One Night Stand is a K/S zine which was, quite simply, typed, edited, and published in one night. Why? Well, we're still asking ourselves that question. If we figure out an appropriate line of bullshit, we'll fill you in.
Put simply, a One Night-Stand is a life from lifelessness. Er... Wrong speech. Re-load. Replay. One-Night Stand is a K/S zine which was, quite simply, typed, edited, and published in one night. Why? Well, we're still asking ourselves that question.....
ONE NIGHT STAND is a joint publication of Pon Farr Press (and you thought you'd never hear from them again, eh?) and Wendy Rathbone. And yes, Alled Navesih and Andrea Arat are pseudonyms, chosen because certain high-ranking corporations and publishing outfits might not take kindly to the K/S genre by two struggling pro writers. So much for IDIC.
[reminders to order other Pon Farr zines, snipped]So... what we have here is a joint effort by two K/S editors for a variety of reasons -- the cost of which is fun. We both hope you enjoy ONE NIGHT STAND in the tradition in which it is intended.

One Night Stand 2 was published in July 1984 and is 63 pages long. It was published by Wendy Rathbone and according to the editorial, typed up in "one looooong night."From the editorial:
The theme, quite by accident, is this issue appears to be "what happened after... fill in the blank... Trek episode." We have stories dealing with the after time of "Requiem for Methuselah," "The Naked Time," and "The City on the Edge of Forever." There is also the usual smattering of poetry, three of which were inspired by the movie The Search for Spock. I hope you will find them of interest. Personally, I liked this movie better than any of them. As many Trek fans probably are, I'm avidly awaiting the fourth...

One Night Stand 3 was published in April 1985 and is 60 pages long. It was published by Wendy Rathbone.From the editorial:
I don't remember if this issue was done in one night or not, but it was done quickly (I'm a very fast typist.) But the contents were created in much more than one night. I want to explain that the the writers contributing to this zine work very hard. Just because I create the zine rather fast does not mean the content suffers....I have also included more photographs since that seems to be a very popular item in the ONS's. I received many letters from people who really like the idea of Trek photos in a zine. So I am continuing that trend. Oh, and speaking of letters, thank you to all the people who have written me expressing their opinions about my zines. All letters of comment (LoCs) are welcome and though I don't always have time to answer every one of them I really do appreciate them. I like feedback. I can take criticism (as long as it's nicely intended and not petty) and I do take reader's suggestions to hand when going on to do the next zine.

An ad for it in On the Double says: "An issue comprised of vignettes & poetry. A big hit with all my readers."From the editorial:
Hello, and welcome to One Night Stand 4/5, the quickie zine of quickies, those one night stands we all dream about, or remember, or forget, or whatever.... Therefore, it is fitting that this zine contain only poetry and vignettes (and short, short stories all under ten pages in length}. These one nighters are for you the reader to enjoy and, hopefully, remember as you add this dirt rag to your extensive collections. I hope to continue the trend of printing only vignettes in future issues of One Night Stand. In fact, I'm currently accepting submissions for issue #6. Poetry and stories less than ten pages are actively being sought. The reason this issue is a double issue is I realized that I had let ONS lapse. There hasn't been a new one in over a year and I wanted to make the comeback of ONS special and memorable. It is, aftarall, the year of Star Trek's 20th anniversary, and since this zine will premiere at the 20th anniversary Trek Convention in Anaheim on June 21, I wanted to make it unique . And it is special, I think. I had a great time putting it all together and I have sane wonderful contributors this issue as well.
