Description (Specifications)[edit]

Fanzines are fan-produced magazines.

  • They are often inexpensive (...a few dollars or pounds an issue) or even free.
  • In their original form they would often be hand written, hand copied, and mailed to a small subscriber list.
  • Current fanzines are most often produced through desktop publishing software and distributed as PDFs through the internet.
  • In many cases the older fanzines, though no longer publishing new issues, are also available as PDFs scanned from the originals.
