Awards and Firsts

She is a multiple FanQ winner, as a fanartist, fanwriter, and zine editor. Her zine, the third issue of Moonbeam in February 1978, was one of the first to include Star Wars fiction. In 1979, Moonbeam also published the very first virtual season in media fandom.


In 2009, she took over maintenance of Mary D. Bloemker's Shadow Chasers website at MaryB's Shadow Chasers Home Page after Mary passed. Deb is currently working on posting (with the contributors' permissions) of the fiction published in her fanzines over the years at her blog at My Life in Fandom. She is posting her art, and art by others who've granted permission at DebWeb Image Galleries, and is hosting classic gen zine fiction at Classic Genzine Fan Fiction Archive.

Fan Comments

I've never met a Deb Walsh-produced zine that I wasn't delighted to have in my zine library (and I've been buying her zines since the days of Moonbeam, back in the 70s).[2]
