Sanctuary is a het Beauty and the Beast anthology. It was edited by Linda S. Barth, Barbara Hill, Peg McNabb & Terrie Milliman, members of CABB (Classic Alliance of Beauty and the Beast).

The first three issues were sold by subscription and published in the Fall and Spring of each year. In issue #4, the editor said the zine would no longer be subscription and would be published once a year.

From a flyer in Of Love and Hope #4:

CABB, the Classic Alliance of Beauty and the Beast, is proud to announce that subscriptions are now available for an exciting, new, magazine-format B&B zine called "Sanctuary." Designed and edited by CABB's founders -- Linda S. Barth, Peg McNabb, Terrie Milliman, and Teri Peppe -- "Sanctuary" will offer stories (3 or more per issue), art, poetry, feature articles, celebrity interviews, games, craft activities, zine info (new publications and Golden Oldies), movie and theatre reviews, ads, humor, and more! Each issue will average 65-70 pages, and, as with all publications issued under the CABB banner, "Sanctuary" will feature Classic material exclusively.

"Sanctuary" will be published twice yearly, in October and April, with the inaugural issue being mailed to subscribers in time for Samhain, a date of special significance to B&B fans! We're very pleased that "Sanctuary" will present new material by several of the leading writers and artists in Classic fandom. The October '96 issue includes Rosemarie Hauer, Teri Milliman, Edith Crowe, Peg McNabb, Jessie Gurner, Teri Peppe, and Linda S. Barth; future issues will feature many addtional writers and artists from among our very talented fan community.

Many issues will have a special theme, with most -- but not all -- material focusing on the chosen topic. For the first "Sanctuary," the theme will be "Masques," that wondrous time "when the walls between the worlds grow thin." Within its pages you'll find further stories of Vincent and Catherine as they experience the magical beauty of that special night; a presentation of the legends and traditions of Samhain; a fascinating exploration of the concept of "soulmates"; a celebrity interview with Caitlin O'Heaney, B&B's Brigit O'Donnell; beautiful art; and much more.

Are you interested in exploring and enjoying the newest Classic publication in B&B fandom? If so, then please join us in "Sanctuary"!

Yearly subscriptions to "Sanctuary" will consist of two issues (including postage) at the following rates:

$20 for current CABB members.

$23 for non-members.

From the editor:

As many of you know, for several years “Sanctuary” has been the literary zine written and illustrated by several members of CABB. During that time, we’ve been pleased to bring you fiction, feature articles, interviews, art, poetry, movie and theatre reviews, humor, games, and crafts activities, all based on Classic themes from the beloved show “Beauty and the Beast.” At one time, “Sanctuary” was published twice yearly, but with the demands and responsibilities of life taking their toll on many of the zine’s principal writers, unfortunately we have found it necessary to cease publication on a regular basis. In order to avoid disappointing all the wonderful CABB members and others who have been so enthusiastic and supportive of our efforts, we promise not only to continue but to expand our publishing efforts online. Please check our website and keep in touch with us so that if and when another issue of “Sanctuary” is ever published, we’ll be able to let you know all the details. One of our favorite writers, Edith Crowe, has a very long story that she anticipates completing in time for next year’s con in LA, so there’s always hope...

  • The Walls Grew Thin, part three, story by Teri Pepe (This includes extensive author's notes. Pepe also writes that "I must acknowledge Sue Glasgow and her zine When the Phoenix Sings. There is a scene in part two blatantly taken from (and expanded upon, albeit with a twist) Sue's story. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and that certainly was my intent writing it. I always wanted more of that scene and I suppose this is my way of getting it. Some very precious moments of my BATB imagery come from Sue's work, and many other fanfic authors -- Linda Barth, Lynette Combs, Pamela Garrett and Diane Davis, to name a few.") (20)
