About Us

This EDLIS project is a collation of information about fanzines dedicated to Bob Dylan, or with significant and relevant Dylan content. 

A fanzine is a magazine for fans. When the term became popular in the 1940s it was largely in reference to science fiction fans. By the 1960s the term was being used for music fan magazines. They are usually amateur, not the work of multi-national publishing conglomerates or global record companies, they are at the opposite extreme. They are non-professional and non-official publications produced by fans of a particular cultural phenomenon for the pleasure of others who share their interest. Publishers, editors and contributors of articles or illustrations to fanzines receive no financial compensation. Fanzines were traditionally circulated free of charge or for a nominal cost to defray postage and production expenses. The term fanzine is sometimes confused with "fan magazine", but the latter term refers to commercially-produced publications.

A fan is a fanatic, a keen and regular enthusiast for a particular person or thing.
