Back in the 1970s the editor did a zine called It Comes in the Mail which lasted 28 mostly bimonthly issues. He writes, "It worked on the basis that I would comment on everything pertaining to science-fiction and science-fiction fandom that I got in the mail. It died of success - with only an electric typewriter and a mimeograph machine, I could not keep up - the larger the zine got, the more came in the mail."
