THE FANTASY FAN is the complete run of 18 issues dating from September 1933 to February 1935 and contains original first published stories and poems by such amazing people as Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, H.P. Lovecraft, and many more.  Edited by the then 17 year old Charles Hornig, it was the first weird fiction fanzine ever. Each page was carefully scanned and cleaned up the areas that were difficult to read, but not altering the typos or layout, so you still felt like you were reading a 75 year old zine.
The publisher went to great effort to match the appearance of the original issues. The book pages are tan except for the May 1934 issue which has a pink cover, the September 1934 anniversary issue which has a white cover, and the December 1934 issue which has a white cover.
There is no publisher listed. The book publisher's introduction page is credited to Lance Thingmaker.
The slipcase appears the same as the dustjacket front which is shown above.
