Ok, I could use some help. I have the first three Evermist fanzines starting with Winter 1974. Also have the first 3 issues of Alarums and Excursions, and first three of DankenDismal. I’m not looking to part with them, but I’m curious as to their relative value to collectors these days in price? The only Evermist sale I could locate was issue #16 currently on eBay for about $700. But I couldn’t come up with anything for A&E or DankenDismal. Any help or maybe pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

There are some (very few) here who will be able to put price tags on those. The same who may well be interested in making a private purchase.

Any chance of some photos? For posterity it would be good to see these things. I suspect they fall well outside of my price range.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . radishes.

I hope the third time is a charm here. Here are the first 3 Evermist, and 1,2, and 7 of A&E. They are all in excellent shape in my opinion. Any help with appraising these would be greatly appreciated. I also have Fire the Arquebussers and DankenDismal. I’ll upload those soon too!

Does Evermist have any RPG content?  The covers suggest it is more a literary fanzine of poems and short stories. They would likely only have some value if there is something by an author who later became famous.

Per the ISFDB issue #3 has a story by E. C. Tubb (but under the name "Eric Storm"), who used to be a well-known writer but is not much read today. Some later issues have more stories by Tubb, and the last issue has a poem by Charles de Lint (also using a pseudonym). None of the other authors in this magazine appear to be notable, and there does not appear to be any RPG content.
