50 Years of Fanac

Arnie & Lennie on 50 years of fanac

Arnie Katz and Lenny Bailes reminisce about the 50 years that have passed since they published Cursed, their first fanzine, as teenagers. This illustration celebrating the event appeared in Arnie's Fanstuff #33, dated March 17, 2013. The photo on the wall is lifted a bit from an issue of Quip, their more successful subsequent collaboration in the later '60s. I understand that no issues of Cursed remain extant, and that they'd just as soon keep it that way.
