Storms is a gen, with occasional slash multimedia fanzine focused on female characters.

From a Submission Request

"A celebration of women in fandom and fannish creation. Will include articles, stories, speculation, opinion, anger, and joy... the future is female -- the future is NOW."[1]

flyer printed in Starwings #1


  • "There is an incongruity in media fandom. Although the majority of fandom is female, a larger majority of its literary and artistic endeavors are about men. Surely the women in fandom's universes are equally worthy of high quality creativity? Storms is a fannish feminist excursion into the women of ST, SW and other media... from interested feminists." [2]
  • Editor Charlene Terry had "advertised this as a feminist 'media' fanzine, and it had a large built-in readership at the start, since many fans were self-described feminists." [3]
  • "This is a challenge to fandom: For months now, there have been fannish discussion about feminism in fanlit -- or, rather, about the absence of feminism in fanlit. This absence makes no sense, as SW/ST media fandom is known to have a majority of women members. Although men of fannish media are worthy of literacy and creative endeavors, I believe that now is the time, long overdue, for fannish writers to move past this male-identification into the realm of FEMALE-identification. My challenge: for the women of media to begin writing and creating women of Star Wars, Star Trek, and media. As a forum for this material, I have launched Storms, a fannish feminist excursion into the women of fandom and fannish creation. I need ideas, feedback, constructive advice and support from interested feminists." [4]

From the editorial: "Storms -- what a turbulent image that creates! Nature's fury unleashed. Howling winds, frenzied waves, pelting rain that soon turns to razor-sharp sleet.... Storms -- This is the name of a women's zine? On second thought, I like it. Being female in today's society has been known to evoke some rather 'stormy' thoughts and feelings. It's about time the women of fandom got together -- sharing, questioning, enlightening, exploring. Some do it best by writing articles or letters, others by artwork or fan fiction. Storms is our vehicle. Let's take full advantage of it."

