“For anyone who equates ‘fan magazines’ with supermarket tabloids, this book should come as a revelation.  Tony Slide has one a formidable job of research to chart the birth, rise and fall of Hollywood fan magazines in the twentieth century, their relationship to the industry they covered and the readers they served.  It’s a colorful, well-told history thats full of surprises.” – Leonard Maltin
