Gayle's Debut

from the calendar

This calendar was Gayle F's fannish debut.

From the editorial in Interphase #3 (1976):
The extra chunk of paper that fell out of the envelope... is the Special Calendar Supplement ... Let me mention right here that the calendar is only available as part of the zine; it is not available separately. [Gayle F], the artist whose illustrations make the calendar so special, has been on the periphery of fandom for a while, but this is, I believe, her debut in a fanzine. Gayle is a multi-talented and remarkably imaginative person (you will probably be seeing her excellent fiction in zines soon, as well as her dynamic artwork), and it is with wide-eyed, 'goshwow' gratitude that I'd like to publicly her welcome to fanzine fandom.

Issue 1

The first Interphase Calendar is 14 pages long and covers September 1976 through March 1977. It was designed by Gayle F and published in 1976 as a supplement to Interphase 3. The copyright notice on the back of the calendar names both Gayle F and Connie Faddis. On the cover: "Interphase Presents Adventures on the Fictional Plane in Which the Enterprise Visits the World of Liteature," and "To be Continued in Interphase IV".

The cover image shows Spock as Sherlock Holmes and later appears in a slightly different form as the cover of The Holmesian Federation #1 in 1978.
