"Contributors included Betty Bigelow, David Gordon-Mcdonald, Andrew C. Murdoch, Ray Seredin, Warren Oddsson, Bernie Klassen, Amy Morgan, Paula Johanson, Garth Spencer and a host of others. A major West coast zine. Got bigger and better with time, the final issue (V8#3/4) at 110 pages. Always multiple articles, some fiction, and much art. Certainly among the best Trek club zines ever produced in Canada. Editors included: Terry Wyatt, John Willcox Herbert & Alistair Craig.(GS) & (RGC)"
