It appears that only two issues were released, the first in Winter 1950 and the second in July 1951. According to Pavlat and Evans' original edition of Fanzine Index"' issue 3 was re-titled Fanatic Zine, and appeared in February 1952.

The first issue had contributions from Pope, Lee Hoffman (Quandry, Science Fiction Five Yearly), and others. Cover art was by Pope.

The second issue featured fiction by A. Charles Catania and Dave English (Fantasias); poetry by Tom Covington (Bizarre), Terrence Heywood and Orma McCormick (Starlanes); nonfiction by Lee Hoffman, Bobby Pope and Neil Wood; a crossword puzzle by Redd Boggs (Sky Hook); and letters. Art was provided by Pope and Lee Hoffman.
