Sticky Issues

Sticky Issues was a general fandom newsletter, but often tied to specific conventions, like CactusCon, the 1988 NASFiC, and WesterColt .45, the 1992 Westercon, among others. However, it covered a lot more and was circulated to all members of CASFS as well as the committees of various conventions.

This became The Farr Side (see above) after the name of its then editor, Bruce Farr.
