Off the Record is a slash Stargate SG-1 fanzine.

It is an all Jack/Daniel sister zine to the gen AU and “through the quantum mirror” type zine, Splinters.


From the publisher: "The existence of alternate realities has been firmly established as “canon” on the show. Authors have taken an episode and rewritten it in some way, creating an alternate universe. Or they have written a completely original tale about an alternate reality SGC. What-ifs or alternate universes altogether!"
