Things Wot Fanzine Publishers Thought Were Important
Fanzine editorials usually focused on credits, acknowledgments, the zine's origin story, and an occasional rant about fandom or the ever increasing price of cheese postage costs.

But with the advent of personal desktop publishing and word processing, some editors also wanted to share their tech credentials. Example: "This zine was originally produced  on an Amstrad PCW 9512, translated to Word 5.1 and DTP'ed on Macintosh Powerbook 170. Typeface is Geneva 10pt. Cover created on CorelDraw 4.0 and Pagemaker 5.9 using a flatbed scanner." (from a 1995 zine).
