Obituary: Leland Sapiro

Fan and editor Leland Sapiro (b.1924) died on October 8. Sapiro, along with Jon White and Ron Smith, revived the fanzine Inside Science Fiction as Inside in 1962. Eventually, Sapiro was left in editorial control of the magazine and it became the Riverside Quarterly, with a more scholarly feel to it. Although there was a lengthy lapse in publishing during the seventies, Sapiro published the final issue of Riverside Quarterly in the early 1990s.
