Zenith

(1) A Fanzine by Harry Turner and Marion Eadie

A Fanzine, six issues of which were published from August 1941-June 1953 by Harry Turner and his wife, Marion Eadie. In 2012, Steven H Silver produced a special issue of his fanzine, Argentus entitled From Argentus to Zenith, which reprinted an issue of Zenith, ran new articles with the same titles as in that issue of Zenith, and included a biography of Turner.

(2) A Fanzine by Peter Weston

Zenith was also an early name of the Peter Weston fanzine later better known as Speculation (which see). In his memoir, With Stars in My Eyes, Weston states that originally his fanzine was to have been called Nadir, until he realized what it meant and went in the opposite direction, not knowing about Turner's earlier 'zine. Turner sent Weston a note forgiving Weston for the appropriation of the title. Turner eventually produced artwork for the eighth issue of Weston's Zenith.
