This city is filled with ghosts


they laugh on patios, you can see

the foot prints, the paths

they walked like glowing pebbles in the moonlight.


This melody is filled with ghosts


they join you in the dance, the steps

you have traced over until you are at the corner

of a street you do not remember walking,

absentmindedly losing the choreography.


This life is filled with ghosts.


they come into your house and make coffee.

they gaze too long at your mortality

until you wish your body

was so transparent


as the stories you have walked through

their pieces strewn across the blocks,

the song, the walls.

In conclusion, I argue that SF fanzines in China mostly played a transitional role. That is, when no professional platforms were available to publish articles and stories, fanzines stepped in. Though most of those fanzines did not last very long, they played the important role of compiling and delivering information. The key reason why I identify those magazines as fanzines is because all the contributors joined out of their interest in SF and worked for free.
