Fans'publications

 

This section is, I’m afraid, rather incomplete, but as my activities as agent took up increasingly more of my time, my ability to keep all the sections of my records up-to-date has lessened. Please me know of any material I have omitted and you feel should be added to this section. Part 1 records the various fanzines and calendars produced by fans, Part 2 Publications relating to Discworld Conventions and those published in tribute, and Part 3 the Clarecraft newsletter. C.P.S.
