FUTURIA FANTASIA. For those not familiar with "FuFa" (as it is affectionately known), this was a mimeographed fanzine first published by an 18-year-old Ray Bradbury shortly after his graduation from high school. Ray Bradbury published four issues of FUTURIA FANTASIA over the 1938-1939 time frame, with the financial assistance of his good friend Forrest J. Ackerman. The magazine contained not only a great deal of the young Ray Bradbury s writing (both under his own name and a variety of pseudonyms), but also writing by Robert Heinlein (as "Lyle Monroe"), Henry Kuttner, Damon Knight and Forry Ackerman (all close to the beginning of their literary careers), with cover art by the brilliant Hannes Bok (another good friend of Ray's). Ray Bradbury published approximately 100 copies of each FUTURIA FANTASIA issue, and sold them for 10 cents each!
