Revenge of the Wind Rider


Author(s): Roberta Debono

Book Series: Fan Produced Books
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1984
Condition: Very Good
Printing: 3rd
ISBN: N/A

--Summary--
From the bridge of a captured Klingon warship, Saavik of Vulcan watched the planet Genesis explode into flames and knew that while the body of Terran scientist David Marcus, the only man she had ever loved, was consumed in that fire, she had brought away with her a part of his being, in his unborn child that she carried.

Now, eight years later, her son Daniel, a brilliant young boy with his father's green eyes and golden hair and his mother's pointed ears and Vulcan mind, is seven years old and must pass through a Vulcan Coming-Of-Age Ceremony, the Var Lan, in a nightmare Valley of monsters and madness.

While Daniel faces the hideous Soul-Eater ion the Valley, the mysterious Wind Rider plans a terrifying revenge against her lover, Spock, her enemy, Kirk, and the former crew of the Enterprise, using the power of the Vortex to enslave her foes, and threaten destruction of the Universe itself.

Revenge of the Wind Rider features Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and the original crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and introduces the characters of Young Star Fleet. The story takes the immortal characters on a voyage that affirms the Star Trek dream: humanism, courage, love, the search for knowledge, and the willingness to understand what is different, or alien, without blasting it out of existence. It is an allegory of hope and renewal.

Notes: None.

Boldly Writing: A Trekker Fan and Zine History, 1967-1987


Author(s): Joan Marie Verba

Book Series: Fan Produced Books
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1996
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0965357546

--Summary--
When Star Trek began in 1966, it instantly captured the attention of science fiction fans, and gained an attentive audience. When NBC threatened to cancel the show after the second season, the fans wrote in, demanding that it be returned to the air. After the third season, Paramount, NBC, and industry experts felt Star Trek was past. But the fans did not. They started clubs, organized conventions, published newsletters, and kept writing to Paramount to ask that Star Trek be revived. Through these actions, they kept interest in the show alive and flourishing. At last, fan efforts resulted in the Star Trek movies, and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Currently, Star Trek lives on in four series -- and the adventure continues.

Boldly Writing chronicles all of these fan efforts, and recognizes the most valuable resource of Star Trek: its fans. The trends, obstacles, hard work, and success of the revival efforts are detailed through the first 20 years of fan publications. Author Joan Marie Verba has been an active fan since the very beginning of Star Trek, and a zine reader, writer, publisher, and collector since 1969.

"Joan Marie Verba brings back to life the heady days of Star Trek fandom, chronicling the fight to revive the original series and detailing the controversy and the gossip that fueled the first twenty years and gave birth to generations of wonderful poets and writers. I couldn't stop myself from dipping into this fascinating history."
- Siddig El Fadil/Alexander Siddig, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

"Thank you for your Boldly Writing. I found it most informative, especially in light of where [the] Star Trek fanzine is now. It's come a long way. Congratulations and continued success."
- Andrew Robinson, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

"I have nothing but praise for this monumental work!"
- Jacqueline Lichtenberg, co-author of Star Trek Lives!

"Little did I know on September 8, 1966 that watching a new television show would profoundly change my life. Star Trek has been inextricably woven into my existence ever since. In Boldly Writing, Joan Marie Verba chronicles the height of the fanzine phenomenon... Joan's book is an amazing reminder of all those stories we shared, those dreams we dreamed, as we went where no fandom had gone before."
- Jean Lorrah, author of The Vulcan Academy Murders, The IDIC Epidemic, Metamorphosis, and Survivors

"This book pulls together an incredible amount of information about the history of fandom and does a major service for anyone who either wants to relive those exciting years or to better understand how Star Trek emerged as such a national and international phenomenon. I'll give you a clue. If Star Trek lives, it's because of what early fans like Verba made of it. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in fandom (which increasingly means anyone interested in popular culture)."
- Henry Jenkins, author of Textual Poachers: Televison Fans and Participatory Culture

Star Trek Fans and Costume Art


Author(s): Heather R. Joseph-Witham

Book Series: Fan Produced Books
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1996
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0878059202

--Summary--
A study of the phenomenal attire that unites Trekkers

Fans of science fiction and of Star Trek are legion. Huge numbers of these attend their conventions attired in highly creative costumes that identify them as "Trekkers" and arouse a spirit of community.

Many are affiliated with fan clubs whose members buy or create such attire to be worn at conventions and public events. They come from all walks of life and show up extravagantly costumed not only at science-fiction venues but also at charity fund-raisers and public-service meetings. Klingon and Federation members may appear in the actual world of strip malls and shopping centers as they stage food-fight wars in behalf of the homeless. They surface anywhere they can make a statement about the positive ideals they feel are fostered in the Star Trek universe.

Trekkers find a sense of friendship, family, and high ideals within fandom. A gamut of reasons can be listed for why Trekkers costume themselves. For some it is a public way of demonstrating affection for Gene Roddenberry's creation. For some, dressing as a Klingon expresses empowerment for women. For others, it is escapism for pure fun.

Their alien garb and motivations for wearing it are explored here in this fascinating book that connects expressions of contemporary folk art, folklore, and popular culture.

Trekkers: True Stories by Fans for Fans


Author(s): Nikki Stafford, editor

Book Series: Fan Produced Books
Book Number:

Copyright: ©2002
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 1550225030

--Summary--
Trekkers and Trekkies are considered the world's most famous and unique fan base. Since Star Trek first appeared in 1966, fans have embraced creator Gene Roddenberry's vision, and have come together to do charitable work and try to shape their lives to include his principles and values. And yet, outsiders who don't watch the show tend to look at Trek fans with a sense of amusement.

This book, for the first time, gives Trekkers a chance to tell their stories of why the show means so much to them. Stories include:

* a woman who became the president of William Shatner's fan club, and reveals the funny and child-like side of the man who played Captain Kirk

* a man who discovered the original series right before being shipped off to Vietnam, and used the show's message of peace and harmony as his hope and strength while overseas

* a fan who started his own cable access television Star Trek fan club, and watched it grow to a fan phenomenon of its own, with many of the stars appearing on it to be interviewed

* a devoted fan who has turned his love of all things Trek into a full-time job as a "professional Trekkie"

* a woman who lost a beloved friend in a tragic accident, and who banded together with other friends to perform the Klingon Death Howl at his funeral

These stories and many others are written by the fans themselves, and show a loving, intelligent, and extremely kind and generous group of people who all have one thing in common: Star Trek.