Reactions and Reviews: Issue 1

See reactions and reviews for New Year.
A feminist mediazine" by Charlie Terry... [it] has a different perspective than any other fanzine I've ever seen so far. There are only two pieces of fiction: "New Year" by Paula Smith (S&H) and a Trek story about T'Pring that paints her as a victim of her culture, even more than Spock was. "New Year" is about a romance that goes rather badly for Hutch. It is written in an episodic style that leaves much for the reader to deduce on her own, and I found myself wishing for more detail on the development of the relationship; the breakup is painfully clear. It's a story worth reading, and together with some of the articles make the zine well worth its $2.50 cover price... Not recommended for for anyone who has a strong feeling against sexual variation. Recommended for anyone with an open mind. [5]
Specialty zines are common in fandom, and becoming more so as fandom ranks expand with the addition of new interest groups. These zines tend to bloom and fade in relative obscurity, as infozine listings and even word of mouth recommendations generally don't seduce fans with parting zine dollars for something they are marginally interested in, at best. 'Storms,' however, has a format which Tigriffin believes will offset the possible disadvantage of specialization. Its chosen subject, feminism, is of interest to a good portion of fandom, and the editor is open to submissions on any aspect of media SF, as see from a feminist prospective. The quality of the first issue is gratifyingly high, something of a rarity in first-time fanzines. 'Storms' has also avoided the hint of condescension toward those not given to militancy that has unfortunately caused many women to equate feminism with Communist plots, rioting, and life of breakfast without orange juice. Tigriffin recommends this zine, especially to fans on the borderline who 'aren't feminists... but.'. 'Storms' shows feminism being lived instead of only fantasized, discussed rather than preached from a soap-box. Whether you agree with all the pieces or not, you will at least not be bored. This issue contains 'Klee-Fan': this story is unusual on two counts. It is told in the second person, which is possibly the most difficult viewpoint to master, but handled admirably here. It is also a sensitive portrayal of T'Pring as one of the victims of the situation presented in 'Amok Time,' rather than a criminally selfish manipulator. The writer ties T'Pring's experiences to happenings 20th century Terran women will recognize and identify with, but the knows are so fine as to be invisible unless you are deliberately studying only a story's construction. A superior piece of fan fiction. Best of zine award. 'Princess Leia: An Analysis': a list of Leia's character tags and an appeal for more stories about her. The authors point out that Leia has not been given the treatment and attention in fan fiction that she deserves, a point that is well-taken, but this superficial coverage of her appearance and documented behavior is not enough to inspire expansion of her role by fan writers who have been shelving her in favor of male pulchritude. 'Some Attitudes Towards Marriage in Fan Fiction': very good, wide scope, an examination of how fan writers (both individually and generally) have handled the concept of marriage. It could even serve as a useful guide for readers in search of romantic viewpoints that match their own. 'New Year': eleven episodes between Hutch and a woman he comes to love make up a well-crafted story on the difficulty of accepting new realizations while existing in a comfortable and traditional environment. 'The K/S Concept: A Feminist Perspective': this article points out the ideological similarities between feminists and Kirk/Spock interactions in their personal fantasies. To give her credit, the author attempts it, but the effort comes across as her personal justification, rather than an unslanted statement of facts as presented at the article's beginning. She proceeds to explain her attraction to K/S literature by relating personal history. Interesting, but out of place in a factual piece. The article would have been better if one format, either personal opinion or unbiased reporting of evidence, had been chosen. Still, it was enlightening. Tigriffin hopes 'Storms' will continue to recieve and print good quality articles as well as fiction, since it is one of the few zines inclined to feature this type of food for thought. Overall content: very good to excellent. Art: well-used, high-quality. Repro: excellent. Value: buying this zine is money well spent. [6]
'Storms' announced itself loudly as the First Feminist Fanzine; when in the planning stages, its inception seems somehow to have been shouted from the rooftops. Well, 'a fannish feminist celebration of women in fandom and fannish creation' has finally appeared, and I feel it necessary to preface my remarks on it with a paraphrase of those of its editor: This, too, is a dirty job, but somebody's got to do it. STORMS, at $3.75 first class (or, I suppose, $2.50 in person—the cover says "Cover Price - $2.50," which I presume includes the insides and staples), is 48 pages long, leaving one with a first impression that on the fannish scene, women don't have an awful lot to celebrate. (After reading the contents you'll wonder why we haven't been walking around in sack cloth and ashes. You will also realize that a small zine can be a blessing in disguise.) The art is uninspired, except for the cover, which seems disturbingly and directly inspired by the cover of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Stormqueen!; there is one story that should be reprinted somewhere since it's far too good to meet an untimely death in a dark alley (or 'celebration', if you prefer); and a—thankfully small— collection of mishmosh: another short piece of fiction, one poem, three articles and the editorial. Let's start with the good news. (Don't blink.) "Klee-Fah!", by Quism, is a beautiful story. It is complete, moving, and the only piece of merit in the zine. A retelling of the Spock/T'Pring/Stonn story from T'Pring's point of view, it is a mirror reflecting the pain of a woman in a male-do-dominated society, as she discovers the little, limited and unpalatable spaces her world conspires to push her into, and her courage to live a life of her own making. Now for the rest. The other story is a Starsky and Hutch outline by Paula Smith (is a story feminist because it's got women characters?) in which Hutch seems to have instantly and selectively turned into a moron, allowing him to bumble along for the length of the piece, blissfully unaware of what the reader has realized almost from the start. While some may consider this story insulting to women, I consider it insulting to readers. There is an article on the trivialization of Princess Leia in SWars fan fiction, by Linda Stoops, which I won't comment on beyond the obvious: the "sad dearth of interest" isn't solely on Leia's shoulder's—one look at STORMS and one can see it's happening to women all over. Deloris Booker has an article entitled "Some Attitudes Towards Marriage in ST Fan Fiction", an aptly nebulous appellation, which seems to include capriciously chosen representative stories and couples, with little thought as to how these reflect the genre as a whole, while any sign of a mature relationship (such as yours, mine and Jean Lorrah's favorite, Sarek and Amanda) have been totally ignored. The synopses of zine marriages are preceded and followed by some general claptrap about marriages, past and future, with no real cultural, social or historical point of view, and equally little direction. Judith Gran has an article regarding K/S and feminism, views she sees as capable of mutual coexistence as each affirms the humanness of all and the choices of any of us. Though nothing new, it is well-structured and craftswomanly written. The editor's comments after this piece try, in part, to explain the erotic fascination K/S seems to hold over some if not all of us Dirty Old Broads. This to me has always seemed like explaining the unexplainable. Instead of being aroused by the loving, caring nature of the relationship, which, Ms. Terry points out, is different from the sweat/pain of gay porn (except in the case of Gayle F's work, where it's not), why not just leave it to all that can really be said: we're aroused because the writer wanted it that way. K/S works because it's written by people who know (viscerally, so to speak) whether it's working or not. Oddly enough, this is one zine where the editor has not chosen to include any of her own work ... beyond the editorial, the aforementioned comments, and some zine recommendations among the ads. This may be a good thing, because the editorial set the tone for the disappointment that was to come. While the following reference is decidedly antifeminist, many of us are old enough to remember the wildly successful Clairol ad campaign pegged on "Is it true blondes have more fun?" And most of us will remember the quiet little disclaimer in all the ads: "Chances are she would have gotten that young man anyhow.... But you'll never convince her of that." Reading the editorial of STORMS—the most bizarre piece in the zine--brought that ad back to me in glorious black and white. One of the reasons the editor embarked upon this zine, she tells us, is because she had 'the feminist background and contacts' (which sounds like the old 'I'm more fill-in-the-blank than you are' game). She tells us she has been through a growth process since the inception of STORMS, the result of which is that she has lost first-stage-feminist rage. Now I would have thought, with all her contacts and background, Sisterhood being what it is in my bend of the creek, that someone, somewhere along the way, would have told the editor, or she might have noticed it herself, that anyone who is determined to no longer allow herself to be oppressed loses the seething rage that accompanies the realization of the extent of one's oppression. The rage is universal, it's eventual diminuition certain. Well, apparently no one did tell her, because she feels the need to tell us, folks, right there in black and white in the editorial, that she lost her rage through the love of one good man. Chances are she would have lost her rage anyway.... So, for those of you with a twisted sense of humor, there's one good laugh in STORMS: the publisher of 'the first feminist zine' should have known that what's been done to women throughout the centuries in the name of the love of one good man is the reason that history goes on and herstory has been lost forever. Offering her happiness to us as responsible for her metamorphosis goes a long way toward explaining the limited quality of all that follows, and a zine, the idea of which had so much to offer, which so many people were so predisposed to like, winds up being just another mediocre evening's read. [7]

