The Revenge of Hump Day--Hugo Nominated Best Fanzine

Included in the sample are a perfectly charming Christmas story that, except that it is "Uncle Timmy's" heartfelt personal experience, is in no way original; a collection of unoriginal and unfunny "jokes"; fannish and sf-related news items that would have been very interesting and useful to the target audience when published; real-world political opinion pieces, some by "Uncle Timmy" and some not.

It's all perfectly competently and clearly written. I'm sure it's well-received by its intended audience. On the other hand, I don't see any exceptional excellence.

Withholding final judgment till I've read samples of the other nominees.
