Reactions and Reviews: Issue 22

Now in it's 22nd issue, IDIC is a hefty bimonthly publication from the editors of Enterprise Log Entries, one of fandom's longest running fiction zines (now in it's 87th issue). Averaging 80 pages per issue (the most recent issue is up to 100 pages), IDIC a a digest-size zine printed on A4 paper. With over 700 subscribers, the editors have a hefty contributor base upon which to draw for articles and letters, which is clearly reflected in the contents of each issue. The zine is divided into several sections, including news, the Postbag (letters), essays and articles, book, zine. and video reviews, as well as con and club announcements and classifieds. The largest section is always the Postbag averaging 30-40 pages. After reading all issues of IDIC, can tell you that if you enjoy lively letter zines then you owe it to yourself to check out this publication. It has one of the best letter columns of any Trek publication I've read in the past couple of years (barring this publication, of course!). IDICt so carries a large number of timely reviews, essays and articles by a number of writers. Recent entries have included reports of several British and American conventions, a report on Sea Trek (the convention-on-a-cruise), the BBC's banning of "The High Ground." a humorous speculation on the presence of kitchens on the Enterprise, an episode guide to the first season of the proposed but never filmed second classic Star Trek TV series, as well as essays on the merits of the two captains and speculations on Janice Rand's lost years in Starfleet. Anyone interested in Trek. TNG or Classic, can find lots of interest in IDIC. I would recommend giving this zine a try. However, American readers should know that the BBC is only now broadcasting third season episodes of TNG This somewhat limits the scope of discussions for those American readers preparing to enjoy the sixth season this fall. Be that as it may. I think you'll still find the zine well worth your money.[1]
