Reactions and Reviews

I'm very impressed! This issue of CHEKOV'S STATION is a lovely example of the kind of a job a fan group can do if they are really earnest, enjoy what they are doing, and are eager to learn. Upon leafing through this full-sized, attractively bound magazine, I am impressed by the excellent layout and beautiful photos. There are all sorts of people here—members of the club, photos from conventions of Walter Koenig (lots!), and George Takei (in a guest section). And there is plenty of artwork,ranging from 3 fair stories with Chekov in a prominent role, an interview with Walter, and a sizeable report (with lots of good photos) of the recent Philadelphia convention. Recommended.[1]
