(All MacGyver, all the time!) Don't feel you have to include clever MacGyverisms in your story. We want character-driven plots just as much. How is Pete adjusting after watching Mac and his newly-acquired son ride off into the sunset? And how is he handling his encroaching blindness? Is Jack Dalton still out there somewhere, ready to cajole Mac into another can't-miss, get-rich-quick scheme? Let me hear from you Mac fans!")
  • The Mackinac Island Affair, (Man from UNCLE, 1993, Loose Cannon Press, "Written by Alesia Tom, Greg Crowe and Aloma Pedersen. Artist tba. Mid-March 1968: The Vietnam War is escalating, Bobby Kennedy's running for president, and at the resort island of Mackinac Island, Michigan, a recuperating UNCLE agent has gone into a mysterious frenzy, vandalizing the rooming house where he was staying and seriously injuring the owners before throwing himself out the window to his death. Napoleon and Illya are sent to Mackinac Island to find out why. Latest guess is a summer '94 release depending on when artwork is ready.")
  • Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know (1997, multimedia, Bound and Leather Press, slash, het, gen, "This 'zine will be a celebration of the most interesting character in fiction: The Villain," see flyer image above for a grumpy, pointed submission request)
  • Il Mago (1994, slash, Man from U.N.C.L.E., Samizdat Press, novel by Alexis Tesla. "Two children, born thousands of miles apart, each to a life the other could not imagine. From the instant they enter the world, one born in comfort on fine linen sheets, the other desperately ripped from his dying mother's belly. One born to a family who holds him as the brightest jewel in their ancient lineage; the other a hated intruder to the gypsy caravan forced to take him in. Two children, each with backgrounds and upbringings as disparate as any could be. Two children...each with an identical gift. The Sicilians call such a one Il Mago. The Russians have a different term: Strahsnah Ryeebyonkah — The Terrible Children. But both whisper the same legends at night, of the final conflict between good and evil, of one who will come to fight the battle with all the magic he possesses...and who will change the world forever.")

  • Mind's Eye (1993, Star Wars, " I know, I know, another fanzine right? Just what the world needs, right? Wrong. Just what I need. Maybe you haven't noticed but it seems like every zine out today is about "War of the Worlds" or "Quantum Leap". I'm sure there are a few, but I do not know of any real Star Wars zines, and Star Wars was the foundation for most popular science fiction movies or television. In fact, before Star Wars, science fiction was widly [sic] considered the toe jam of movies and television. Well, this zine is for myself and those of you who haven't forgotten the greatest sci-fi story ever told. Maybe you've all read the Star Wars continuation series by Timothy Zahn. Maybe you all liked it, I did not. Why? Because the author did not KNOW the characters. Sound silly? What's silly is that dialog. Who ever talked that way? I don't know. My opinion of the books are my own, you may not feel the same way, fine. I am not looking for debate. Just good Star Wars stories. Which brings me to Just what I want to see when I say "good Star Wars" stories. A few things, really. 1. Nothing too campy. Sci-Fi is still taking a lot of unfair swipes from people who think we all run around saying, "Live long and prosper" and shooting flair guns at people at conventions (that really happens). 2. NO CROSSOVERS. Crossover stories can be good fun, but I don't think a story about Sam "leaping" into the body of Darth Vader would be too happening. 3. Humor. Star Wars has a lot of dramatic elements to it, but there was always humor. O.K. So what does this all mean? I'll read anything, but I won't print everything. As a matter of fact, I'll even read and print good Star Trek stories, preferably "Next Generation". But this is NOT a multi-media zine. Star Wars and maybe something else every now and then, but only if it's good. Before I run out of room on this disk I would also like to ask for artwork. I will draw for now because I like to, but sooner or later I will need other contributions. I should also point out that this will, for the most part, be an edit-free zine. Obviously spelling will be checked, but I do not believe in changing stories. Back to the artwork. Please send originals. I will endeavor to take care of them and send them back unharmed.... - Jon Cephas" see images above)
