Anne Gray: Fanwriting

I think this is a complete list of items (not including Letters of Comment, or LoCs) that I have published in Fanzines. I'm not including editorials for the fanzines I've edited, nor articles for progress reports and convention program books, though that is also fanwriting. I'm sticking to internal fanzine content, here. Note that I appear in the following publications under two names: Anne KG Murphy (2002-2009), and Anne Gray (2010-present).

TAFF Reports etc:
My husband Brian and I were the 2010 delegates for the TransAtlantic Fan Fund (TAFF), which took us to the UK in March of that year, traveling from St Patty's Day through Easter.

One of these I discovered by searching, which continues to be an essential and wonderful site. Most of these .pdf links lead there as well.

While I do like Drink Tank and Journey Planet as fanzines, I feel I should note that the main reason I keep writing for them is I keep getting invited to do so. I'm interested in writing for others, I'm just less sure what anybody else might like to receive from me. If you might like for me to write for your fanzine, sending me your theme or some topic suggestions and a deadline 1-3 months ahead of time *seriously* increases the chances I'll write something. Editorial requests. They work. :)

Reviews for Emerald City
In 2005 I was the staff copy editor of the fanzine Emerald City. Cheryl and I decided to have me try producing a regular short fiction review column. I reviewed some magazines, the Hugo Award nominees in short fiction that year, a few anthologies, and even one novel before I ran out of steam the following year. A few months later, Cheryl pulled the plug on the publication as a whole. I really appreciate that she has kept the archive online.
