A 1985 Proposal

In Datazine #38, there was a proposed zine by Leah McGrew: "I'm looked for responses to a short run of stories from my original universe, The M.A.G.I. Files, which have been printed partly in "Tri*Way" and in a couple of other places. There will also be new ones, by me, as well as by C. Crouch and possibly others. Some of these stories have crossover aspects such as Man from U.N.C.L.E. and possibly others -- maybe even Batman! Plans are nebulous, obviously, as yet, but depending on response (amount, frequency, and swiftness) printing date might be anywhere from 8 months to 1987. Business sized SASE please."