The editor of Storms blasts the previous review written by T'Yenta in this personal statement:

I don't respond to reviews of my own fanzine; I believe that honest differences of opinions and perspective are valuable in fannish interaction. I do, however, take umbrage at the recent 'review' of my zine by you, T'Yenta -- because you did not review my fanzine, you reviewed my editorial. Who are you, T'Yenta? What injustice, real or imaginary, have I committed upon you to make you hate me and that editorial so much? If you honestly disliked Storms, I can appreciate that, as I stated upfront and from the beginning that this zine is not for everyone. But don't tell me in your infinite feminist wisdom (and own unresolved feminist rage) that you are more (fill in the blank) than I am. In your attack of my editorial and principles, you left out my basic editorial statement -- that those who seriously dislike "Storms" and feel that the job could have been better done by someone else, should, instead of grousing, do something constructive -- like do it herself. It's a whole lot easier to write reviews blasting the editor than it is to stick out your own neck and try. I find it significant that a person who is afraid, for whatever reason, to use her real name should also see fit to bitch rather than build. [8]

The editor of Storm's husband writes in a personal statement as well:

T'yenta: Charlie Terry has not lost her rage. She's still angry, still fighting, still working towards the idea of choice for everyone. Her lessening of intensity has nothing to do with her finding 'one good man.' Despite that fact that I am that 'one good man,' I see the fire that burns in her every day... T'Yenta, you are wrong. Charlie may have lost the outspoken 'hate men' attitude, but she has molded her rage and her anger into a working, acting state of mind, working with good men, and good women. I resent the implication that Charlie has lost anything over her love for me. That goes against everything our relationship stands for. ... Charlie Terry has changed, not died. She has grown, not withered... Who are you to make such sweeping conclusions over a two-page editorial? You have jumped before you looked. Review yourself, before you review another zine. [9]

Storms 2 was published in May 1982 and is 90 pages long.

