[zine]: January 2005 was the 100th issue of KSP, and that issue became part newsletter and part zine with over 100 pages. I think Shelley, Jenna, and Robin can congratulate themselves on this zine as well as everyone who participated. I frankly enjoyed all the letters, poems, art, and stories. It was quite a trip down memory lane, reading some of the commentary/letters, and especially so the two long ones by Kathy R. and Killa. I would have preferred to have said something special and pertinent about every story, but since most of the stories were short it is hard. And all the stories are good so there is little point in repeating the same things per story, such as "This is really well written." [8]
[zine]: As I finished it and closed the last page, light broke through. I sat back, stunned, knowing I was and have been in the presence of greatness--the expert, insightful, sensitive and generous K/S fandom. This may seem like an over-the-top statement but I make it with the deepest sincerity and the humblest gratitude. Every one of the contributions to that zine was remarkable, touching, moving, simply beautiful and transcendent. All of those life-sustaining attributes reached a peak in the Celebration Zine. Liz's essays just shone with intelligence and sensitivity, and I read them over and over again. For years and years I've hungered to hear my thoughts and feeling on the episodes put down in black and white, and finally there they were. Reading them was like food for my K/S soul. Thank you, Liz, for creating that emotional feast, I know what time and effort it took.... I haven't time to enumerate my responses to each and every lovely, blissful story but all the authors, poets and artists are in my thoughts and in my prayers—to keep on Trekkin', to keep the K/S beacon burning and steady-as-she-goes. From the young, vibrant K/S newcomers to the solid base of passionate K/S pioneers. I know this will be a very, very long time [9]
