From "Some Words About Filk-Songs": "Part of the fun of being a Fan is getting into things like "filk-songs". Several years ago, someone printed up a song-sheet with the words to some of these insane parodies and through an inspired slip of the typewriter came up with filk-songs instead of folk-songs. The name has come to mean parodies or even original songs on a Star Trek or Science Fiction topic... There are talented people like [April Valentine] and Carolyn Venino and Leslie Fish who can make up their own tunes. I tend to borrow mine, from all sorts of likely and unlikely places. This makes for copywrite difficulties, which is one reason I have not recorded any of these songs. It is also why I have not included the music for any of them. I have given you the source and the guitar chords. You'll just have to take it from there yourselves. People ask me how I write a filk-song. I usually pick my music first, and I try to select the music to the character or theme. Then I go with the original rhyme scheme — and I play with the words until I get them to fit what I want to S8y. Most of the time it comes out funny -- with one or two exceptions. The artists who illustrated these songs did so under extreme pressure, since I decided to get this book ready at almost the eleventh hour. I thank everyone of them for getting the art to me under the gun, as it were."
