The Circuit is a gen club newsletter. It had fourteen issues. The newsletters contains fiction, articles and a column by William F. Nolan. Each issue was about 19 to 25 pages.

Fan Comments

[Regarding the first two issues]: Zine included in membership, 4 issues a year. Newszine. Fair offset.

The issues concern themselves mainly with informing the [fan club] members of the production of Logan's Run, advertisements, and rehashing the movie in a series called "The Defender of Man." However, since this has been the only publication by Logan's Run fans, it is perhaps worth looking at if you are a fan of the movie.
