Laurie Huff is a zine editor, writer, filker, and artist. She won a 1981 TrekStar Award for best editor.

From a 1977 Bio

Laurie got into fandom in the summer of 1975 when she read STL!, and attended the Chicago ST con [1] , then later began writing to fellow fans, and contacted the STW.

Laurie belongs to Starfleet Command and Trekkies United, and is working on a zine, Galactic Discourse. She is heavily into tape and letter correspondence, film clips, filksongs, zine collecting/editing, attending cons, and a little fan writing. Her favorite ST aspect is the character relationship, especially Kirk/Spock, and she is also interested in Starsky & Hutch, SF, and crafts. [2]

About "Precessional"

Precessional was a very influential zine.

From Boldly Writing:

This was one of the "The Enterprise is a distraction to the real story of Star Trek, which is, of course, about Kirk and Spock and their friendship" stories. The ship plunges into the atmosphere of a planet (with everyone else aboard) early in the story, leaving Kirk and Spock stranded. The remaining narrative resembles a character study more than a science fiction tale. The high popularity of the story illustrated the rapidly diminishing influence of science fiction among Star Trek fanzine readers and writers.
