< Songbooks

Primary Beams is a songbook produced by MASSFILC for MCFI's successful 2004 Worldcon bid, Noreascon 4. MCFI generously provided the production costs and allowed MASSFILC to keep the proceeds. It features songs of space opera and of the Boston area. There are only a few copies left, and the book won't be reprinted.

The songbook can be ordered directly from us or from many filk dealers. Dealer inquiries welcome.

  • Our Patrol (Terence Chua)
  • Kinnison's Band (Poul Anderson)
