Summary

As described on the publisher's website:

Many Wookiees have found the road to fame and fortune (or at least fortune ... well, at least a living wage) is to be found in the trading routes of the Outer Rim. While Wookiees are perfectly happy roaming the galaxy, they are happiest if they can occasionally meet with other Wookiees to share memories of home, sing the songs they grew up with, test their strength against each other, trade with each other, and, in the evenings, tell stories. So they meet once a year on a designated planet, all converging at the same time along with buyers, a few Wookiees from home, and various other visitors. Wookiee Rendezvous is a collection of those stories, songs, and tall tales.

About the Art

Thanks to Sandi Jones and the artists of StarQuest (1988). I fell in love with so many of the illos in Gus' copy that Carolyn Golledge arranged permission to reprint them here. Carolyn also arranged with Dianne Smith for the stunning front and back covers. And thanks to Candy Cruz for the droid painting. WR just wouldn't be complete without Threepio and Artoo. [1]

An International Zine

Also, to my knowledge, this is the first ever internationally created SW zine! Me, working from Australia, together with the "batcave residents" - Becky, Doc Kelly, Gus, Kate, Jess, and Judy. And then too, Judy and Nicola in England, and Zyene in Germany complete the international flavor. [2]
