Denver, CO: Gorgon Press, 1949. First Edition. Original wraps. 7 X 8 1/2 Inches. 60 PP. Very Good. Item #6579
Issue #10 of only 11 that were issued. Gorgon was a general interest fanzine edited by Stanley Mullen of Denver, Colorado. Mullen was active in science fiction fandom in the 1940s. THE GORGON was his most substantial fanzine and ran between 1947 and 1949. This particular issue features the VERY EARLY POEM "The Sorceress" by Marion Zimmer (Bradley). This poem is signed, "Marion Zimmer Bradley / "Astra" no more" in the top margin. This fanzine issue predates any published novel by Bradley, who would go on to become famous for her lesbian fiction as well as the incredible Darkover series. Two original staples a bit rusty at spine. Faint wear to edges. A very attractive copy of this fanzine, the earliest publication signed by Bradley available in commerce.
