Comments

Handsome volume reprinting, for the first time, the earliest of Bradbury's science fiction writing, which were originally published in small, mimeographed editions between 1939-1940. At 18 years old, shortly after graduating high school in 1939, Bradbury produced "FuFa" with the help of Forrest J. Ackerman, who lent him $90 for the fanzine. "Bradbury met Ackerman through the Los Angeles Science Fiction Society, which Ackerman helped to found. It was there that Bradbury also met Hannes Bok and Emil Petaja. Both were to contribute to Futuria Fantasia; Petaja offered his fiction and Bok contributed stories and poetry, as well as designing the covers and doing the interior illustrations for all four issues, plus the cover for a fifth issue that was never printed" (cf.Zinewiki).
