Mad 3 Party, The

US Fanzine variously edited by Laurie Mann, Pat Vandenberg and (from 1986) Leslie Turek. Published 1984-1990; 38 issues, US quarto paper, stapled.

This lively newsletter was closely associated with the 1989 Boston Worldcon bid, and then with preparations for the resulting convention, known as Noreascon 3 (the third Worldcon in Boston; hence also the 3 in the fanzine title). Thus it included much discussion of related matters, such as Worldcon and Hugo statistics and the financing of Worldcon bids. The Mad 3 Party won the Hugo for best fanzine in 1990. [DRL]
