Welcome to Fanlore, Chavey! Your edit on the Allan Asherman page encouraged me to gather up a bunch more. If you know of more, it would be most appreciated. --MPH (talk) 12:51, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

You certainly did! I added four more: the Perihelion contributions are from ZineWiki, and the contributions to Star Battles and The Monster Times are from the online SF-Encyclopedia. The Alien Worlds contribution is from efanzines (just search for "Asherman"). I don't know what your policy is on linking to offsite pages, so I left those last three items unlinked. I also added a section on books by Asherman, one of which (Star Trek Compendium) is also mentioned in SF-E. Finally, he has four professional publications (as listed at isfdb.org), that I'm not sure how to incorporate. This includes fiction in Vertex, an introduction in a Gregg Press edition of H.G. Wells' work, two essays in The Twilight Zone magazine, and the Alien Worlds Flash Gordon essay that I included in the "fanzine contribution" listings. (That last entry doesn't really belong there. Alien Worlds had been a fanzine, then tried to go pro, and his essay is in the only issue of it as a prozine.) Just for fun, I invite you to see what another fan had to say about Asherman in So It Goes #18 (that link should go to the appropriate page, then look for "Steam Engine Time".) That link also discusses Asherman's participation in the first Star Trek convention (if the author is correct that his was the first). Chavey (talk) 14:29, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
The links were fine; I added them in. Plus, I made a page for Star Trek Revival! Thank you for finding that, Chavey! --MPH (talk) 18:24, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
