The Zed issue 802 1963

The Zed was a science fiction fanzine by Karen Anderson produced in Orinda, California, U.S.A.

In the 1950s and 1960s, Karen Anderson produced The Zed, a mimeographed fanzine made for the Spectator Amateur Press Society (SAPS). This was a long-running small publication, with some issues consisting of just six pages, as was the tradition with many Apazines.

The Zed was short for Die Zeitschrift für Vollstandige Unsinn translated as The Journal for Utter Nonsense.

It is in the pages of The Zed that the first known 'filk' song, by Poul Anderson, was published, appearing in issue # 774, Winter 1953, part of the 26th SAPS mailing. Other writing about filk singing appeared in subsequent issues.
