We had a request to feature more media fanzines, so here is a box, chosen at random, from the incredible Mariellen “Ming” Wathne Fanzine Collection (MsC 313).  [Read about the AMAZING collection here!]

This particular box includes Beauty and the Beast and B&tB crossover fanzines dating from 1988-1992.  Beauty and the Beast was a CBS show from 1987-1990 starring Linda Hamilton and Ron Pearlman with George R. R. Martin as a writer and producer!

Stop by and read!

These are neat. I think I saw part of their zine collection last summer. It’s too bad they’re not doing item cataloguing though. It’s not that useful to know that their collection contains Slime Trails #7 (1998) if there’s no information as to what Slime Trails is about.

So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.

I’m dubious. I should read a passage:

It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
But wait….

You have some explaining to do, Canada.

You guys don’t understand. Screw it being a bestseller, 50 Shades of Gray is a bestseller, this book won the Governor General’s Award. That’s the highest literary award in Canada. That’s the pulitzer prize of Canadian literature. Bear is a part of Canadian literary history.

“harlequin romance paperback”… sigh….
I’m still of the opinion that this book was the only English-language fiction book released in Canada that year and won by defult.
