Logan's Run Organization Of Fans

1976 - 1980

The original Logan's Run club was the Logan's Run Organization Of Fans (LROOF) and was based in California. Membership included a newsletter called "The Circuit" a membership card, and a pen. The pen is shown above. This club dissolved in 1980 leaving a bunch of membership unfulfilled. On a few occasions (about once a year) they included a little wallet sized picture along with the regular issues. Their newsletter had some fan fiction at first, and a column by William F. Nolan. Each issue was about 19 to 25 pages. The president of the club was Fay Metze (who later married and became Fay Popejoy) and the editor of the fanzine was Lisa Jardon. Two of the true movers and shakers in Logan Fandom! Hats off to you for producing such a nifty newsletter! Fay was even Tuckerized in Nolan's second book Logan's World on page 13 as the name of a drug Eztem-F!

(How come no one form Sandman Senttinel was ever Tuckerized?)

Formation of the LROoF is a series of 15 letters between the club president and the MGM Publicity Department. These letters cover the early formation of the club From May 19 1976 to December of 1976 when the second issue of The Circuit emerged.
