The Frozen Frog
The Frozen Frog was a science fiction fanzine published by Benoit Girard.
The Frozen Frog was published in Guillaume-Boisset, Cap-Rouge, Quebec, Canada. Twelve issues were released between January 1992 to August 1997. The editor described his fanzine as, "a semi personal fanzine...It is centred on science fiction but ranges widely around to include considerations on science, politics, history, gaming, writing, and whatever its reader or editor happen to be interested into."
Dr. Gafia writes of The Frozen Frog, "English-language fanzine published by a relative newcomer (he also publishes one in French) with a sense of humor that is surprisingly lively. An editorial, an article or two and a lettercolumn seems to be the formula for most issues."
Contributions of writing included "Plato in the Night Kitchen" by Alexis Gilliland, among others.
Ted White, in Apparatchik #66, from August 1996, writes, " I like THE FROZEN FROG. It has become a personal favorite of mine...Benoit projects exactly the right tone for the fanzine, and he attracted a number of regular contributors to the FROG's letter column -- myself among them."
Letters came from Harry Andruschak, Buck Coulson (Yandro), Don Fitch, Ben Indick (Ibid), Steve Jeffery, Joseph T. Major (Alexiad), Michael McKenny (Bardic Runes), Lloyd Penney (Torus), Derek Pickles (Phantasmagoria), Harry Warner, Jr. (Horizons), Ted White (Gambit), and Walt Willis (Hyphen).
In a letter of comment published in The Frozen Frog #9, Franz Miklis originated the idea of the World Wide Party.
