About

From the publisher's ad in Southern Enclave #17:
A fanzine with all sorts of stories about Han Solo. From his youth to his exciting and adventurous life before that meeting in the Mos Eisley spaceport, through the struggles of the Rebellion and his life with Luke and Leia afterwards. All stories and shorts written by Lynda Vandiver and Joyce Devine. Cover by Barbara Frances-Simon.
From the zine itself:

Welcome to the pages of "SOLO", This zine is a collection of things written since we entered fandom in 1982. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them. Don't look too closely, errors are there. Our aim was fun and enjoyment, not perfection.

Thank you for your interest in "SOLO". We'd appreciate your comments.

A special "THANK YOU" to Barbara Francis Simon for the beautiful artwork she did Exclusively for "SOLO".

DEDICATION: To the most exciting, intriguing, adventurous and mischevious [sic] character ever created in fiction: Han Solo.
