September 1987 announcement

Snitch is an Starsky and Hutch adzine.

It was bi-monthly, and then quarterly.

There was an announcement for it in The Who Do We Trust Times #8 which said it was to appear at Zebra Con 1987 and would contain "zine listings, want ads, and other information for SH fans."

"Official" circulation in 1987 was ninety fans, though each of those issues was probably read and used by more than one person.

When Rogers took over publication, it appears they started numbering over again at "1" and renamed the zine "Snitch... The Adventure Continues."

  • a fan is raffling off a quilt: "RAFFLE: A STAR-SKY QUILT is the raffle prize on offer to SH fans. (72" X 45") Impossible here to supply a colour print, but you should imagine indigo blue (what else?) as the background, and a variety of fabrics including, naturally, pliant denim and lustrous velvet...in many shades of blue from palest Nordic to deepest midnight, highlighted in silver and in gold. (You could say blond there.) The design features starts and roses - no need to explain their relevance. Lucky number tickets cost one dollar, or 65 pence, for two. Please - no overseas cheques, but stamps, IRCs, or dollar bills are fine. Tickets available from Tabby Davis [address in England redacted]. Winner's mailing costs will be paid - no extra for those. ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE PAF FUND."

Snitch... The Adventure Continues

From Frienz #18 (April/May 1992), a fan in England tells other fans:
Monday, 6th April — memorable date — brought an 8a.m. telephone call from Illinois when Mary told me that SNITCH was on its way and should be with us in time for the SH Fanday in London on the 11th (coinciding with another SH event in Baltimore). It's great to have this very helpful publication restored; I'm really glad that Mary can take over what Carol and Merle started for us — THANK YOU to all three of them.
