HINDS (Peter) (Editor). Sun Ra Quarterly 2-5 & Sun Ra Research 12-13. First editions. 12mo., [19-38pp.], printed in colour by Risograph. Stab stapled into the original paper wrappers. Millbrae, Omni Press. 1996-97. Slightly rubbed and browned with rusted staples. Remains of glue from price sticker on 13. Rare outside of North America. Sun Ra Quarterly was short lived and ran for only five issues before it effectively became Sun Ra Research. The fanzines are made up of transcribed interviews capturing the life and thoughts of Sun Ra and his Arkestra, published posthumously by Peter Hinds, who describes the zines as “the product of lunatic obsession and deranged scholarship”.
