When did fandom start? What was the earliest fan activity? This all depends on how you define fandom. What definition you use and what particular part of fandom you are talking about will change the start date.

Below is a partial list of early fandom activities based on varying definitions of fandom:

  • When the Christian Bible was being written, circa 2166 BCE to 95 CE. [1]
  • From 1920 to 1930, Jane Austen fans began to write their own stories based on her characters and to distribute those stories in fanzines. (Jenkins)
  • In 1967, the first Star Trek fanzine was published.
