Canadian Fanzine (1970-1973; 1981) edited from Toronto, Ontario, by Mike Glicksohn (1946-2011) and Susan Wood. Sixteen issues, initially February 1970 to May 1973, with a final "revival" issue in September 1981. Though printed on a duplicator, in common with most fanzines of its day, Energumen was noted for the quality of its appearance and attracted original illustrations from many fan and sf artists, including Alicia Austin, Tim Kirk, Jack Gaughan and Vincent Di Fate. The written material ranged through sf, fandom, and general topics, and maintained a high standard with contributions from well-known fan and sf writers, including Avram Davidson, Gregory Benford, Bob Shaw and Robert Silverberg. Despite its limited circulation, Energumen won the Hugo award for best fanzine in 1973. Mike Glicksohn also published the admired personalzine (see Fan Language) Xenium (main series 15 issues, August 1973 to January 1990). [PR/DRL]
