A Few Words About Bilbo Bentcliffe

  • Ecceshill, Bradford, England
  • Mal Ashworth, ed.
  • June 1960 in Marquette Hunnewell collection

This was a one-shot fanzine. It was used as a vehicle to promote Eric Bentcliffe, in hopes of making him a TAFF (Transatlantic I Fan Fund) recipient.

(From the TAFF ballot form: The Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund was created in 1953 for the purpose of providing funds to bring well-known and popular [science fiction] fans familiar to those on both sides of the ocean across the Atlantic. Since that time TAFF has regularly brought North American fans to European conventions and European fans to North American conventions. TAFF exists solely through the support of fandom. The candidates are voted on by interested fans all over the world, and each vote is accompanied by a donation [...] These votes, and the continued generosity of fandom, are what make TAFF possible.)
