— Faned: Susan Wood. A one-shot homage to the QUEEBSHOTS tradition, presumably exhibiting a similar sense of humour?
1976 – (#1 – Oct)
[ See QUEEBSHOT under APAzines. ]
— Faned: Les Nirenberg. Humour fanzine pubbed out of Toronto, Ontario, beginning 1960. Nirenberg ran a candy store called “The Coexistence Candy Store”.
Wrote Ted White: “Les was one of those fans who came out of no-where full-blown. He was at first suspected of being a hoax… but we all met him at the 1960 Worldcon.” (Held in Pittsburg.)
Nirenberg was “big on the Toronto Hipster scene” and was introduced to fandom by Boyd Raeburn & P. Howard Lyons, fellow jazz enthusiasts. Then: “Les ended up on the CBC as a performer.. He was not in fandom long, and although he was fannish and a Neat Guy, I think he became a fan by accident and fandom was a minor detour on his road to success.”
With issue #5 or #6 Nirenberg changed the title of his zine to PANIC BUTTON and turned it into a commercially successful semi-pro humour zine. (TW)
