    All Ten Issues of the
    Science Fiction Fanzine
    Xero

    Pat and Dick Lupoff, editors. Xero. New York: September 1960-1963. Ten mimeographed issues bound in one folio volume. Complete run of the classic science fiction fanzine Xero, sometimes subtitled "The Fanzine of Relative Dadaism." Featuring the supplemental series of articles on comics called "All In Color For A Dime". This particular run includes flyers 1, 2, 3 and 5 bound in between issues, The Reader's Guide to Barsoom and Amtor by Davis G. Van Arnam and Others, 1963 ("Special printing for contributors, issued in advance of the first edition"); and the Xero Index Edition, 1963. Contributors include James Blish, Lin Carter, Buck Coulson, L. Sprague De Camp, Harlan Ellison, Ed Gorman, Paul Williams and others. Heavily illustrated in both color and black and white by artists such as Joe Sanders, Lee Ann Tremper, Dave English, Bob Stewart, Lin Carter, Cathy Bell, Andy Reiss and many others. Issue number nine inscribed in pen by contributor Ethel Lindsay on its table of contents: "love from / Madeline / and Walt" and "To / Pat + Dick the most / wonderful of hosts - I cry at the / thought of leaving them / Ethel Lindsay."

    Contemporary red patterned cloth, lettered and ruled in gilt. Issues with three ring binder holes, few with holes in both side margins. Binding lightly rubbed, spine ends and corners bumped. Textblock edges with some soiling. Pages age darkened with occasional small margin tears, some clean tears extending into the text (the largest being approximately three inches), few minor smudges or stains. Very good collection of this iconic work from the sixties.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
