ETA: All gone! Thanks!

I have some books and zines (plus a few records, D&D items, and a lunchbox) of potential fannish interest, which are all up for grabs for the cost of shipping. I wish we had transporters, so people could just swing by and pick what they wanted, but alas, not yet.

All of these items were enjoyed, but I have to reduce my belongings by a drastic amount in the immediate future. Don't worry about anything left over--they'll all find a good home, one way or another, be that a local book/comic/game shop, or (for the zines) the Fanzine Archives at the University of Iowa.

Anyway, browse, enjoy. If you see something that strikes your fancy, comment or email me at dorinda at, and it's yours.

Cowley is dead, CI5 has been disbanded, villains are everywhere, and our heroes don't know who they can trust. Except each other, of course. An exciting read."

What magnificent stuff! Not that I want any of it, but my life is richer for knowing of the existence of the Star Trek record and an MST3K lunchbox.

:D So true. They are delightful things, one and all, and have enriched my fannish experience. Not to mention protected my lunch!

I would love Alien Brothers and Thyla 17, if they're not claimed yet.

They're yours! And they're wonderful. Alien Brothers is a lovely, jam-packed, well-designed classic zine, with fantastic color art pieces inside; T'hy'la 17 has a gorgeous piece of cover art, as well as the original version of Killa's story "No Brighter Moment"--I do understand her re-editing it before putting it online, I do, but I'll always miss the original story's final image of leaping, wings outspread, into the sun. ♥_____♥

Oh, man, it's like my birthday! Could I have "Overtures" and the Starsky & Hutch Golden Books? To save postage maybe you could mail them to [personal profile] frostfire (she's in Chicago) and then she could bring them to me next time she's in my neighborhood. I'll have to ask her. *G*

Certainly! And another possible option: if frostfire is amenable, I'm actually driving through Chicago on my way out of town to my new job, and would be willing to meet up with her and pass the stuff hand-to-hand.

Livia has just now let me know that this was happening--is the trip still in the future? I would be delighted to meet up if possible. My one ongoing schedule issue is I'm taking an evening class right now so I'm busy 5-9 Mon-Thu.

Also...could I request for myself--well, lots of stuff, I suppose, but since it's been a little while since you posted, I suppose I won't feel guilty. I'd love to have the Star Trek Concordance, Puzzle and Quiz books, Black Fire, The IDIC Epidemic, and Strangers from the Sky, annnnd Not What You Expect and Where the Worms Are, if no one else has claimed them yet!

I didn't realize it had been so long since I commented! Every night this week I have just gone completely spaced out after work. If I have to pay extra for postage I guess it's my own fault.

(You totally need "Strangers from the Sky," it's like four different amazing fanfics all mashed up together in that awesome/ridiculous way that early TOS novels do so well.)

Yes indeed! I'll be coming down to Chicago around midday on Saturday 23 July, and leaving on the morning on Monday 25 July. I'm staying near the intersection of Sheridan Rd. & Lawrence Ave (and I have a car, so I could also meet you somewhere else). Does that sound manageable? Drop me a line at dorinda at thechicagoloop dot net, if you want to plan specifics.
