Make It So 1 - 26

The zines are available to read as PDFs which have been produced by scanning the original zines. Click on the cover and the zine should open in a new tab in most browsers on computers, laptops and tablets. You might struggle to read them on small screens. Clicking on any coloured title will open a text copy of the story

You may save a copy for your own personal use (right click on cover and 'save target as'). If you wish to make use of the PDFs in any other way, please contact us. Please do not further distribute the PDFs.

COPYRIGHT While we had permission from the writers and artists to publish their fanworks in our zines with reprint rights and hard copies of many (though not the earliest) of these zines do exist in the British Library, none of us in fandom in those early days envisioned online publication. Unfortunately we have lost touch with most of the writers and artists and some of them are no longer with us. We are hoping none of our contributors will object to us making the zines available through the Archive as part of our way of honouring and preserving early fandom. If you are a writer or an artist who does object, please contact us to discuss various options, such as removing your work. The story/art pages can be replaced with placeholder pages leaving only the title and the contributor’s name in the Table of Contents. contact us.
