My classic-Trek 'zine is nearly complete, in terms of writing and artwork. It won't be long until I send it along to a 'zine publisher to print it up and take it to the conventions!

I've got artwork getting done by talented people, great stories are ready for people to enjoy, and I even have some interesting editorials.
At this point, I actually find myself with material for a second issue, quite a bit of it, actually. Each issue is going to have a long, 'anchor' story as a main feature and then several other shorts of varying length, plus articles. The first issue will have a story conceived by me and written by a writer I managed to recruit off the fanfic forum, plus one humorous short written by him. He's quite good, named Dan Simons.
Kail Tescar of www.startrekanimated.com has offered to try his hand at some art for IZM as well, and I'm very pleased to have him aboard.
Last but certainly not least, I also have to thank an artist whose absolutely superb work I have known in the past, and he's already produced what I believe will prove to be a great sell-point for the 'zine in the form of a cover: julian, whom you know right here at lit.org and whose writing and art you can find at:
His black-and-white art has captured the essence of my featured story for the first issue with power and immediacy, truly in-your-face. Watch for it! That is, if you get a copy of the 'zine! When I get some better webhosting than yahoo/geocities, I'll likely feature it on the site when the cover is complete with its banner.
That's all I have for right now. Check back later - same blog time, same blog channel.
