A Sort of Homecoming is the first novel in the Luminous Times Universe, a shared universe created by Fern Marder and Carol Walske. Only 10 copies were printed in 1988 and the zine contains 190 pages. The zine also contains reprints of articles about U2 along with black and white photos of both U2 and the Robin of Sherwood cast members. It was accompanied by an custom audio cassette mixtape of music and both were wrapped inside a vinyl case.
Like other parts of the Luminous Times Universe, the zine was circulated among fans. This led to groups setting up informal reading events. At one convention, fans who had passed around "A Sort of Homecoming read sections aloud at room parties. Some friends threatened, tongue in cheek, to mount a write in campaign to award the zine a FanQ award - although no one could agree on what category the zine should fit in.
