Hibernation Sickness is a quarterly mini-zine, a Star Wars anthology that ran for eighteen issues. Each issue runs about 24 pages and contains fiction, poetry and art.

The zine Crossfire Zone picks up where this zine ends, at least in terms of continuation of some of the chaptered fiction.

Regarding Photocopying

In response to Ethics and Etiquette: A Proposal for the Buying and Selling of Fanzines and The "Clone Wars" Revisited: "Sorry I missed all the controversy of the past issues [of Southern Enclave], but I'll add my semi-belated declaration here: I, Lisa Thomas, hereby give all fans the permission to make themselves single, not for resale copies of any OOP issues of HIBERNATION SICKNESS for their own personal use. (Issues #1-8 are now officially OOP.)" [1]

Reactions and Reviews

In this day and age, there aren't enough SW zines to satisfy the fans, and the really good ones cost about $20.DO. In the reasonably priced zone, besides the well-known and valued newsletter "Southern Enclave," "Hibernation Sickness" provides a regular dose of the good stuff for the discriminating fan. "Hibernation Sickness" comes to you five times per year for a very modest price: $10.00 per year! Two bucks per issue, this is a treasure trove of short stories and long serials, for example "Back to Bespin," a post-ROTJ novel, that manages to end on a breathtaking cliffhanger in each issue. The segment in issue 15 is bound to increase the pulse rate of all readers. "BtB" deals with the touchy issue of "would you fall out of love just because someone told you that the lady is your sister"? Issue 15 is the two-year anniversary issue, and as such, a good one to review. The cover is a very funny drawing, spoofing "Heir to the Empire." Inside you'll find a collection of past covers, showing a delightful array of b/w drawings from the dead serious to the hilariously funny. Plus, HS contains more than stories: it has reviews (in the anniversary issue, the topic of the dissection is, of course, "Heir"), it has a pile of fandom-related news, poems, LoCs, cartoons, illos, etc. HS proudly advertises itself as the only openly anti-Ewok zine, and its reader have grown fond of the regular Ewok-bashing, that gives them good jokes, fun covers, even a mean T-shirt...HS, now in its third year, deserves to be much better known within the SW fandom, Its stories, poems and illos have that good old Shakespearian ability to swing from the depths of tragedy to the heights of clowning with stylish ease.
