From a Certain Point of View 1 (80 pages) It was published in 1985. A review in Southern Enclave #11 says it "Stresses the upbeat and the humorous, and offers an easy evening of light reading and some rather striking interior colors and cover art."
Half the zines have Han on the front cover and half have Luke. Fans could request which one they wanted.
- Nothing Ever Happens (Running away from home solved six year old Luke Skywalker’s boredom—with a vengeance) (7 pages)
- Cartoonist’s Gallery (6 pages)
- Wedding Bells (Leia’s getting married—but to whom, or what?) (11 pages) by Susan Sizemore. (From a reviewer in Southern Enclave: "The main character has to be one of my favorite fan-created personalities-- Leia's Aunt Aliin, a terribly officious and wry woman who decides that Leia must get married to a rather cumbrous, unattractive prince from a race that refers to women as "things". Much to Leia's rage. Aunt Aliin decides this is the best way to save her rebel niece's life from the Emperor's clutches. Having absolutely no pretensions about itself, this story was thoroughly enjoyable for its freshness and sense of humor.")

From an ad in Southern Enclave: "I'm looking for some good stories and art with our heroes and their childhoods, children, family relationships (maybe Han and Leia's wedding?), etc. As always, FACPOV prefers upbeat, positive pieces with our heroes as a prominent part, but I'll look at well-written dark drama."
