Nominee Country Romania
Issue Nominated http://fanzin.clubsf.ro/cuprins-numarul-89-noiembrie-2018/
Information about the Nominee. This electronic fanzin is the entrance gate for Romanian sf&f writers (the Chrysalys nominated people know better). It does it with the most vivid comments lists and a competition between the short stories of the given issue. It is being supported by fan donations.  Even when Romania lost several major electronic entities (revistanautilus.ro as an example), Gazeta SF still goes strong.
