Reactions and Reviews

This is a highly useful reference work for anyone involved in Star Wars fandom, and represents a truly mind-boggling amoung of labor. The editor lists three pages of libraries and other reference sources with the help of which she tracked down a vast number of reviews, articles, recordings, and other mentions of the films and characters. Most of the entries are from mundane publications, and many are carefully cross-referenced under theme or subject as well as type of article, but there is also a fairly comprehensive listing of fanzines (no reviews or descriptions) . Although this is simply an unassuming computer printout, and has no pretense of beauty or stylish presentation, it accomplishes what it sets out to do--give the reader a thorough overview of the available commentary on Star Wars. It is an indispensable aid to anyone trying to find a particular reference or a particular kind of commentary on the movies, and belongs in every fan's library. The editor provides periodic updates of information, and is currently working on a comprehensive listing of fanzine contents to be released in the near future. I recommend this zine highly. [1]
