70's/80's fanzine fanfic online?

After reading about them in old Best of Trek books and Trek: The Printed Adventures, I've been searching the internet, hunting down classic Star Trek fanfic from 70's and 80's fanzines to feed into my e-reader.

Alternate Universe 4 and Kraith are available for free (with authors' permission) at www.simegen.com, but I was wondering if anyone knew if other oldies I've read about like Dreadnought Explorations, Sahaj and Leslie Fish's The Weight have been made available for free download? Google just sends me to sites cataloguing old fanzines.

Thanks.

^ I'll try to remember the names of some other zine titles from back in the day to see if they are online, too. Have you tried the Orion Press website? Randy Landers has been publishing zines since God's dog was a puppy.

LOL And his name was Bingo, and it was a good name...

Re: 70's/80's fanzine fanfic online?

Yes, yes, there is. Our last check of the 348 stories on our website shows that only 12.6% (44) of the stories on the site have subject matter of this type. That means there's more than 300 stories that don't. In all honesty, most fan fiction that's written is relationship-based, and often those relationships are sexual in nature. Some of the stories that are on this site have violence, often perpetrated by the Klingons on our heroes. On the chance that someone doesn't want to read it, each and every story of this nature on our website is clearly marked in red with a warning label for sexual situations, violence, adult themes or other cautionary statements. If this isn't the sort of stuff you want to read, then for heaven's sake, heed the warning labels! And if you see a story that needs a cautionary statement that doesn't have one, then let us know!

But I think we're doing a fine job featuring a variety of material from a variety of writers with a variety of styles and interests. You can check out the Oridex for more information.

I've been reading Orion Press for the last few years and I have to say that the writers there are very talented. They do great work and I hope they keep it up.
