Scope and content

This collection contains materials relating to the creation, development, and printing of the series of Star Trek fanzines devoted to the Kraith Universe. The Kraith Universe was a shared Star Trek alternate universe created by Jacqueline Lichtenberg in 1970, and six collected volumes of Kraith stories were originally published between 1972-1980 by publisher/editor Carol Lynn and her associate Debbie Goldstein.

The series contains correspondence, copies of the Kraith fanzines themselves, and related materials such as story drafts. A large part of the collection consists of printing masters for the Kraith zines as well as a few other zines published by Lynn.
