Issue 1

Beginnings 1 is a 126-page chan slash Star Wars TPM anthology published in 2001. Cover art by Fuumin.

A second edition was published in 2004, digest sized without a color cover or interior art.

From the zine:

This SW:TPM '/' fanzine has underage content and was edited by Morgan over the course of the last year and finally came together in Spring, 2001 in the first printing. It has been a true pleasure to work with everyone on this project and I got far more support than I thought I had any right to get. Many thanks to all the people who contributed, or tried to and ran out of time. It's a better publication for it.

Not enough can be said about the people who were generous enough to donate their works for me to put into print, so I won't try. Enjoy their stories and images and tell them yourself! Authors email addresses are listed at the beginning of their particular tales, and the artists' contact information is listed in the TOC further up on this page. The editor can be reached at [email protected] as is the website for this fanzine at
