In the 1990s a brave group of Star Wars fans decided to ignore Lucasfilm’s ban on same sex fan fiction, and began publishing Han/Luke fiction. Some of the most beautiful writing and art came from the publisher of the Elusive Lover fanzine series. The zines were hard to get (published in Europe). Some of the fic ended up in the Elusive Lover fanfic archive online, but that website too went offline.

The publisher is now working with Open Doors to import the online fic to AO3. And today, her package of the original fanzine print masters arrived. We will be scanning them and the scans - and the originals - will be donated to the two main fanzine special collections in the US: University of Iowa (originals) and Texas A&M University (scans)
