  • a submission request for Devotion, a zine to be published by CatalenaMara and Dovya Blacque --
    2016 brings Star Trek's 50th Anniversary and to commemorate it, two K/S editors are coming together to produce an anthology exploring the beginning and the later years of the K/S relationship. We're looking for fiction, poetry, and art dealing either with the beginning of Kirk and Spock's relationship, whenever that began (be it during the episodes or the 6 movies) OR the later years of their established relationship (be it during the 5-year mission or the events of the movies). We hope to give readers an anthology that celebrates the essence, beauty, diversity and love of K/S. Devotion will be a collection of stories concentrating on one or the other: the beginning or the maturity of Kirk and Spock's love. Guidelines are simple: we'll consider almost anything that explores either the first bloom of romantic love or the fruitful fullness of that love. We want you to feel free to squeeze your own plots and adventures around the episodes and movies 1-6, too. Our minds are pretty open so we want you to let your imaginations fly!

  • no one is using the US K/S Press Library: "Carolyn Spencer, the US K/S Press Librarian, has reported that no one has borrowed from the library in quite some time. One of the main library expenses is the library PO Box. We had no funds to renew the library PO Box this past renewal period, so I paid for it myself. If we are to continue the library we will need to have donations to pay for the PO Box. If you’d like to make a donation, please PayPal it to: [address redacted]. Additionally, we would like to gauge interest in keeping the US Library open. Would it be productive to announce the library on tumblr? If so, can anyone recommend the tags I should use?"
