According to science fiction fan and author Mike Resnick, "It's not even a sequel, but rather a continuation, of All Our Yesterdays, heavily illustrated, obviously written by the same hand, chock full of the anecdotes that almost instantly become fannish legend."
It was originally published by Joe Siclari in a three-volume, mimeographed Fanhistorica Press edition in 1977. SCIFI Press brought out an expanded hardcover edition (ISBN 0-9633099-0-0) in 1992. The members of the World Science Fiction Society voted that version the Hugo Award for Best Related Book.
Warner also wrote a related series of historical columns called "All Our Yesterdays."
