Hartford City, Indiana: Robert (‘Buck’) and Juanita Coulson


This line drawing cover with its rather bad joke fronts this issue of Yandro, an influential SF fan magazine that was published ‘more or less monthly’ by Robert (‘Buck’) and Juanita Coulson, from Hartford City, Indiana. Yandro ran from 1953 to 1986 and was renowned for letters of comment and its book reviews: ‘Maker/A for Anything is repulsive, while Hell’s Pavement is patchwork…’. Salive subscribed to it and this copy – No. 153, c.1964 – is the earliest magazine in his collection. The title of Yandro came from the works of Manly Wade Wellman, who took it from the traditional folk song, ‘He’s Gone Away’.
