Old zines
grangeb7
Hi there, I have boxes full of old zines from late 70s and early 80s - is ebay the best place to advertise these, does anybody know? There are also loads of old newsletters from various clubs. I'm in west London but don't really want to post them as postage would be horrendous on this sort of thing.

I never have time to re-read them and really I am trying to declutter Smile

Well.....if you have any copies of 'Straight Blakes' issues #2 and #3, I'll take them off your hands. Just let me know how much you want for them.

That is....if you have them.

Otherwise, putting them on ebay really is your best bet. I don't know if amazon deals with old fanzines.

I would be more than happy to give these zines a home.
Are they all B7 zines?
I'm in Southampton and it would cost a small fortune to post them...but we could always meet halfway at a service station somewhere.

I'm up north in Scotland, so I wouldn't be able to pick up fanzines in person. However, I'm always interested in buying Blake's 7 fanzines, newsletters and such and might be willing to pay postage on selected items. You could post a list or PM me. Otherwise, ebay does seem the best place to sell them.

Hi grangeb7 and welcome to our Forum! You've come to the right place if you want to get rid of your old newsletters and zines. Of course, Ebay is one option to sell your items but posting here, you may have quite a number of Forum members interested in what you have to sell. I see already there are three replies to your post!

If you could generate a list of what you have to sell and post here perhaps members could PM (Private Message) you with their wants and you could tell them the price and postage requirements. At least you could try that first and with any zines and newsletters left, you could always go to Ebay. Whatever you decide, good luck and if you need any more guidance or have questions about our site, please don't hesitate to contact me or any other of the Mod's on this site. Cheers- Paula

It will take me a while to go through and list them out but I will have a go over the next few days. As I said, boxes of zines are not the most friendly of things to post, although a courier might be better but that is still going to be pricey!
Thanks for the input,
Debbie

If it will help, consider what you want to sell each zine or NL for and then figure out postage for one or a couple or many zines and factor that into your selling price. I'm sure you could get a rough estimate of postage from the post office if you bring in a few of the zines and have them weighed- one, three or more and charge accordingly. I know it sounds a lot of work, but then, you wanted to get rid of them and even on Ebay you have to factor in postage, right? Grin

On a more serious note; so many of the older fans are passing on or, like grangeb are decluttering. I know of at least 2 oldie fans who have long parted with their collections of zines and newsletters because they don't think anyone wants them.
Perhaps we should consider a place to put all these zines to, for future fans to look at and wonder how on Earth we managed before the Internet!!!
Just a thought.

Have been trying to find+buy "Threads Through Inifinity" zine a for a long time, please if one can request a reserve if you have it!

Speaking of places to send zines for preservation, if you cannot find a fan to take them, there are two universities in the US that will make them part of their speical collections. They can even help out with mailing costs if the collection is large.

The first one is at the University of Iowa. more here (click on Fandom Preservation Project)
http://opendoors.transformativeworks.org/faq-page#t22n14

The second is at Texas A&M University. They also have a large scfi-fi collection, but just recently started collecting media fanzines and are the first university to accept filk.
