Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Kirk/Spock fiction
Fans have written our own history!
Legacy is complete in five volumes.
"The wait was worth it!! Legacy is a monumental landmark not only for K/S but for slash and fan writing as a whole. Jenna and the gang, you've made history."
Legacy is not your ordinary all-fiction Kirk/Spock zine. The Legacy project commemorates the thirtieth anniversary of K/S and traces our history with an emphasis on its earliest days. The editors tapped into the recollections of those who were truly there at the beginning of the whole slash movement.
Read not only brand-new fiction and poetry, see not only new artwork, but also read lively non-fiction articles about the growth of K/S zines, the history of K/S art, the explosion of K/S onto the Internet, and, especially, read the fierce debate that erupted in the seventies over the whole concept of a media-based same-sex pairing. Flamewars online have nothing over the battle fought in the pages of the early letterzines and zine letter columns.
PLUS read interviews with many of those who were there at the Time of the Beginning, including talks with Gayle F. (author of the Cosmic Collected, including "Desert Heat"), Carol F. (editor of Thrust), Leslie Fish, Diane Marchant (author of the first published K/S story), Victoria Clark (editor of Nome), Syn Ferguson, Caren Parnes, Darien Duck, Dovya Blacque, Georgia Barnes, Kathleen Resch, Marnie S., Nancy Kippax, Natasha Solten, Noel Silva, Robin Hood, Fiona James, Suzan Lovett, and Valerie Piacentini.
There are more than 550 pages of brand new, never published, never posted fiction in the five volumes of Legacy. Authors were presented with more than forty traditional plotlines that have been used over the years in the fandom and asked to choose one. You might be surprised at what they picked to write about!
Authors include: Debbie Cummins, Deanna Gray, Anne Elliot, Khiori, Isabol, Jesmihr, Kathy Stanis, Kathleen Resch, Carolyn Spencer, Anna S. Greener, Dovya Blacque, Elise Madrid, Robin Hood, Diegina, A.T. Bush, Patricia Roe, Bethany Hawke and Addison Reed.
From Linda B.:
"Legacy is truly amazing. It is presented so meticulously, as you would expect of Beyond Dreams Press. I can't believe what a labor of love this has been for all concerned". It's such a perfect mix of articles on how K/S evolved, interviews with various people involved in K/S over the last 30 years, and then stories by some of the best K/S authors out there. If you love K/S, this is something that you MUST have!"
"This is the apex of K/S. Simply amazing. A masterpiece. I think I am in shock."
From Ivy Hill:
"Legacy is a gem - a true legacy of K/S and for K/S. Thanks don't begin to sum up the appreciation I feel for all the research, writing, editing, that everyone involved has done to make this possible."
