Scoundrel is a Star Wars no-frills letterzine that was published shortly after the third film of the original trilogy was released. The title is a reference to the Han/Leia kiss scene in The Empire Strikes Back; Leia calls Han a scoundrel, and Han says she likes it.

From an ad: "A letterzine devoted to the SW saga. Features: Question Forum, Articles, Essays, Reviews, LoC's, Zine Listings and a Classified Section, plus a Consumer Corner. Published quarterly." [1]

One fan writes in the third issue: "First the world was created. Then George gave us a saga. Now you have given us Scoundrel to help figure out that saga. Chaos. Complete chaos. I love it. Keep up the good work."

Sections of the letterzine have been included on Fanlore with the publisher's permission.
