yandro won the Hugo for Best Fanzine in 1965, and was a nominee 10 years in a row. Yandro's title came from a story by Manly Wade Wellman. The fanzine's content covered a wide range of topics, including Coulson's excellent reviews of fanzines.

Film critic and one-time fan Roger Ebert wrote:

Locs (letters of comment) were the currency of payment for fanzine contributors; you wrote, and in the next issue got to read about what you had written. Today I can see my name on a full-page ad for a movie with disinterest, but what Harry Warner or Buck Coulson had to say about me — well, that was important.

Contributions included Dan Adkins, ATom, George Barr, Ruth Berman, John Brunner, Sherna Burley, L. Sprague de Camp, Ted Carnell, Jim Cawthorn, Raymond L. Clancy, Richard Delap, Alan Dodd, Margaret Dominick, Elizabeth Fishman, Richard Flinchbaugh, George Foster, John Foyster, Robert Gilbert, Alexis Gilliland, Joe Hensley, Jay Kinney, David Lewton, Denny Lien, Dave Locke, Brian Lumley, Allen Mardis, Derek Nelson, Dan Osterman, Alexei Panshin, Seth Poole, Jerry Pournelle, Dave Prosser, Gene Roddenberry, Bill Rotsler, Dick Schultz, George Scithers, Randy Scott, Robert Silverberg, Reg Smith, Mike Symes, Don Thompson, Maggie Thompson, Bjo Trimble, Bob Tucker, Ted White, Gene Wolfe, and Roger Zelazny.
