The Dead Past

Miscellaneous and One-shots

I'm not admitting to all of these, but further titles include the following:

Ghost Titles

Owing to the whims of cover artists, some Langford fanzines have caused confusion to some bibliographers:

The Obsessive List, 1976-1992

Once upon a time I recorded the exact date upon which each Langford fanzine was printed, often with a note of the print run and, where applicable, the APAs or amateur press associations for which the zine was produced. After 1992, with Ansible appearing monthly with the hideous regularity of clockwork and Cloud Chamber confining itself to a single APA, this began to seem a bit pointless. But here is the official transcript of those much-worn sheets from the Ring-Binder of Destiny. One day I'll remember what "SoB" stands for (perhaps copies of that Ansible went out with Roelof Goudriaan's Continental newszine Shards of Babel?).
