High Reaches Weyr has a fanzine, The Spire, in which we
collect stories, poems, hold and weyr reports, and whatever
else people submit, and publish them on a quarterly basis. The
editor at this time is Mary
and questions about the zine can be directed to her.
No one is obligated to write, but it's certainly something taken into account for the highest ranking positions.
The editor has both the right and responsibility to remove any portion of any story that does not fit the general timeline, or goes beyond accepted parameters. We also may reject outright any story or portion thereof which is too much beyond the general 'feel' of our timeline. This does not mean the actual writing is bad, simply that the storyline does not fit our timeline.
Each zine will contain a disclaimer which states:
