The Here And Now
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
The Professionals -The Hatstand  and Palely Loitering (with their own LJ here)
Quantum Leap - old list, needs updating
Rat Patrol - Excel spreadsheet here
Real Ghostbusters - here (defunct, last updated 2002). A more current list is here
Robin of Sherwood here
Seaquest here and here
The Sentinel - Loft Library -Slash Zines and Gen Zines
Smallville here
Shadow Chasers here (old archive)
Sherlock Holmes here
Stargate SG1 - old list here
Starsky & Hutch - Pepper's Amazing List With Every Possible Combination Except Pepperoni
Star Trek   - K/S Slash Zines and Star Trek Zinedex (gen/het/slash). An index of stories published in fanzines by title and author can be downloaded from the KirkSpockCentral mailing list (membership required).
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.

Looking for Fanzine lists:
Star Trek - gen/het
Buffy/Angel - some zines listed on Fanlore
Highlander - some zines listed on Fanlore
X-Files - some zines listed on Fanlore

she also rolls. I just used her info to update my fanzine list.very easy to navigate

it's a great list, and so is the S&H Compendium, where she lists just about *everything* there is to know about S&H.

I'm following on the Zinelist - wow, so cool to see all those zine listings.

I'm not sure if this counts for what you're doing, but awhile back I created (with some friends) hell_quarterly for Supernatural. It was designed as an online PDF 'zine that could be downloaded and printed. It's slash and gen and has art. There were 3 editions, all still available for download.

yes, eZines are fine. I'll add them to the SPN list.

I only found 2 issues. Do you have the link to the third?
scarlett_o From: scarlett_o Date: July 18th, 2009 06:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Here are the links to all 3.

I never managed to get the sidebar updated, but there are links to all three at the top of the most recent post of the comm.

I am having trouble ggetting VOL 1 issue 1 - I keep getting this message : Invalid or Deleted File. I tried the link here in your message and I went to the Comm page and tried it from there but I get the same message. Is there any chance you could e-mail it to me at krycekboy@yahoo.com ? Or if there is another link to the volume, I'll try that.
Thanks for your hard work and for sharing your efforts.

This should be the correct link for vol. 1: http://www.mediafire.com/?wemnxenumxv

I'm going to update the comm. Let me know if it doesn't work for you.
valkyrie4clex From: valkyrie4clex Date: June 6th, 2011 01:55 am (UTC) (Link)
This link still took me to VOl. 2-issue 1 which I already downloaded. It's VOL 1 issiue 1 that doesn't come up. Is it that it really isn't VOl 2 iss1 like it says? I'll go adn DL it and open it to see. Thanks.
valkyrie4clex From: valkyrie4clex Date: June 6th, 2011 01:57 am (UTC) (Link)
I just DL'ed it and it is Vol 2 issue 1. Vol 1 continues to elude me :(

Now I know where to leave my fanzines in my will. I've been scanning them to pdf as well. I have a collection of Star Trek, Star Wars, and various other fandom zines from the 70s. I also was the publisher of a fanzine turned semi-prozine then. The first slashfic I ever read was Kirk/Spock and I still have several of those zines.
morgandawn From: morgandawn Date: October 27th, 2010 03:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
I've started parting with a few duplicates and less favorites along with my fanzine flyers to donate them to the fanzine archives. If they have comb binding, I can scan them to pdf, rebind them and donate those too. I'll be at Bascon collecting donations.

my first slash zine was actually a pre-slash gen zine "Spock Enslaved" (who could resist that cover?)

waves hello - I had no idea you were local!

What an awesome list. Thank you for putting this up.

I looked at the QL zine list one, and it goes nowhere. They Wayback Machine can't find the page either. If I find something, I'll let you know. I have most of the QL slash zines in existance, and I'm listing them. But I have maybe half of all QL gen zines in existance. So I can't make a full list.

This is the closest to a list I know of.

Thank you for all the other lists, I have yet to paruse them. I didn't even KNOW there were so many SPN zines! Wow!!! Happy!!
