Of Dreams and Schemes Press is a gen fanzine publisher. They have been publishing from 1981 until the present.

From the publisher's website:

In 1981 three of us got together and decided it would be "fun" to put out a fanzine. Little did we know what a mania we had signed on for. During the past twenty-there years, we have put out numerous issues of our flagship zine, Of Dreams and Schemes. But...we kept getting caught by this fandom or that fandom and forayed into single fandom zines along the way. At last count, the press has done 40 zines. The editorial staff has dwindled, and now there's only one maniac...er editor left, although the other two are still sometimes coerced into helping.

All of the zines are edited--we're not perfect, but we have always done our best to make the stories in the zines read well. Most of the zines have color covers (at least the newer ones) and all are spiral bound. Older zines have interior art, but the newer ones don't have as much. (Where have the artists gone!!??) I do use plenty of graphics and other spot art to break up the text however.

From the publisher Feb. 26, 2011: Of Dreams and Schemes' flagship publication, the multi-media Genzine, Of Dreams and Schemes was published from 1981 until 2010. The final issue, No. 25 went to press in May, 2010. The press is still active, and is planning one gen zine based on the show White Collar for 2011.

Due to changes in AOL, we no longer have a website. The editor may be contacted via the listed e-mail.
