US Fanzine (1950-1953), 30 issues, edited from Georgia by Lee Hoffman. Though undistinguished in appearance, Quandry was noted for the quality and humour of its writing; along with Hyphen, its influence on fan publishing is still remembered. Contributors included Walt Willis, Robert Silverberg, Wilson Tucker, Robert Bloch and James White. Hoffman also published, though blindness late in life prevented her continuing to edit, Science-Fiction Five-Yearly, the fanzine holding the record for the longest gaps between regular issues; founded in 1951, it shared many contributors with Quandry. A single-issue reprint collection of Quandry #14-#17 was published in 1982 by Joe D Siclari. [PR/RH]
