fanzines


A little over a year ago, fan friend Stacy Doyle passed away. Her partner Liz asked us to help find a home for her fanzine  and fanvid collection. One Sunday in Feb, a few of us* gathered together to catalogue, box and shipp her fanzine collection.

A collection in her name has now been established up at Texas A&M University. On Stacy's bio page Liz wrote:

""What can I say about Stacy … she was generous of her time, friendly, loving, and a born caregiver. She was at her happiest when she was helping someone. It didn’t matter if the help was big or small. Helping you figure out your new phone, computer or getting your VCR/DVD to talk to your TV or helping you decorate for Halloween or Christmas or helping you move.

Once she discovered fandom she was in 7th heaven, as they say. She found she wasn’t the only one into Star Trek, Starsky and Hutch, Man from U.N.C.L.E, and so forth that was just the beginning of her fanish pursuits. She convinced her Mom to drive her to conventions in Sacramento, yes, she had to be driven, as she didn’t have her drivers license yet. Once she got it and that freedom it garnered her, she was able to go to local conventions by herself. As she went to more and more conventions she discovered costumes, zines, and vids!..."

*A huge thank you to Mishie, [personal profile] franzeska and [personal profile] xlorp for doing the hard work in getting the collection to TAMU.
