  • Datalore (Star Trek: TNG, devoted to Data, gen to slash, was to have a story by Jean Kluge, art by Marty Siegrist and Melody Rondeau, 1989, Xenon Press, see flyer above)
  • Day of Disappearance (Without a Trace, "Day of Disappearance was a planned Without a Trace genzine. In the early years of Without a Trace, I was an enthusiastic fan, and in fact, stuck with the show up until its untimely end. But I didn't keep up with the fandom, having more or less dropped out of media fandom in 2004. When I was active in the fandom, my favorite place to hang out was Your Tax Dollars at Work, but it's been so long since I hung out there, my account has disappeared." -- My Life in Fandom - Deb Walsh's Zines - Planned Titles That Didn't Happen, Archived version)

  • Day Code (Wiseguy, 1990 a one shot, Almond Press, "This one-shot Wisely zine is now accepting submissions of stories, art and poetry covering Vinnie, Frank, Uncle Mike and the characters they've met along the way. No slash, but adult themes are okay as long as they are not explicit. (This will be a No Age Statement Required zine.)

  • Days of Future Past (1991, Total Recall, "This new all-fiction zine plans to fill-in-the-blanks and expand upon, the Earth/Mars 2086 universe. Seeking serious speculation on Cohaagen/Hauser/Kuato origins, establishment of Martian society and the Agency's subsequent control over it, what were the first signs of rebellion and what happens now that the rebels have won? Or was it all a dream? A tough film demands a tough zine, and this one is rates PG-R and beyond (please see Days of Future Past-Blue for adult oriented submissions), writers; please submit a 1-3 page synopsis; artists please send sample. If you've always wanted to let your imagination run wild, now is the time. Submissions open thru 2/15/91 for 5/91 print date." Pop Stand)
  • Days of Future Past - Blue (1991, Total Recall, ""It should also be said that, despite the tantalizing possibilities inherent in the Venusville gimmick, this is a sexually conservative movie. I mean, a whorehouse on Mars - what an idea to waste! In the same vein, the movie shrinks from pursuing an even more interesting subtext. There's just the faintest suggestion in Quaid and Cohaagen's scenes together that they could have been lovers in Quaid's former life. Bringing that to the foreground would certainly have given their climatic face-off more pizzazz, and it probably wouldn't even have disturbed the audience much..." Planned as a companion piece to DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, submissions based on any creatively induced tangents sparked by the above are enthusiastically encouraged. This will be an adult fiction-only zine. Writers; please submit a 1-3 page synopsis; artist send sample." Pop Stand)

Send me your stories, your poetry, your artwork, and help me put together the first (so far as I know) zine dedicated to the dramatic shows of the daytime! No slash please.")

However, we are in the semifinal stage (typing up) of production.

  • Dead Reckoning (1995, Quantum Leap, gen, CJR Press, "In this post Mirror Image novel, Sam and Al find themselves together on a foundering vessel at sea. Battling the weather, faulty equipment, and a mysterious passenger, our heroes eventually must confront the ultimate challenge.")

They kept reappearing, remember? Well he's finally gotten his shit together and if the dummies that I've seen are any indication we may have another INTERPHASE on our hands, I not just saying this because I happen to have illustrated a story in it or because I happen to be the one that painted its gorgeous full-color cover (I surprise myself sometimes, you know?), I'm saying it because I sincerely think that it's true, John is another one of these very talented people who have been, for the most part, hiding in the closet. I'm glad more of them are coming out! It's going to have fiction by Paula Smith and Leslie Fish's latest wild and looooooooong tale and much more. There should be a flyer enclosed for Deneva, but in case you don't get one here's the address and I urge to send an SASE, If you miss it, you have only your self to blame!" -- Some April 1979 comments by Theresa Holmes in The Oracle Speaks: "We hope to have this one out by 2-Con. Keep fingers crossed because I've got a lot of artwork to do for the first part (of two) of Leslie's The Elf-King's Daughter. I'm plugging away, but sixteen illos? All to be reduced? Ouch.

  • The Dome Cycle Collected (1996, Blake's 7, slash, "Oblique is currently putting together a small volume featuring all parts of The Dome Cycle by M.Fae Glasgow, edited into a single novel.

  • Doom 'n Gloom Affair (1994, slash, Man from U.N.C.L.E., Samizdat Press, anthology. "There's long been an unwritten rule in UNCLE fan fiction: do anything you like to Napoleon and Illya in a hurt/comfort story, but don't make it permanent. Don't kill, maim, or mutilate them, always let them recover. As usual DPF/Samizdat took a long look at this rule and chucked out the window. Stomped it into the floor. Smashed it. Crushed it. Left it to whimper and bleed copious gallons of blood, gore guilt, and general agony all over the sidewalk in front of a certain tailor shop in the Lower Forties. "The Doom'N'Gloom Affair is devoted to the h/c that was too heavy to be published anywhere else. If you're looking for the ultimate in tear-jerking, heart-twisting, angst-ridden Napoleon and Illya stories, THIS IS IT!. The Doom 'N' Gloom Affair will be bound in an appropriately depressing black cover, attached to a which will be a black bookmark ribbon, a bandage and real package of tissues (which we suppose says just about everything we need to say about this zine.) Our line-up so far includes Eros (author of City of Byzantium, a 1989 Fan Q Nominee: Best Novella) and who has promised a wonderful h/c story and a hilarious satire; Debra Hicks (author of Two Hawks, Dancing, 1989 Fan Q Nominee: Best Short Story); Alexi Tesla (author of False Images and Ghost Writers in the Wind, 1989 Fan Q Nominee: Best Short Story), and others. Expected size is 300 pages. (Maybe we'd better make that two packets of tissues, hmmm?) Absolutely no limits will be placed on authors or artists concerning story content or graphic quality of art, except -- not kitty torture. If you've always wanted to write that really super "Let's trash Illya or Napoleon" story, now's your chance!"))

  • Dreamplane (Earth 2, "Earth 2 remains one of my favorite fandoms for fan fiction, and all of it originated on the net. In fact, my novella Context was written entirely for posting - a first for me. I've toyed off and on over the years with doing an Earth 2 zine, and Dreamplane has always been my preferred name for it. But in addition to dropping out of fandom before I could get it off the ground, I also have not yet written the sequent to Context. Ideally, I'd like the zine to be built around Context and its sequel, so I guess until it's written, there will be no Dreamplane." -- My Life in Fandom - Deb Walsh's Zines - Planned Titles That Didn't Happen, Archived version)

PROS, HERE COMES THE BRIDES (Joshua/Aaron), and MFUs stories already promised. ")
  • Dusty Studs (Young Rider, 1991, "The zine that got started because the title was too damn good to waste, Is there anyone else out there who's addicted to a western character development, specifically THE YOUNG RIDERS? If so, we'd love to hear from you. There are a zillion good plot lines that the show hasn't gotten around to. and we're looking for a few of them! Oh, yes. Let us emphasize! NO SLASH! (Yes, we know there are half a dozen tasty young men in that bunkhouse, but really...) So, if you're interested in writing, drawing, kibbitzing on just how tasty the bunkhouse IS, or providing support, do drop us a line!
