Fandom exploded in the 1970s. It became larger and more diverse, adding multiple conventions every weekend. Fanzines and APAs also exploded. Science fiction itself exploded in mass media with movies like Star Wars and Superman. What was fandom like in the whacky '70s, and how has it changed over the decades since?
