Darroll Pardoe, in Checkpoint #48 of May 1974, says in his review; "Maybe is a very useful publication, with lots of short notices of fanzines and information cribbed from other places. Reading Maybe is one of the best ways of keeping in touch with fanzines in the States. Some chatter this time about crottled greeps and filk duncing. Recommended. Lovely cover, too."

Irvin Koch was the recipient of the 1970 Rebel Award, s lifetime achievement award awarded annually at DeepSouthCon, given by the Southern Fandom Confederation to a fan "who has done a great deal for Southern Fandom.
