Another Sky is a gen Star Wars zine with an emphasis on Luke Skywalker stories.

The flyer for issue #2 says it accepts "positively no slash and no Han-starring fiction." A note regarding swear words: "Note to readers: We allowed the use of the expletive 'f--k' in this [issue #4], and one previous issue. It does not, and will not, appear in any others. -- The Editors."

Twelve issues have been published.

Some of the zine is now online; however the site was last updated in 2010 so it remains unclear if more issues will be put online.
