Vegas Fandom Weekly (often referred to as VFW) is an influencial Science Fiction Fanzine edited by Arnie Katz. It began publication in November of 2004 and is available as a PDF on

--Evolution-- The first issues of Vegas Fandom Weekly came out weekly and were almost entirely written by Arnie Katz with a few articles from his wife, Joyce Worley Katz and a few letters of comment from LetterHacks such as Lloyd Penney, John Purcell, Robert Lichtman and Chris Garcia. The articles at first tended to focus on the events around Vegas' fandom, usually party/meeting reports.

By mid-2005, Arnie had increased the number of contributors to include various writers, including Mark Plummer, Chris Garcia, Robert Lichtman, JoHn Hardin, and many other fanzine fans. Katz also wrote much Faan Fiction as well. VFW was also a driving force behind the Southern Nevada Amateur Press Society (SNAPS) Amateur Press Association.

By late 2006, Katz began to slow publication, releasing an issue every other week instead of every week.

VFW, along with John Foyster's eFNAC, Cheryl Morgan's Emerald City, is often sited as one of the driving forces behind the gaining popularity of PDFs for distributing science fiction fanzines.
