>> Steven Ogden Collection <<
This item comes from the collection of the late Steven Ogden, fanzine author, publisher, researcher and my friend. Steve was active in fandom (SF/fantasy and comics), including APAs (FAPA, CAPA-Alpha) and publishing for decades under the Spotted Zebra Press/New Spotted Zebra Press banners (with his wife, Vicki). His publications include the massive Brad W. Foster Checklist of Published Works from the 20th Century, Edgar’s Journal, Ouroborus and many others.
