BeaABOHEMA 3, March 1968 includes a Piers Anthony article, “The Contest: A Confession” (three pages), and the first installment of his column, “Babble” (seven pages). BeABOHEMA 5, August 1969 includes Anthony’s “Babble” column (12 pages) plus a near-seven-page-long letter beginning “Dean Koontz’s column: I’m almost getting to like Dean, though I wouldn’t stoop so far as to kiss him. Might make him pregnant, you know. But I wonder at his reasoning.” The installment of Koontz’s SF movie column titled “Way Station” runs three pages in this issue.
L2 -  - BEABOHEMA 3, March 1968, 80 pages, mimeo. Country of Publication: USA. Edited and copyright by Francis G. Lunney.
Cover by Jim McLeod. Back cover by Robert E. Gilbert. Beabohema began picking up speed with its third issue. “The Contest: A Confession” begins “In late 1962 I decided to end it all. All work, that is; I packed my wife off to earn my living, while I stayed home and wrote science fiction. The same time that I made my first sale, I joined a fan organization called NFFF (I was once informed the initials stood for National Funny Farm Federation), so my indoctrination as a neo-writer and neo-fan were simultaneous.” This a great True or False SF writer question: Piers Anthony was a member of the N3F. Answer: True. And there is more Anthony in BAB 3: a column titled Babble. Also the first installment of Leo P. Kelly’s column; an article by sometime Anthony novel collaborator Robert E. Margroff, co-writer with Anthony of The Ring; “First Impressions of Fandom” by Dale A. Goble, Jr.,; “Fandom’s Vocal Point,” fanzine reviews by Al Snider; Seth Dogramajian’s Bull Artist column which begins “First off, I would like to publicly make amends with Jack Gaughan about that business with Frazetta last issue.” The Ring is reviewed by Faith Lincoln. A Gaughan letter leads off the letter column; also a LoC from Bob Silverberg (still living in New York City).
