Reclassified Affairs 1 was published in 1998. It has a front cover by Suzan Lovett, one piece of interior art by Jan Davies, some screenshots, and some clip art.

From the editorial:
Welcome. Reclassified Affairs has been planned on a reprint zine, consisting solely of U.N.C.L.E. slash stories that were originally published in multi-media zines. It was suggested to me by Jan Davies as something that would be neat to do, and as most of my friends know, I am extremely susceptible to suggestion and easily talked into things. And after thinking it over, I decided it made sense. A lot of U.N.C.L.E fans don't buy mixed media zines, and so miss out on these delightful stories. So, here I am now with the first issue. There will be at least one more, most likely next spring. I would like to thank the authors who kindly gave me permission to reprint their stories. I hope this zine does their work justice. I would also like to thank Suzan Lovett for the contribution of her art which was originally used in Fruit Cocktail, herein used for my cover, and to Jan Davies for her interior art.