From Boldly Writing:

The fanzine featured a large letters section. One of the two Star Wars entries detailed how women were far more prominent in Star Wars fanzine stories—even including some female Jedi Knights—than they had been in the Star Wars movies. The lone Trek entry of the fanzine was "Bridges are for Burning," by Sharon Giacomo, which featured a prominent Klingon woman (predating Valkris, Azetbur, and K'Ehleyr by many years). [10]

Reactions and Reviews: Issue 2

Storms is not primarily a SWars zine, but is instead a "feminist-oriented" zine willing to accept stories and articles drawn from any source. Issue one featured a controversial Starsky and Hutch story by Paula Smith, an article about Princess Leia by Linda Stoops, an exploration of the attractions of K/S stories by Judith Gran, and other items. This second issue continues the tradition established by the first. Storms us with a story about Princess Leia by Chris Callahan, an article about the "female hero" by Pat Nussman, a Uhura story by Linda M. Simpson, an article about the women in SWars fan-fiction by Chris Callahan, an article on "marysue" in media fan-lit by Linda Stoops, an article on "women's music" by Charlie Terry-Textor, and a Trek story by Sharon Giacomo featuring a female Klingon commander. There is also much feminist-oriented poetry and artwork in this issue. Storms may be feminist-oriented, but what I particularly like about it is that it is not strident. Charlie Terry-Textor states the case well in her editorial. Storms emphasizes "woman's proper place--wherever she wants to be." (Emphasis mine.) Because Storms does not preach, because it does not indulge in diatribes and in hate-mongering, I prefer to think of it as a "humanist-oriented" fanzine, rather than a "feminist-oriented" one. And therein lies its charm--and its strength. There is a place in fandom for zines such as Storms: zines in which ethical questions can be discussed, zines in which controversial stories can be aired, zines in whlch polls can be taken and opinions solicited, zines in which articles and essays (of varying degrees of depth and meaning) can be presented. It is true that not all of Storms will be of interest to SW fans, however, most fan do not appear to be dedicated only to the Lucas universe. In the beginning there was SF fandom. Then there appeared Star Trek fandom, and opinion was divided: should this upstart 'fandom' be accepted or not? That question never was universally answered, when along came Star Wars. A new fandom sprang up, one that laid the groundwork for what is now known as "media fandom". Storms appeals to this broad-based fandom, and has the added attraction of presenting stories, poetry, and articles which relate to female issues. Even so, there are several items in Storms which will be of primary interest to SWfans. "Best Laid Plans" by Chris Callahan, concerns the role of the Princess Leia Organa in the acquisition of the Death Star tapes. It is competently written, and the character' of Leia is rather well-handled. It is an honest attempt by the author to present a rounded portrait of the princess as opposed to the stereotypical bitch who appears in so much fan writing. The story itself, unfortunately, lacks depth and has no bite. It is, basically, simply the prelude to the adventures that began in A New Hope. Also, the story is too short to truly explore Leia's character. I like that Callahan has done thus far, and would enjoy seeing her take this Leia and write an entire adventure--a new adventure-- around her. There are entirely too few stories out that give good pictures of the Princess Leia Organa. "The Female Hero", by Pat Nussman, is subtitled "Personal Reflections on the Appeal of Leia Organa". Nussman writes an interesting and entertaining essay in which she traces some of the common elements she finds in her favorite myths and fairy-tales and in Star Wars. Han Solo as the Frog Prince? Perhaps. But as Nussman points out, even more important is the quest of identity that Leia Organa, the female hero, is undertaking--and that we, through identification and empathy, can take with her. In a second article, Chris Callahan points out that A New Hope was considered by many to be "blatantly sexist" (I don't agree. Of the three main "heroes", one is a female. That's better odds than we get in most fiction and films!), but that fanfic came along shortly after the movie, and suddenly "the SWars universe acquired a much more balanced population ... along with a relatively unquestioned assumption that in this highly advanced galactic civilization women and men are more or less equal legally and socially." Callahan then proceeds to give an overview of some of the "Visible Women" in SW fan-fiction. She gives as her criteria the following: 1) the character's existence as an individual who could be featured in her own story without any reference to Luke or Han; 2) the character's presence in the story ... being justifiable on grounds other than romantic interest and/or 'local color'; 3) the avoidance of stereotyping of personality and/or role. Callahan studies Jedi, Alliance members, and "independents". I do not alwaysagree with her choices (neIther Ariel Solo, Kaili Lars, nor Lyann Skywalker strikes me as strong--nor even as particularly believable or competent), nor with her basic premise that sexual equality is "unquestioned" in fan-fiction, but I think that she has done a good job in presenting a thoughtful and interesting introduction to the subject of women in Star Wars fandom. I would be interested in seeing more development of this theme, both in adding a study of some of the characters introduced In fan-fiction since the inception of this issue of Storms and in studying some of the characters who are in categories not covered by Callahan (what of the Imperials? Surely Susan Matthews's Jennet Ap Rhiannon is as interesting a person as Naom Pre?) . "Mary Sue Just Ain't What She Used to Be" by Linda Stoops, introduces us to the most maligned of created characters, the Sue. As Stoops points out, SW fan-fic has been guilty of creating more than its share of new variations on an old mistake. Unfortunately, this article at several points threatens to get away from Stoops; it is perhaps the single most "preachy" article in Storms , and I found it a bit disconcerting to find "Mary Sue" tied to the growth of Christianity and the destruction of the Mother-religion on one hand, and the power of the "Moral Majority" on the other--or maybe it's the same hand? Stoops' point could have been made with less bitterness and with less condescension, and an outline of what she wanted to say would have kept her from straying so much from the point. Also, her political/religious material should have been saved for a more meaningful, deeper essay rather than wasted here almost as a throw-away. With the exception of some cartoons of questionable taste, that is the total of the SW material in this issue. Artwork is unmemorable, layout and paste-up in need of improvement, and reproduction poor in places. The non- SW work is interesting and worth reading. General recommendation? For a general media fan or for the SW fan willing to dip into other interests, the zine is recommended. You will find thought-provoking material here that will encourage you to develop new ways of looking at "female issues" If all you are interested in are SW stories and articles, proceed with caution. Although the SW items are competent and interesting, you may not consider them sufficient inducement to purchase the whole zine. [11]
STORMS, the fanzine for feminist media fans, has one Star Trek story in it. "Bridges are for Building" by Sharon Giacomo is part two of a continuing story set in an alternate universe, though it can be read independently. The "New Federation" includes the old Federation, plus Romulans and Klingons. The current outside conflict is with the Kzinti; there are internal conflicts as the new alliance adjusts. The story includes Admiral Kirk for reference—a nice touch—but the story's main character is Captain Secanth, a woman of Klingon ancestry who commands a New Federation ship. Secanth is a believable character, and is neither the superwoman or the Mary Sue stereotype. She has al] the problems one would expect a starship captain to have, and handles them with varying degrees of success, as one would expect in reality. [12]

