L. Falcon Media Fandom Collection

 Collection
Identifier: msc1108

Abstract

This collection represents the assemblage of fanzines, works of fan fiction and fan art, and scripts ranging from the 1960s to the 2000s. Compiled by L. Falcon, the media fandoms include Blake's 7, Shadow Chasers, Star Trek, Star Wars, Rat Patrol, Fantastic Journey, Man from U.N.C.L.E., War of the Worlds, Doctor Who, and several others. There is a particular interest in Shadow Chasers, as the collection contains iterations of TV episode scripts, clippings pertaining to the actors, and playbills from stage productions in which they performed. More general categories include Multifandom, which includes zines or anthologies of stories encompassing multiple fandoms; and Crossover, which describes stories in which characters and universes from different fandoms encounter each other.

The collection consists mainly of zines and works of fan fiction, supplemented by official magazines, fan art, convention material, scripts, calenders, playbills, A/V material, clippings, and other miscellany. A particularly notable item is the 4-section portrait of Spock formed out of the ASCII character set by the Princeton University Computer Center Clinic.
