THE NORWEGIAN FANDOM ARCHIVES

CoFutures
CoFUTURES with the support of Aniara and the Norwegian fandom community will digitize and add metadata to Norwegian fanzines for the purposes of research. The physical archives are located at the Science Fiction Collections at the Science Library, University of Oslo, while the complete digitized archives will be located at the official Aniara page. At our CoFUTURES page, we will provide a mirror to some of these fanzines and other fan ephemera.






ALGERNON [1974 - 1998]
About
Algernon: Organ for Aniara was the official science fiction journal of the society [Aniara]. A total of 39 issues were printed until 1998. We have digitized all issues of Algernon as a service to Norwegian and Science Fiction fandom. No copyright violation is intended. The physical copies of available issues that have been donated to us may be located as part of the Aniara Archival collections. The fanzines have been scanned by Bodhisattva Chattopadhyay.

Our heartfelt thanks goes to Prof. Øystein Sørensen (editor of Algernon 1974-88) and Leif Thomas Thorsen, former Aniara leader, for lending us this material for digitization.
