Victoria McManus Collection

  • TxAM-CRS C000459
  • Coleção
  • 1979 - 2022

This collection contains manuscripts and other materials relating to the literary career of science fiction, fantasy, paranormal romance, and erotica writer Victoria McManus, who writes under the names "Victoria Janssen" and "Elspeth Potter". Materials in this collection include manuscripts and drafts of McManus' published and unpublished work, correspondence, contracts and financial documentation, and convention materials.

Also included are large numbers of fanzines, particularly for the British show *Blake's 7", for which McManus wrote a number of stories.
Some of the fanzines is identified as "slash” (s) or "het" (h). "Slash" refers to fanworks that feature same-sex relationships and are sometimes (though not always) sexually explicit. In slash, sexual identity, sexuality and/or romance are often the centers of the story, rather than the conventional adventures featured in more traditional fanworks. "Het" refers to fanworks featuring sexual or romantic content, but with opposite-sex relationships. "Gen" (more standard stories containing no sexual content) and het items are identified as such on the item folder. If an item is not identified as slash or het, it is to be assumed that the item is slash..

Media Fanzine Collection

  • TxAM-CRS C000150
  • Coleção
  • 1961 - 2022

The Media Fanzine Collection is comprised of numerous pre-Internet fan-produced publications that document their involvement in a particular fandom. Fandoms are based around media productions such as movies (i.e. the Star Wars film series) or television shows (i.e. Star Trek in its various iterations). Although traditionally most media fandoms involve productions from the science fiction and fantasy genres, there are numerous exceptions.

The majority of the contents in this collection consists of fan fiction. Fan fiction is the name given to literary or artistic productions created by fans about the characters, settings and events of the media universe in which they are interested. A substantial portion of the fanworks in the Media Fanzine Collection is identified as "slash”. "Slash" refers to fanworks that feature same-sex relationships and are sometimes (though not always) sexually explicit. In slash, sexual identity, sexuality and/or romance are often the centers of the story, rather than the conventional adventures featured in more traditional fanworks.

A small portion of the collection consists of "het" material. "Het", like slash, refers to fanworks featuring sexual or romantic content, but with opposite-sex relationships.

Slash and het items are identified as such on the item folder. If an item is not identified as slash or het, it is to be assumed that the item is “gen” (containing no sexual or romantic content. Both slash and het items have been specifically identified because of their importance as highly visible fan fiction subcultures. (s) indicates slash material. (h) indicates het material.

Fanzines are organized alphabetically by fandom name, and thereunder by title. The term “Multimedia” refers to anthologies of material from different fandoms. The term “Crossover” refers to stories in which characters from one or more media universes interact with those from another. (For example, a story in which Mal Reynolds' ship Serenity passed through a wormhole and encountered Captain James T. Kirk's U.S.S. Enterprise would be a Firefly/Star Trek crossover.)

The October 2016 Addendum includes several "friend books", tiny zines used by pre-teens and teens in the 1970s and 1980s as a way of finding other like-minded fans in the pre-Internet era. Some "friend books" were sized small enough to fit into an international envelope (2-3 inches), and consisted of no more than a few pages. The covers were pages cut from magazines or advertisement and were stapled or taped into a booklet shape. Many were multi-fandom, but some focused on single fandoms like Star Wars. Fans would write their name and address, and list their interests. The book would then passed along to the next fan. When the booklet was filled it was to be mailed back to the original fan. Often times questions were asked (ex: Who is your favorite Star Wars character?)

There are several additional items, including materials from genre conventions, ads and flyers, professional publications that relate to various fandoms, and various items of printed realia.

Sub-Series 1 of the Georgia Barnes Addendum contains maps of the Star Trek universe, and has therefore been filed with other items in the Maps Of Imaginary Places Collection.

Audio-Visual Materials

The collection also contains non-print materials. There are a significant number of fanvids in the collection (and the fandoms for those vids are noted in the finding aid). There are also several DVDs that contain recordings of fanfiction podcasts, from a number of different fandoms.

