About

A File 770 website, reproducing paper issues as webzines, was hosted at CompuServe’s Ourworld community from 2000 until the community was shut down in 2009. Screen captures of the website are available on the Wayback Machine. File 770 has produced paper issues every year from 1978 through the present. eFanzines.com began hosting PDF versions of the paper issues in 2005. The File 770 blog went online on January 15, 2008.
