Once upon a time there were serialized children’s books that captivated young readers in the way that radio serials captivated their parents. The Mystery & Adventure Series Review is published irregularly by Fred Woodworth and promotes “still enthusiastic discussions of obsolete books fading in the twilight of a dying civilization.” The Mystery & Adventure Series Review includes histories of the books, notes on typography, and dozens of letters from zine readers. All of it is produced, like Fred Woodworth’s The Match on vintage printing equipment without computers. And, it’s free for the asking!
