Steve Stiles 1966 zine illustration

I really want to get back to reviewing and writing about old sci-fi and fantasy fanzines. It's one of those things I've never had much momentum with on Papergreat over the years. But it's loads of fun to dive into those typed and mimeographed issues.

Now sitting atop the pile, I have the August 19661 issue of The Twilight Zine (No. 19) that I'd like to write about before the end of this month. Edited by Cory Seidman and Leslie Turek, it's the clubzine of the MIT Science Fiction Society (@mitsfs on Twitter).

As a little preview of a full post about The Twilight Zine, here's an illustration by Steve Stiles (1943-2020) from Page 3 of issue No. 19. Stiles also did the cover, so stay tuned for the upcoming post!

1. Historical context note: On August 26, 1996, NASA released the first photograph of the Earth as seen from the noon, snapped by Lunar Orbiter 1. Coincidentally, I began rewatching the 1998 miniseries From the Earth to the Moon last night.
