Biographical Note: Cuyler Warnell "Ned" Brooks (1938-2015) was an editor, collector, and fan of science fiction. He worked for NASA as a wind tunnel engineer while collecting books and fanzines, and created his own publications. He was an active part of many science fiction fan organizations and kept robust correspondence over his lifetime, creating zines featuring the writing and reviews of his contacts. He also created crowd sourced indexes and book reviews, championed private presses, self published sci fi writers, and artists of the genre in his own publications. An avid collector of historic typewriters, a large part of the output of his zines were created using a typewriter and mimeograph machine.
