Although production of Lost in Space ceased in 1968 the show never really
disppeared from view. In the last 30 years Lost in Space has been one of
the most repeated shows on the small screen. Luckily for fans the flame
has been kept alive not just through re-runs but also through numerous
clubs devoted to the show. The legacy of organized clubs which find their
origins in the early 1970's is of course, the many issues of periodicals and
fanzines in which fans have written, drawn and argued about their favorite show.
The quality of fanzines varies a great deal but one thing which is always
consistent is the enthusiasm and love of Lost in Space.
LISFAN is the oldest surviving fanzine and still the benchmark. More
recently another major fanzine called The Kyle Wood Lost in Space Quarterly Fanzine
has come on the scene.
This section is dedicated to fanzines which are different than periodicals
covered in another section. Fanzines are large fan produced magazines
that are often published irregularly while periodicals are usually
published on a regular basis and are more in the form of a newsletter no
matter how big or small in size. Fanzines can often be purchased in
stores while periodicals are usually only available through subscription.
