Breezy Science Stories

"This title may not exist. It does occur in the occasional magazine checklist but exhaustive research and inquiries have turned up absolutely no information on it.

"The earliest reference to it is in a Bradford Day checklist of the early 1950's. Day lists the title as being British. He felt that there were at least two issues dated November 1935 and January 1936. He goes on to say however that he has no data on either issue.

"Copies do not exist in either the British Library or Oxford's Bodleian Library. This may not be controlling however as many fan publications were not sent to either library and it is possible that, if Breezy Science Stories exists, it is an early fanzine.

"At the same time no collector or researcher that we contacted had a copy of Breezy or had ever seen one. It is therefore possible that this title is apocryphal. It is likely that indexers after Day simply picked up his reference and incorporated it into their own work." (Miller/Contento)
