Xenaverse News

  • Moore Creations, a company that produces action figures (they're responsible for the highly acclaimed "Buffy" line) have just landed the rights to the next series of "X-Files" action figures.  They're already producing an action figure of a "Lara Croft" like character who appeared in only one episode of "X-Files". With Lucy Lawless appearing in at least 2, maybe 8 episodes there is a real possibility with enough requests they may produce a figure based on her character.  The person in charge of products and marketing's email is Erin at erin@moorecreations.com  They will reply to your emails.  Many thanks to Adam H. for the information.

  • STOP THE THEFT (from Artemis)  A group called "XenaStamps" on the Internet (I will not link the URL for free advertisement) have been STEALING wallpapers, scans, screen captures , and even Creation's own fan club logo to sell BOGUS stamps that aren't real by any means. What will happen if they aren't stop will be the ultimate evil. ALL of us who provide a service of art will be forced to remove them from the web entirely.  For complete info and email addresses go to the Xenaverse News page.  Thanks to Cousin Liz for passing along this information.

Today's update is my last until I come back from my vacation in the US and Canada in 8 weeks time. In my absence Redhead has volunteered (heh) to take over updating the site. Be nice to her <g> If you are a bard on The Bard's Corner and want to submit your work please send it to redhead_web@hotmail.com   (or if you have any news article or scans please direct them to Redhead). 

I'll be at Dragon*con (Atlanta - 31 August - September 3) and if you would like to say hello I'll be at the Renaissance Alliance Publishing FanFaire (I'll have copies of Out of Darkness and You Must Remember This with me). The FanFaire is at 330 Peachtree Avenue) for most of the day on Saturday. You'll also get the chance to meet the wonderfully talented group of authors at RAP and the heartworking RAP crew. And it's FREE so come over <g>

I will be sending my little useless trivia pieces for Red to post on my journeys to The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave to keep you all amused. This is going to be extremely strange for me as I won't be updating the site in nearly 5 years <g> I'm looking forward to meeting all the friends I have made through this fandom and having a jolly good time! So until then,

Battle On!

Created new section - Xena CD, DVD & Video News

3259190396630.jpg (2750 bytes)This is somewhat amusing - not sure what it says about the people who are choosing the covers for the videos. I've noticed that the cover and sometimes the back cover pictures of the episodes don't match or they use the same picture on the front cover. Verrrry strange. As an example the following cover is for the upcoming release of Return of Callisto and Warrior Princess Tramp. I didn't know what Cecrops (The Lost Mariner) is there. I bet they will put Callisto or Princess Diana on the cover of the release for The Lost Mariner. Princess Diana has appeared twice already so I'm going for Callisto. <g>

  • The following was posted by Renee to the Threadgills Message Board -
    August 3, 2001
    Hello there everyone. I wanted to take an opportunity to thank you all for the support you have shown to us on "Xena". What a great contribution to charities and "voice for good" over the years. I think that is still what continues to amaze me most about the effect the show has had around the world, and it was because of all of you. I'm happily waiting for our first baby. Feeling better than ever. Maybe just a bit grumpy at times for lack of sleep, but that is the miracle of birth, I suppose. Anyway, I'm sure you haven't seen the last of me, and until then thanks again for helping to make "Xena" one of the most unforgettable shows on television. Cheers, Renee

"A Call for Submissions...

Yellow Rose Books, the lesbian romance division of Renaissance Alliance Publishing, Inc. is currently filling its publication schedule for the rest of 2001 and for 2002 - which means we're looking for full-length novels with lesbian romance as the main focus. Unlike some other publishers, we do not solicit manuscripts because we have a limited number of manuscripts that we accept per year and we want to make sure that every author has a fair chance of being considered for publication. To learn more about RAP,
Inc visit http://www.rapbooks.com. If you are interested in submitting a manuscript, please consult and follow our submission guidelines at http://www.rapbooks.com/yrbsubmission.html.

CARES - Starship Foundation

The following is from Mist at Sword and Staff

I heard from Starship this morning. They will be sending the Star Bears, enough at least to cover the number I originally requested, so all of you who asked to receive one (or more) will get them. I am setting the donation amount for each bear at $10 US. That's a bit more than they sell for in New Zealand, but it's a fair amount and that will
certainly cover the shipping costs from NZ and leave a donation for Starship.
As always, the donation goes directly to STARSHIP FOUNDATION, not Sword and
Staff. Anyone who hasn't already ordered a bear and would like one, please contact
me directly at MistNY@aol.com   I will gladly add you to the list of those receiving bears. Any questions or comments, please let me know.
