MidAmeriCon, the 34th World Science Fiction Convention, was held in Kansas City in 1976. Featuring moderator Linda Bushyager, Moshe Feder, Patrick Hayden (now Patrick Neilsen Hayden), Victoria Vayne, Gary Farber, Jon Singer and Taral Wayne MacDonald, this panel discusses what used to be the commonplace wisdom of mimeography, but today is an esoteric look at the fanzine production practices of 20th century fandom. Includes a wonderful segment early on where Jon imitates a mimeo, and a novel use for the New York Times. There is about a 20 minute period where the video is damaged, but the audio remains clear throughout. All thanks to the Video Archeology Project for supplying this material.
