Charming collection of several of the first publications by the Rocky Horror Fan Club, a group that pioneered intense devotion to the film whose fanbase became the first film "cult." As one Sal Piro notes in the introduction to the January issue, "I know that to most neophytes and 'virgins' a fan club for a movie sounds bizarre. But let me say that to anyone who has experineced the absolute pleasure of seeing Rocky Horror, this is not bizarre but merely something that had to be." These issues, which include the club's first publication, feature fan fiction and art about Rocky Horror characters, poems, crossword puzzles, and the like, along with profiles of Tim Curry and his latest work, and accounts of Rocky Horror screenings throughout the country. With a nice signature from Campbell, who played Columbia in the film.
