Archival Adventures: Whispers fantasy and horror magazine

Archival Adventures: Whispers fantasy and horror magazine

It's time for an adventure! Destination: Horror. This week, we’re getting in the Halloween spirit with Whispers, a U.S. semiprozine published from July 1973 through Fall 1987. We have seven issues in our collection and we’ll be looking into the history of this fantasy and horror magazine while we check out the art and stories inside. If you want to learn more before the show, check out the magazine’s entry in the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction: https://sf-encyclopedia.com/entry/whispers

Join our community collections archivist, Anthony Wright de Hernandez, for a livestream on Twitch! Every week we explore and discuss materials from Special Collections and University Archives covering topics including university history, NASA pioneers, architecture, science fiction, cooking, LGBTQ+ history, Black history, urban legends, and more. Recordings of previous streams are available on the Libaries' Youtube page.

If you are an individual with a disability and desire an accommodation, please email library-event-accessibility-g@vt.edu at least 10 business days prior to the event.
