Reactions and Reviews: Issue 2

I like this issue very much as I did with the first zine. Both original Trek and Generation combined in the zine. It's good reading for a true Trek fan. Written by first timers as with Julie A. Dickson and Shirley J. Kemarly. Both are wonderful in their own world of writing Trek stories. Among the stories: "Memories," "Trelane's Return," "A Father's Gift," and others. [1]

Generation Gap 6 was published in June 1993 and contains 178 pages.

The art is by Anja Gruber, Sylvia Liske, Beverly Chick, and Christopher Johnson.

From the editor:

This issue is dedicated to Gene Roddenberry, (miss youl). I tried not to change much of the wording of the stories, so if they are wrong it is because the writers themselves wrote the story that way. Special thanks go to Linda McCauley for proof reading the BSG story. I hope that this will bring you many happy hours of reading, and we will look forward to another Generation Gap next year.

Generation Gap 8 was published in July 1995 and contains 37 pages.

From the editorial:

Welcome to Generation Gap #8. We are sorry that we do not have more stories herein.

It seems to me that writer-ship has dropped immensely. We cannot figure out why. And, we hope that in the next Generation Gap we will have more stories for you. We were very disappointed and did not want to delay our deadline any further.

We would also like to take time to thank our many proof readers over the years.

Even though this issue is small we know you will enjoy the stories.

The deadline date for Generation Gap #9 is June 1, 1996. Thanks for your supportI

Happy Reading. Love Live and Prosper, Page
