DNQ, Issue 34 Cover Art by Taral Wayne

DNQ was a science fiction fanzine published by Taral Wayne and Victoria Vayne in Willowdale, Ontario, Canada.

DNQ, the initials standing for "Do Not Quote", was published from April 1978 till October 1984. It was a monthly publication, usually mimeographed in two and three colours. 34 issues were published.

From issues 1-4 the editors called DNQ the "newzine of quintessential faanishness"; and for issues 5-8, "the subjective faanish newsletter' for issue 11, a "subjective fit of extemporaneous faanishness". Issue 12 was an "unauthorized addenda to File 770" (by Mike Glyer).

In an editorial, Taral Wayne writes about the zine, "In a faanish newszine I believe new should be expected to be fluid. We read not a summation of known facts but the process of discovery of the facts...If everybody wants a newszine, nobody seems to want to be the news...On three of four occasions we have been informed that our reportage was uninvited or unappreciated..."

The final issue included work by John Berry, Rich Coad, Dave Langford, Eric Mayer, Stu Shiffman, and a reprint of writing by Susan Wood. Artists included Jerry Collins, August Dore, Ken Fletcher with Tom Foster, Terry Jeeves, Marc Schirmeister, and Taral Wayne with Harry Bell, with August Dore, and with Barry Kent McKay.

Other contributors included Mike Bracken, H. Petard, Bob Shaw, and Ted White, with reprints of articles by Greg Benford and Harry Warner, Jr.. Art work was contributed by C. L. Healy and Bill Rotsler.
