Sapiro, Leland

Tagged: Author | Editor | Critic

(1924-2013) US critic and Fanzine editor, active in Fandom since 1962. He is best known for editing and publishing Riverside Quarterly (which see), which ran from 1964 to 1993 and whose content leant towards that of an Academic Journal. Most of Sapiro's critical writing, under his own name and his occasional pseudonym Yogi Borel, was published in this venue; an early example was the serialized essay "The Faustus Tradition in the Early Science Fiction Story" (August 1964-February 1965 Riverside Quarterly).
