First Fandom
First Fandom is an informal association of early, active and well-known science fiction fans.Patch belonging to First Fandom member Emil PetajaIn 1958 a number of fans at Midwestcon realized amid table-talk that they all had been active in fandom for more than 20 years.

Originally only those fans who were known to have been active in fandom before the cutoff date, January 1, 1938, were eligible. Such fannish activity (or "fanac") including writing to letter columns in science fiction magazines, having been published in fanzines, or having participated in science fiction oriented clubs, or just generally doing fannish things.[1] The term itself is an oblique reference to Olaf Stapledon's classic science fiction epic Last and First Men.

Window (short Story)
"Window" is a science fiction story by Bob Leman, published in 1980 and reprinted numerous times. It was nominated for the Nebula Award for best short story.[1] The influential science fiction publisher Donald A. Wollheim included the short story in The 1981 Annual World's Best SF.[2] Plot[edit] The prose is straightforward and to-the-point. The plot of the story involves the discovery of a three-dimensional window on a Victorian-style house and family. The window is created in a minor military research experiment that goes awry. The research involves studying the idea of channeling psychic powers through mnemonic words and phrases—in essence, spell casting. To everyone's surprise, the research works, creating what the researchers and military men at first believe to be a window into the past. The three-dimensional window cannot be penetrated

The Last Dangerous Visions
The Last Dangerous Visions is a mooted sequel to the science fiction short story anthologies Dangerous Visions and Again, Dangerous Visions, originally published in 1967 and 1972 respectively. Like the first two, it was scheduled to be edited by Harlan Ellison. The projected third collection was started but, controversially, is yet to be finished. It has become something of a legend in science fiction as the genre's most famous unpublished book.[1][2] It was originally announced for publication in 1973, but other work demanded Ellison's attention, and the anthology has not seen print to date. He has come under criticism for his treatment of some writers who submitted their stories to him, who some estimate to number nearly 150.[3] Many of these writers have since died. Various difficulties delayed publication many times
