The Best Little K/Smas Zine in Texas is a slash Star Trek: TOS 56-page anthology. It was never sold but copied and given away. It has a sister zine called Best Little Valentine Zine in Texas. It was published by W.H.I.P.S. of Houston/DOBS of Houston. "DOBS" is a reference to Dirty Old Broads.

"The Best Little K/Smas Zine in Texas, published in December, is another type of zine we’re seeing more of these days: a zine to celebrate a special event. When thirteen writers gathered for a Christmas party, the fun must continue in the form of a free zine. (As a note said: “This publication is Not for Sale at any price but we’ll share it with anybody foolish enough to ask.”) [1]
