Random Jottings #11...This isn’t the fanzine you’re looking for.
Random Jottings #10 is the improbable history issue.
Random Jottings #9 is actually three different fanzines combined into one, but broken into three separate files to keep file size to something reasonable. Random Jottings #9 is the "My Brilliant Fannish Career" issue, reminiscences of a life spent on the fringes of fandom.
Random Jottings #8.5, the "Watergate Redux" issue, is a supplement to Random Jottings #8, the "Watergate Considered as an Org Chart of Semi-Precious Stones" issue, containing Earl Kemp's adventures with the Nixon Administration along with a new piece on Martha Mitchell and a copy of Richard Nixon's real FBI application, which he sent in right after college. (He didn't get the job). Random Jottings #8.5 also has the lettercol, since all the letters are about the Watergate issue anyway.
Finally, there's a facsimile of Random Jottings #1, the "Genzine Issue," first published September 1970.
Random Jottings #8 is the Watergate Considered as an Org Chart of Semi-Precious Stones Issue.
Random Jottings #7 is the Sidewise Issue, because the four articles that make up this fanzine all appeared originally as blog pieces on my Sidewise Thinking blog. All have been substantially rewritten from their original appearances.
Random Jottings #6 is the special "Cognitive Biases" issue, an encyclopedia of all the ways our brains get it wrong.
Random Jottings #5 is a memorial issue dedicated to my father, Odell F. Dobson, who died in his sleep Thursday 21 January 2010. It contains DIARY OF AN AIR GUNNER, the amazing true story of his World War II experiences.
Also here are Random Jottings #4, the Alternate History Issue, along with a variant Random Jottings #2 from the “Minneapolis in 1973” Timeline, both by Michael Dobson.
The print edition was stapled “Ace Double” style, with the two issues upside down from each other, and may be printed in that format from the link below.
For screen viewing, read issue 4 first, then issue 2.
