Mary Crawford Fanzine Collection

  • TxAM-CRS C000247
  • Collectie
  • 1976-2010

This collection consists of fanzines, mostly fanfiction, involving the television shows Star Trek: The Original Series and Starsky & Hutch, with one additional fanzine devoted to Multimedia.)

The majority of the contents in this collection consist of fanfiction. Fanfiction 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 Crawford 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.

Slash and het (that is, items dealing with opposite-sex relationships) 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, (g) indicates gen material.

K'Kathy Fanzine Collection

  • TxAM-CRS C000369
  • Collectie
  • 1988-2014

This collection consists of a variety of media fanzines, mostly from the British television show The Professionals, but also including smaller numbers of fanzines from The Man From U.N.C.L.E., The Sentinel, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and several other media properties.

The majority of the content is fanfiction. Almost all the fanworks in this collection are identified as "slash,” referring 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.

"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 (s) or het (h), the item is slash. (g) indicates gen material. (h) indicates het material.

The collection also includes substantial numbers of fanvids (songvids). "Vidding" refers to the fannish activity of creating a music video (a 'fanvid') consisting of clips from various movies or TV shows set to particular pieces of music. Some vids utilize a single media universe, others involve multiple ones. The music that accompanies the clips is selected by the vidder in order to drive a particular narrative or to make a point about the characters or story being shown. Often these points are subversive of the accepted canon (for example, a vidder might use judiciously selected clips to suggest that two or more characters have a romantic relationship, whereas in "real life" no such relationship is stated or implied).

Finally, the collection includes a number of CDs containing images and stories from the yaoi genre of animated Japanese media. Yaoi, like slash, focuses on sexual or romantic relationships between male characters, as well as several examples of fan art from the television show Supernatural.

Marijane Wernsman Collection of Marion Zimmer Bradley Research Materials

  • TxAM-CRS C000368
  • Collectie
  • 1955-2014

This collection contains research materials relating to the author Marion Zimmer Bradley (1930-1999), collected by Dr. Marijane Werdsman of Texas Tech University. The materials were collected as part of a prospective biography of Bradley that Werdsman had intended to write, but the project fell apart when accusations arose in 2014 that Bradley had sexually abused her daughter Moira when Moira was a child.

Most of the materials were obtained from various Internet websites, and include materials relating to Bradley, to her fantasy world Darkover, and to the various online fan communities devoted to Bradley and her work.

Robert Duncan Milne Collection

  • US TxAM-C C000261
  • Collectie
  • 1879-1889

This collection consists of a group of thirty issues of The Argonaut (1879-1889) containing twenty-three science-fiction stories by Robert Duncan Milne, some in two or three parts. References to "Moskowitz" indicate his edition of eleven stories by Milne, Into the Sun (West Kingston, RI: Donald M. Grant, Publisher, 1980). Eighteen of the stories in this lot were not published in Moskowitz's edition and have never been reprinted, to the best of our knowledge.

The time period covered in this lot is 1879 to 1889. The Argonaut was generally printed on good, non-pulpy paper and, barring abuse, remains in good condition and can be handled with due care without fear of crumbling paper. The Argonaut was a weekly literary newspaper published in San Francisco starting in 1878 and running well into the 20th century. It contained political commentary as well as departmental reviews of books, drama, food, fashion, etc. Ambrose Bierce wrote weekly columns during the first two and a half years of its existence. The editors had a penchant for weird and fantastic fiction and published such material by W. C. Morrow, Emma Frances Dawson, Robert Duncan Milne and a host of other minor authors, as well as offering translations of European material in this vein. Milne was evidently popular among The Argonaut readers, for his stories are often featured on the front page.

The manuscript, in addition to the text of the novel, contains several illustrations from Lee, a description of the novel's structure, a name guide for the use of the manuscript's typist, and a list of chapter lengths. A 2014 note from Lee on the first page notes that the first few pages of the manuscript (the Prologue) are missing.

Also included is a photocopy of the typescript (with handwritten edits) of Lee's 2010 short story collection Disturbed By Her Song, published by Lethe Press. Along, with Lee, Esther Garber, and her half-brother, Judas Garbah is credited as the authors of the work.

  • Collectie
  • 1966-1997

This collection contains fanzines and some scattered other materials relating to the television series Star Trek: The Original Series[TOS] (1966-1969). The driving force behind most of the stories in the collection - as reflecting the cultural interests of collection donor Holly Brown - is the close friendship between the characters Captain James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock. However, stories in the collection do involve many different characters and situations.

The majority of the contents in this collection consist of fan fiction. Fan fiction is the name given to literary or artistic productions created by fans about the 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. Holly Brown is herself a slash writer, and much of her collecting was driven by her interest in slash.

Another substantial portion of the collection consists of "het" material. "Het", like slash, refers to fanworks featuring sexual or romantic content, but with opposite-sex relationships. "Gen" stories are those that, speaking broadly, involve the more standard sorts of adventures one might encounter in the television series or other original source material, or that do not involve sexual content as a focus of the story.

Gen and het items are identified as such on the item folder. If an item is not identified as gen or het, it is to be assumed that the item is slash.

A small portion of the collection involves media productions other than Star Trek[TOS]. These include the show's sequel series Star Trek: The Next Generation[TNG] as well as anthologies of multimedia fanfiction featuring stories from many different sources.

Other, smaller portions of the collection include copies of script drafts from various episodes of Star Trek[TOS] and Star Trek: The Animated Series[TAS], as well as program books and other materials from a number of science fiction conventions.