table of contents

Storms 3 was published in 1985 and is 72 pages long.

From a submission request in Universal Translator #17 in 1983: "'Storms' is revising its format for the third issue of the fannish feminist celebration to all-Trek and/or 'mainstream' feminist/lesbian thought... I'd like to return to the fire of the first issue, with more controversial themes."

With issue #3, Charlene Terry "turned over the production of ....Storms, to Linda Stoops of Columbus, Ohio... There was one major Star Trek story and one major Star Wars story, plus a number of smaller entries. Despite the great enthusiasm for this fanzine among its readers, this was the last issue." [13]

Reactions and Reviews: Issue 3

While Charlie Terry-Textor takes a leave of absence, she has turned over the editorship of STORMS to Linda Stoops for an issue or two. STORMS is still a feminist-oriented fanzine for media fans, and the contents include a puzzle, cartoons, poetry, and two stories, which make up the bulk of the zine. "Bridges are for Building," by Sharon Giacomo, is part two of a story set in a ST alternate universe. The 'New Federation' includes the old Federation, Romulans, and Klingons. The current conflict is with the Kzinti but there are still internal conflicts as the new alliance adjusts. The story includes Admiral Kirk for reference — a good touch — but its main character is Captain Secanth, a woman of Klingon origins who commands a New Federation ship. Secanth is a believable character and is not the Mary Sue stereotype. She has all the problems one would expect any starship captain to have and handles them with varying degrees of success, as one would exect in reality. With the internal and external conflicts, there is plenty to keep the reader's attention, and I found the story to be self-contained, even though I do not remember part 1 and haven't seen part 3. The other story is in the SW universe. "Swamps and Wook-iees and Spies . . .," by Pat Stanley, has several good, interesting female characters, including the widow of Admiral Ozzel and a healer who is a member of the local Sisterhood. The planet on which this takes place is detailed believably, and the characters are well-defined. The main part of the story revolves around Ranna Von, a female Jedi novice, and Lando Calrissian, who have come to the planet in question to pick up a large sum for the Rebel Alliance from Ozzel's widow. Though there is some Imperial trouble, the main problem comes from the local inhabitants, who have a long-time conflict going at the time of the story. This story is also to be continued, but I found it good enough to read on its own. STORMS 3 continues the tradition of issues 1 and 2 and should keep its readers satisfied until the next issue.
