This section lists fan-produced material with significant "Space: 1999" content: it is necessarily very selective. These fanzines and newsletters are generally only available through fan conventions or fan clubs such as the Gerry Anderson fan club Fanderson. Fanzines such as Century 21, Cult TV, Just Imagine, S.I.G. and Timescreen are sold commercially (if only in specialist shops) and are thus listed in the main section. Whilst Fab and the other Fanderson fanzines are slick and professional, the quality of other fanzines can vary.
