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.'

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.

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
Farscape
Firefly
Supernatural
X-Files - some zines listed on Fanlore

5. Wanna Know How Your Ancestors Produced Their Fan Fiction?
Read "Fandom Before Computers"

quick update

am working on Vividcon plans. we just spent 4 days trying to trap an injured feral cat on our property (we were successful. or rather all the people who did the work were. I was cheerleading and getting sunburned) so we've fallen waaaaay behind.  and today we are off to see a specialist that we've been trying to see for 10 months (he travels doing medical research). and [personal profile] xlorp is in the midst of emergency coverage for 2 co-workers who are out on family leave/vacation. and....

Calibre and Kindle for PC or Mac

 Copying and pasting from [personal profile] arduinna

"I somehow missed that this was happening a few months back, so maybe other people did, too.

My Kindle for PC updated itself silently to version 1.19, which is compatible with Amazon's latest formatting. This is great for being able to use the new formatting! This is not so great if you use Calibre to manage your library. Calibre can't read or even recognize the new format, so can't import your books.

If you use Calibre, the easiest thing to do is to uninstall Kindle 1.19 and reinstall the older version, 1.17, and make sure that the "automatically update" box is unchecked. 

The 
Mobileread forum has a thread on how to do this, including direct links to safe downloads of v 1.17 on Amazon. It also has instructions for other methods, if you don't want to downgrade your Kindle for PC/Mac."

Photobucket Dead Links

 from [personal profile] aethel :

"Photobucket stopped allowing hotlinking, breaking 15 years worth of images on webpages. I never used photobucket so it took a while before it dawned on me that old bandom picspams and concert reviews might now be gone :__(. Over on twitter some podficcers were discussing image hosting alternatives, and dropbox was suggested; I tried it and it works pretty well! You have to change the provided link from http://www.dropbox.com/s/... to http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/...

Arrows Series (Lackey) In Ebook Format

I wanted to read this in ebook format - but none of the libraries seem to offer it in eBook format (or any electronic format: Kindle, PDF etc). I already own the books, but is this available anywhere to borrow for online reading?