On Star Trek

Since 1966 there have been 5 non-animated television iterations of the television franchise Star Trek. Each one has its own dedicated fandom (although certainly many Trekkers are fans of multiple series), and each one has a generally accepted denotation. Those denotations are used in this collection, as follows:

Star Trek [TOS] refers to the original series(1966-1969).

Star Trek [TNG] refers to Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994).

Star Trek [DS9] refers to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993-1999).

Star Trek [VGR] refers to Star Trek: Voyager (1995-2001).

Star Trek [ENT] refers to Star Trek: Enterprise (2001-2005).

Science Fiction Radio Show Collection

  • TxAM-CRS C000507
  • Coleção
  • 1967 - 2021

This collection consists of reel-to-reel audio recordings, audio recordings on tape cassette, and digitized recordings of these materials, of interviews conducted on the Science Fiction Radio Show, which ran from 1980-1983. The show was created by David Carson, Keith Johnson, and David Crews and originally broadcast from Odessa College (in Odessa, TX) starting in June 1980. Carson and Johnson had proposed a science fiction course for the college, and when it was denied, they turned instead towards developing a radio show as a way of bringing their interest in science fiction to a wider audience.

Starting in the spring of 1982 (after a hiatus beginning in Fall 1981) and proceeding through the last broadcast on December 31, 1983, the show was syndicated for national broadcasting by the Longhorn Radio Network in Austin. This helped give the show a nationwide following.

The Science Fiction Radio Show conducted interviews with a wide variety of significant personalities over its run, including Stephen R. Donaldson, Gordon R. Dickson (and his about-to-be-published novel The Final Encyclopedia), Philip Jose Farmer (just as he was concluding his Riverworld series), Hal Clement, Theodore Sturgeon, Howard Waldrop, C.J. Cherryh, Poul Anderson, Terry Carr, L. Sprague de Camp, Michael Whelan, Roger Ebert, Jim Henson (interviewed during the production of his film The Dark Crystal), and many others. Some shows were also dedicated to specific subjects, including computers, L. Frank Baum, and science fiction music.

Over the course of its life, the show conducted 81 interviews, most of them lasting 1-2 hours. The Longhorn Radio Network estimated that between 100,000 - 200,000 people listened to the show every week.

The collection includes a few recordings made from other sources than the Science Fiction Radio Show.

Star Trek Klingon Fandom Collection

  • TxAM-CRS C000371
  • Coleção
  • 1981 - 2019

This collection consists of fanworks produced and gathered by fans of the Klingon culture from the Star Trek franchise. Materials include fanzines, art, club newsletters, and other objects of creative expression.

Klingons represent an active subset of the larger Star Trek fan community, and have been so for several decades. Klingon fans are particularly visible because of their frequent involvement in often-elaborate cosplay (that is, the use of costumes and accessories to represent specific characters, often personae created by the participants themselves).

The Klingons are an aggressive race of humanoid warriors, first seen in the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Errand of Mercy" (1967). The Klingons started out as major adversaries of the U.S.S. Enterprise crew, Starfleet and the United Federation of Planets. However, as the Star Trek franchise began expanding in 1987 with the debut of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Klingons evolved from enemies into uneasy allies, and numerous episodes of TNG and later Star Trek series were devoted to exploring aspects of Klingon culture. They continue to occupy a major position in the overall Star Trek universe.

Klingon fandom is most notable for its adoption of the Klingon language. Klingon is a real (albeit artificially constructed) language with its own system of grammar, structure and rules of pronunciation. It was originally created by linguist Marc Okrund in the mid-1980s for the Star Trek films and was adopted into later iterations of the television franchise. Klingon has been expanded on by interested fans and language hobbyists to the point where a number of literary works have been translated from English to Klingon. Many Klingon-related fan creations are written at least partially in the Klingon language, and it is not uncommon for dedicated fans to speak it amongst themselves.
