Dune Sea Express

From 1990 to 1995, ETC produced 24 issues of a newsletter/fanzine. The DSE began as a bi-monthly in January 1990 and grew into a fanzine in 1991. Beginningin March of 1992 the 'zine went quarterly. Over the years we switched from full page to half page formats featuring fiction, non-fiction, cartoons, art, poetry, book reviews, and articles of all types and sizes.

These issues are being made available as PDF files. The print issues were scanned as is. Back in 1990 we had dot matrix printers and layouts were still pasted in place. Technology has come a long way since then. The earlier issues are the more "primative" looking but they are legible. Addresses have been blocked out, none of the offers are still in effect. These are relics from the past. Enjoy!
