Thank you to "Anonymous" for the lovely flower gift and her note, which read:
"Thank you for all your hard work in sharing classic zine stories with us!"

You are very welcome. :-)

Since I didn't post this info here, I'll do it now:

Here are the links for the TOS stories that have been recently posted to
ksarchive.com as part of the project to upload K/S stories originally
published in print fanzines. These stories are all being posted with permission of
the author.

First off, thank you so much to the following people for their help in
making this project a reality: morgan_dawn, Mary Crawford, Mary Monroe, Carolyn Spencer, and jennasts. And thanks in advance to the people who are working on upcoming uploads. Here's what people have done/are doing: OCR scanning, retyping, proofreading, and photocopying.

Volunteers for this project always welcome! The OCR scanning has been a
big bottleneck, but I've found a couple more people who can help with that
aspect, Anyone else who can help with OCR scanning, please let me know. NOTE:
This is NOT regular scanning, which creates an image. This is scanning
into a text file, so the resulting file can be edited in a word processing
program.

Assistance also needed in photocopying clean copies of stories from the
original fanzines, proofreading the OCR scans, and retyping stories that can't
be properly scanned due to the quality of the original.

So here are the links. I'm including some stories posted a few months ago,
as I neglected to thank people at that time:

Thank you so much for this list and the work you are doing with the archives. There are SO many stories I have missed as I have never read a fanzine. Can you believe that? And I have been in fandom since 1972....I was 9 then but you get the point!
LL&P \\//_
You're very welcome. :-) I've uploaded three more this week - I'll be posting the links tomorrow.
Have I told you that I love you yet?

I don't have access to a scanner, but I'm happy to clean up and/or proofread OCR'd documents and that sort of thing. My heaviest time in school will end at the end of April, so I'll be more in touch then?
Super! Yes, get in touch when you have more time and I'll send you some files. :-)
Thank you for all the work! I really appreciate being able to read these stories at all and especially at the central archive. I'm very happy about this chance. A big thankyou to the authors and volunteers. :-)
You're very welcome! The authors are delighted with the feedback they are getting for their stories.
Oh very cool!
I keep looking for names I recognize - and I'm not disappointed, but.

Wow.
There's more to come...! :-)
Wow. THANK YOU. As a younger fan who never had access to zines (except for the truckload I bought at my first BasCon last year!) this is AMAZING.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.
You are very welcome. See you at next BASCon?
