Alnitah

cover by & © Helen McCarthy

Alnitah, a fiction anthology zine devoted to classic Trek, appeared from 1975 to 1983. There were a total of 15 issues, with two omnibus collections in 1980 and 1982 reprinting stories from these issues. It’s the only zine from Orion Publications, set up by Joyce Cluett, Margaret Draper and Ann Looker.

Writers and artists included Beth Hallam, Robin Hill, Michael Eason, Helen Sneddon, Sheila Clark and Julia Felton. Humour was a feature of the magazine, with playful illustrations, cartoons, comic strips and poetry. Sneddon’s Sehlat Sagas back cover strips were a regular feature.

    You might be interested in Fanlore…if you don’t know of it already. It has quite a bit on Alnitah:

    Alnitah wasn’t the only zine from Orion Publications. We also produced Grope.
