An early fanzine appearance by the noted SF writer before he'd been professionally published. Ellison entered a contest sponsored by the editor of VANATIONS "WHAT S-F MEANS TO ME, " and "unberdened his soul." "When I came upon science fiction (lying in a gutter clutching a Bergy TWS to its chest) I found a literature wherein the ideas I had long upheld, held sway. It spoke in grandiose terms of the equality of man, of the casual intermingling of races, of the racing adventure of just living in a world where science prevailed. It opened unto me the portals of worlds I had long dreamed about. . . It is a pround and lonely thing to be a fan." Needless to say there is much more in this essay of about 850-900 words. Scarce.
