John B. Michel, 1938

John B. Michel (1917-1969) was a science fiction fanzine editor and publisher, who also contributed art, articles, poetry, and fiction to most of the prominent fanzines of the 1930s and early '40s.

Michel was actively involved in the early years of the Fantasy Amateur Press Association. In summer 1938 he ran for the organization's Presidency. He co-edited the second and third issues of FAPA's newsletter, The Fantasy Amateur, and solo edited the fourth issue. And in 1940 he was honored with the FAPA Laureate Award for best fanzine artist.

As Earl Singleton put it, Michel was "widely known for his revolutionary ideas" which came to be known within fandom as "Michelism."

Michel also enjoyed some success publishing in the prozines, usually under the pseudonym "Hugh Raymond". In the 1930s and '40s his fiction appeared in such pulps as Avon Fantasy Reader, Comet, Cosmic Tales, Future, Science Fiction Quarterly, Stirring Science Stories, Super Science Stories, Uncanny Tales, Unknown, and Wonder Stories Quarterly.
