Note: Amra uses four unusual names for common fanzine sections. All four were derived from scrambling "Blood and Thunder" and "Swashbuckle". "Thuds", "Blunders" and "Bushes" are used for editorials. "Swackles" are letters to the editor. Circulation in Amra had gradually increased from 150 initially to about 300 by V2n42, when it quite abruptly increased to about 600. It continued to increase gradually beyond that to about 900 by V2n49.
Synopsis: Amra is named after Conan the Cimmerian, who called himself by that name whilst he was a very successful and blood-thirsty pirate. Conan was a hero whose exploits of swordplay against divers sorcerers were chronicled by Robert E. Howard. Amra is about various heros, mostly of swordplay-&-sorcery stories set in fantasy worlds. Amra was started as the organ of the Hyborian Legion, a group of Conan admirers who met annually at the World Science Fiction Convention; Legion membership was open to all interested parties who showed up.
