Description from a 1981 AdFrom News of the Rebellion #9:
From a 1981 flyer:
[story titles and descriptions for "Reunion," "Four Preludes (And One Short Epilogue) on Han Solo," "Final Act of Love," and "What's in a Name."] Plus more fiction, including an Obi-wan/Yoda vignette; a tongue in cheek look at what really happened on Ord Mantell between that bounty hunter and Han Solo; a continuation of the final scene of EMPIRE; an insight into Leia's thoughts after that "I'd rather kiss a Wookiee" argument on Hoth. Plus, poetry by Jacqueline Taero, Linda Anne Watson, Christy Cohea; filks, cartoons. Art by Linda Yamashiro, Lori Roney, Tracy Christeansen, Yvonee Zan and others. CARBONITE MANEUVER is tentatively scheduled for a January/February publication. 100 pages. Currently planned to be mimeo produced with offset artwork and covers. Cover art is planned to be printed black on silver stock. CARBONITE MANEUVER will be a limited press run zine -- only as many copies as ordered will be printed and there will be no reprints. $3.00 and a self addressed, stamped envelope for final price notification will reserve a copy and hasten publication.
When the The Fanzine Archives: A Library for the Preservation & Circulation of Fan-created Material, then called "The SW Fanzine Lending Library," was first formed in 1987, it was one of only three zines that specifically asked to not be included.
Five Stories That Were Retitled and Printed Later
"Four Preludes (And One Short Epilogue) on Han Solo or After the Empire Struck Back" by Marcia Brin, is a collection of pieces exploring the possible fate of Han Solo. It is a very, very early example of a sort of Five Things fiction). These stories were discussed in Han and Leia in Fanfiction.Description from the flyer:
A thought provoking collection of four short pieces exploring the possible fate of Han Solo. In "Rovan." Han is dead and Leia is left alone to deal with her grief and an unfillable void in her life. A mission takes her to Rovan an eerie planet where one's dreams and desires become reality, and she must make a painful decision. "The Journey Back," Han Solo is left barely alive and horribly crippled by Jabba's sadism. Abandoned on a backwater planet, preferring to be thought dead than face the pity of his friends and revulsion of the woman he loves, Han is resigned to his fate. But an Imperial surgeon has other ideas. "Recall," Finding himself on a backwater planet with no memory or clues to identity and groping for the key to unlock the mystery of his past, "Stranger" overhears a plot to kidnap and deliver to Darth Vader, a visiting rebel agent, Leia Organa. "Hell Hath No Fury," Jabba has Han and things seem hopeless until Leia decides to offer a bounty of her own on behalf of wherein Leia Organa following up on information from Jabba, finds an unusual piece of statuary while walking through the park one day.
Four of these stories appear to have been re-titled (revised as well?) and published in Bright Center of the Universe #3 in 1993. Summaries below are from that later zine.
- Hell Hath No Fury (Capturing and torturing Han Solo may turn out to be the worst mistake of Jabba’s life -- or it will be, if Leia has her way. Reprinted in Bright Center of the Universe #3 1993.)
- The Journey Back (Jabba has finally taken his revenge on Han Solo. Terribly disfigured by the Hutt’s torturers, can Han ever find the courage to return to the woman he loves?)
- One Day in the Park (Unable to find Han after Jabba has frozen him in carbonite, Leia almost gives up hope.)
- Recall (After being tortured by Jabba, Han is released -- but he no longer remembers who he is or where he came from.)
