(p.233) Appendix 1 U.S. Fan Magazines
Because of the ephemeral nature of fan magazines, it is difficult to determine exact beginning and end dates of many publications. This listing provides the most definitive information available, but is, of necessity, incomplete. Reference sources used include the annual listings in the Film Daily Year Book of Motion Pictures from 1926 to 1969; N. W. Ayer and Sons’ Directory of Newspapers and Periodicals (later the Gale Directory of Publications and Broadcast Media); Ulrich’s International Periodicals Directory; the five-volume Union List of Serials in Libraries of the United States and Canada, edited by Edna Brown Titus (H. W. Wilson co., 1965); the published Library of Congress Copyright Office Catalog of Copyright Entries: Periodicals, 1946–1977; and the reported holdings of various U.S. Libraries. Most documentation on fan magazines is incredibly incomplete; for example, the 1932 edition of The Motion Picture Almanac lists only eleven fan publications, and yet there were almost double that number published at that time.
Where the month of publication is given, it is the date appearing on the fan magazine itself. Often, the copyright date appears inside the magazine and it is different, usually a month earlier, from the date on the cover or contents page. Also, fan magazines were generally available for sale two or three weeks prior to the date on the cover.
It should be noted that there is misnumbering in many fan magazines, both in terms of issues and volumes. With fan magazines published from the 1950s onward, it is virtually impossible to base a date of first issue on the volume and number quoted in the publication. Unless indicated, the fan magazines listed here were published on a monthly basis and out of New York. Some fan magazines described themselves as “bimonthly,” and this appears, correctly, to mean they were published every two months, not, as the term is loosely used today, twice a month. If a fan magazine is the subject of substantial coverage in the text, the information here is limited to basic years of publication only. Some 268 fan magazines are listed, but it may well be that there are many more.
Television fan magazines that do not contain a reference to film in their titles are not included. Some of the listed periodicals may not rightly be designated “fan magazines” but are listed here in an effort to aid readers who might expect their inclusion based on information found elsewhere. Additionally, some annuals are included in that they resemble fan magazines and have the same publishers.
