      According to this source:

      and several other such that you can find by Googling on words from the
      paragraph here about "The Eye of Argon" (a little more than halfway down through the
      issue), the story was written by a Kansas City fan named Jim Theis and
      originally published in a fanzine called OSFAN in 1970. Theis was probably born
      about 1953 and was probably about 16 or 17 when he wrote it. Theis died several
      years ago.

        "The Eye of Argon" entered fannish legend after the late SF author Tom
        Scortia received a copy of the fanzine it was published in and, tickled by
        the sheer badness of the story, started passing copies around. Inspired
        perhaps by the Inklings' party game of trying to read Amanda McKittrick Ros
        aloud without laughing, fans started holding serial readings of this story
        at club meetings and conventions, and have been doing it for at least 25 years.
