Chrrronology

Origin The origins of fan publications can be traced back to 19th century literary groups in the United States, when the Amateur Press Association published collections of fiction, poetry, and commentary. They had H. P. Lovecraft as one of their biggest representatives.

The Little Review

Howard Phillips Lovecraft

Origen Los orígenes de las publicaciones fan se remontan a los grupos literarios del siglo XIX en los Estados Unidos, donde la Amateur Press Association publican apazines, colecciones de ficción, poesía y comentario con H. P. Lovecraft como uno de sus mayores representantes.

1914 The Little Review Jane Heap and Margaret Anderson publish the celebrated literary magazine The Little Review, a form of self-publishing close in spirit to the fanzine that brings together an extraordinary collection of modern American and European writers.

Jane Heap y Margaret Anderson editan la célebre revista literaria The Little Review, una forma de autopublicación cercana en espíritu al fanzine que aúna una colección extraordinaria de escritores modernos americanos y europeos.

1916 Dadaism Dadaism was born as an intellectual and aesthetic vanguard movement that proposes the opposite of the concept of reason, a denial of everything and destruction through destruction.  —  Their artists produce and distribute small books as art zines. —  The use of collage, appropriation and stamping influence subsequent fanzines.

El Dadaísmo nace como un movimiento de vanguardia intelectual y estético que propone lo opuesto al concepto de razón la negación de todo y la destrucción por la destrucción.  — Sus artistas producen y distribuyen pequeños libros a modo de art zines. — El uso del collage, la apropiación o la estampación influyen en los fanzine posteriores.

1926 Amazing Stories Readers of the professional magazine Amazing Stories send their own stories in exchange for the magazine publishing their names and addresses in order to start correspondence with other readers. — There is a strong community of fans that exchange ideas and stories. — Amazing Stories helps define and launch a new genre of pulp fiction.

Amazing Stories

The Comet

Los lectores de la revista profesional Amazing Stories envían sus propias historias a cambio de que la revista publique sus nombres y direcciones para iniciar correspondencia con otros lectores. — Se entabla una potente comunidad de fans que intercambian ideas e historias. — Amazing Stories ayuda a definir y poner en marcha un nuevo género de ficción pulp.

El Science Correspondence Club en Chicago publica The Comet, el primer fanzine de ciencia ficción. — Los clubes de ciencia ficción fandom publican sus propios fanmagazines o fanmags. — El mimeógrafo emerge como medio barato que facilita la producción y distribución de los fanmags.

1930 The Comet The Science Correspondence Club in Chicago publishes The Comet, the first science fiction fanzine. —  Fandom science-fiction clubs publish their own fan magazines or fanmags. —  The mimeograph emerges as a cheap medium that facilitates the production and distribution of fanmags.

1940 Fanzine Term Russ Chauvenet, author of the zine Detours and one of the founders of the fandom of science-fiction, coined the term fanzine (a combination of fanmag and letterzine) in order to distinguish them from prozines, professional journals of the genre.

1950 Beat Generation The groups of writers of the Beat Generation encourage the racial, women, and gay liberation movements as well as the rise of the hippie counterculture as a rejection of the classic values of society. — They mimeograph small runs of their own chapbooks. — They use self-publishing and their own distribution channels to disseminate their radical works due to the difficulty of doing so through the current means of the time. These events represent a milestone in the history of the fanzine.

Allen Ginsberg, American beat poet

Generación Beat

The Fanscient No.8 (The Robert Bloch Issue) Page 13 Summer 1949 Mimeograph

Término Fanzine Russ Chauvenet, autor del zine Detours y uno de los fundadores del fandom de ciencia-ficción, acuña el término fanzine (unión de fanmag y letterzine) para distinguirlos de los prozines, revistas profesionales del género.

Los grupos de escritores de la Generación Beat fomentan los movimientos de liberación racial, de la mujer, los homosexuales y el ascenso de la contracultura hippie en rechazo a los valores clásicos de la sociedad. — Imprimen con mimeógrafos pequeños tirajes de sus propios chapbooks. — Emplean la autoedición y sus propios canales de distribución para difundir sus radicales obras, debido a la dificultad de hacerlo a través de los medios corrientes de la época. Estos hechos suponen un hito en la historia del fanzine.
