This is a reprint of the 1974 Hyperion edition which, in turn, was a facsimile edition of the original 1954 Atlanta Science Fiction Organization Press edition.The original dust jacket is shown.

The Immortal Storm is Sam Moskowitz' epic story of the foundations of SF Fandom, from the 1920s to the beginning of World War II. It chronicles the people, the organization, the crises and the feuds which created fandom. (In fact, one critic commented that this was the only book ever written where WW II came as an anti-climax.) This is essential reading for anyone interesting in fandom — along with Harry Warner's two histories (All Our Yesterdays, and A Wealth of Fable), The Futurians, and Jack Speer's little chapbook Up To Now, it is the history of SF fandom.

Written in Moskowitz's excited prose, you'll meet the fans and pros who shaped us all! Illustrated with 30 or so photographs and including an excellent index.
