Karass was the second zine by Linda Bushyager, begun while she was still publishing her first fanzine Granfalloon, which was released from 1966 to 1976. After Karass, she co-published Duprass with Leslie Smith in the 1980s.

Bushyager's Karass was preceded by a one-shot fanzine, also called Karass, written by Stephen Ivey, and published in Jan. 1971. The goal of that zine was "a fanzine dealing with the history and/or criticism of science fiction." The relationship between that zine and Bushyager's zine is unclear, but Ivey writes in that issue "Thanks are given to Linda Bushyager, without whose help this would not have happened." The picture above is the cover of issue #1 of Ivey's Karass (it is not from Bushyager's fanzine).
