Submission Request

From July 1993 GAZ: "It's wild! It's wacky! It's the silliest QL zine in existence (we hope)! If you're tired of doom and gloom and death and dying in your QL stories, here's a zine with a difference (and what a difference!), we're dedicated to the funniest Leaps Sam's ever had the more ridiculous, the better. We'd especially like crossovers with sitcoms from the '50s, '60s and '70s. We already have a QL/Brady Bunch story and a proposed QL/TT story (okay, it's not that silly, but it's FUN!). Need ideas? Here are a few suggestions: Patty Duke, Dobie Gillis, Green Acres, Mork & Mindy, WKRP, The Partridge Family need we go on? Or come up with your own! We dare you! Send SASE for submissions guidelines"

Flyer Filk

From a flyer for the second issue (which appears to be a filk to the tune of The Beverly Hillbillies):

Come and read a buncha stories 'bout a guy named Sam
Who leaps about time to help people out of jams.
But then one day he was hijacked by some loons
And stuck inside a fanzine that was sillier than "Dune."
