Fanzine Listings (updated)

Update: April 15, 2013: The bulk of the fanzine information has been moved to Fanlore, the fan run wiki. You can access Fanlore's home page here.
_____________________________________
If you're looking for a list of fanzines by fandom, this is what I have so far:

Place of Honor:  Starsky & Hutch. Pepper has compiled the most amazing and complete fanzine listing. Mahvelous. Go here

1. Alphabetical listing
A-Team - list here (last updated in 1997) and here
Beauty & the Beast here and here
Buffy and Angel
Blake's 7  - Judith has an extensive list here
Dr Who - partial lists available here and here and here
Due South -Ray Vecchio Fanzines and  Ray Kowalski Fanzines
Inspector Morse here
The Magnificent 7 here
The Man From U.N.C.L.E - slash fanzines here, gen and slash fanzines here

Star Wars - Star Wars Collector's Bible (older list archived here)
Supernatural - here
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea here
Xena/Hercules - partial list here

2. Multi-Fandom Lists

Ming's Fanzine Archives (Star Trek, Star Wars & other Fandoms - click on the pdfs for the list)
Fandom Wikis - FanLore and Fan History

3. What To Do With That Aging Fanzine Collection?  If you don't  want to sell your fanzines on eBay or at a convention, the  Fan Culture Preservation Project  will help fans find homes for their fanzine collections - either at the University of Iowa or  via fellow fans.  More here and  here.

What I like about the Fan Culture Project is that the University will pay for shipping and loading of the zines.  I have several friends whose health has declined, don't want to sell their collection, but want to find their fanzines a good home.

Other places to buy/sell your fanzines: the Zinelist Announcements List, its sister discussion mailing list  Zinelist or the SlashSwap mailing list. You can offer your fanzines on LJ at Fandom Swap.     Jim and Melody Rondeau will also agent your fanzines online and at conventions for a small commission. As a last resort head over to eBay but beware you may be charged 2-3x more than you would buying from fannish sources.

For new zines/in print zines only:  The Zine listing communities - one here on Dreamwidth and the mirror here on LJ. Melody Clark has started MediaFen, a fanzine listing blog. The RSS feed for LJ users is here. The direct blog link is here.

If you're trying to track down a fanzine producer whose website has moved or gone away, try using the Wayback Machine.  Ex:  The Zine Zone (last updated in 2003) is archived here.

4. Any other lists? Drop a note. And feel free to link here, as I'll update it.

Morgan Dawn Intro: In The Year 2525....

This is an journal for and by adults dealing with sexual and political as well as personal issues. If you are under the age of 18, please get the appropriate consent before proceeding.

Fan:
I am a multi-media fan, love sci-fi and fantasy and have been involved in reading and writing fan fiction for the past 12 years. I am in my 40s (to give you a rough age and experience range). My fan fiction can be found here. Fiction with adult ratings or adult subject matter will be labeled and cut-tagged. Please read responsibly. My fan vids can be found in streaming format here

Person:
My other interest is a rare genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) that I have been diagnosed with.   I also ask that you take time to read this before posting or commenting about EDS.  Please note that comments on typos, grammar and formatting will be deleted. LJ formatting problems may or may not be able to be fixed - do not feel offended if I am unable to respond to your request. Hopefully after reading about EDS, you will understand why it is difficult to type and participate online.

WARNING: If you a
re looking for more info about EDS please header over to the volunteer EDS Alert blog here. This is a private journal and EDS is not the main topic of discussion. Please do not give out the link to my private journal (unless you are interested in fannish things, vidding or disussions about slash and sexuality). If you're only interested in EDS, I tag my EDS posts here.

LJ Info:
I really don't have a friending policy. In fact I am somewhat haphazard about it. If you are adding me to your journal reading list and want to be added back, it does help to drop me a note who you are and what are your interests. I have extensive filters and try to keep up with people that way. My blog contains a wide range of topics: personal, political, financial, legal. fannish, and medical. I can be silly and serious. cranky and goofy -often in the same post. I have a very twisted sense of humor - if you think something is funny, more likely than not I am intending it to be funny. And sometimes I am intending it to be so even when you don't think it is funny. My humor requires a great deal of ....humour. And last if you are reading this journal or if you've asked to be added to my friends list to read locked posts - you are agreeing to this. Read it. And then if you want to be added to my friends list, drop me a comment with some info on who you are, what topics you are interested in and that you've read and agreed to the things I need in order for me to feel comfortable inviting you into the more private areas of my 'home.' However, if I do not add you to my reading list, please do not take it personally. I also use tracking notifications in lieu of 'friending' to follow specific posts on other people's journals.

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find.....

Are we there yet? And where are the flying cars?
PS. Nothing posted on my blog or in any of my comments is legal advice. From time to time this journal will provide background on legal issues; it does not provide legal advice. Legal advice is tailored to the facts of your particular situation. If you need legal advice, consult an attorney.

Guardian drama visual appreciation post

[Unknown LJ tag] posted: Guardian drama visual appreciation post
Pretty much every day I see something go by along the lines of "Guardian drama is such trash, lol." I get tired of seeing this opinion accepted as prevailing wisdom & gospel, so I decided to do a post about what a beautiful show it is and some of the reasons why I am so in love with it.

I'm going to start with the special effects because that seems to be one of the biggest problems people have. Do I think all the FX look good? Nope. In fact, there are times (e.g., youchu) when I wish that instead of having a clunky CG effect they would've made do with suggestive sound effects & lighting and used the money they spent on CG for a few more extras in Dixing. But it is what it is, and I evaluate the show on its own terms. None of the FX made me stop watching the show because I was invested in the characters and interested in the story from the get-go.

Saving Yahoo Groups - fandom representation?

[Unknown LJ tag] posted: Saving Yahoo Groups - fandom representation?
So here's the final call: If you want more groups saved, come help. If you want a list of groups for you to save, join our Discord and ask. (Link found here.) I can run a search of a partial (it's impossible to get a complete list out there - we're having to do all manner of processing data to get what we've got) list of groups for any keyword or keyword combination, or search specific categories for more groups than can be found in the directory itself, and I'm happy to do so.

But please don't show up later and wonder why we didn't save your favorite fandom, Western or non-Western.

Guardian: An Introduction.

[Unknown LJ tag] posted: Guardian: An Introduction.
It is, in fact, the most front-and-center gay romance I've ever seen in a fantasy series, as well as probably being the most satisfying gay romance I have ever seen in any TV series, period. The relationship between the main couple is central to the plot, it is well developed, it has immensely strong and genuine emotions, and it is intense and sweet and angsty and absolutely believable every step of the way.

Windows 10 - Missing "Recent Folders?"

 
File Explorer Quick Access has Recent Folders pinned but it vanishes.. - Windows 10 Help Forums
So File Explorer Quick Access shows Recent Folders, because I pinned it to be there: But, when you go to "Save as" dialog box, Recent Folder

If you’ve moved to Windows 10, you may have noticed you have lost access to Recent Folders…instead they show “Frequent Folders”. There is a way to permanently turn this back on so that it works inside your browser, Word and all other programs. 

Another set of instructions here: https://www.dragonblogger.com/windows-10-tutorials-restore-recent-places-function-to-windows-10/
