by Joe Nazzaro

What’s it like putting words in Buffy’s mouth? How do you go about inventing your own X-File, or coming up with a mission for the crew of the Enterprise? And most importantly, how do you get into the business, so you can leave being a mere fan behind, and actually write for your favourite show? Journalist Joe Nazzaro answers all these questions and more in this must-have collection of exclusive, in-depth interviews with writers and producers from TV’s hottest SF and fantasy shows. Some of the biggest names in the business talk candidly about how they started out, their inspirations and influences, and what it’s really like to create the incredible and impossible on a daily basis. A must for any fan of SF and fantasy TV.

This is a useful book for those wishing to write for this genre.
Tapert clarifies the unexpected and intended developments of sex appeal and SF comedy, in Xena: Warrior Princess and Cleopatra 2525, respectively.

Interesting snippets of Lucy's appearance on the Late Late Late Show

Lucy came out wearing a grey pants suit which looked fabulous. She looked tanned and relaxed. A very happy Lucy.

They talked about Xena and recapped what the show was about for those 2 people on the planet that haven't seen the show. They showed a clip from Amphipolis Under Siege where Xena teaches Athena's archers a thing or two and a little about Xena's history. Lucy said she was crucified 5 times and said she would rather go through labour again than get crucified. They then talked about the doco and Grace O'Malley (The Pirate Queen) which was interesting. They also discussed Lucy's Irish roots and she revealed that the Ryans were really the Walshes. She had some family there but wouldn't reveal where (smart Lucy).

The bit that really made me go awwww is Lucy revealing that Rob caught Julius kissing a Xena magnet on the fridge and that Julius really missed her :) That's so sweet and Lucy missing all of them.

She's off to Prague after Ireland to film The Ugly Americans and then back home.

Lucy looked spectacular and was her usual charming self. The Warrior Women documentary will be out in September.

Today's update has been more of cleaning house by removing dead links from the Print Archive and fixing broken links. To make it easier to find Lucy articles I've created a Lucy Print Archive on it's own.

What I found over the course of checking the links is that most external links to articles about Lucy/Renee/Xena have disappeared. If you find an article that you liked, SAVE it to your hard drive because it may not be there and it will be lost. Some very interesting articles have disappeared off the net and thus lost to the Xenaverse. The same goes for fanfiction. If you come across a story that you enjoy SAVE it.

I do believe that all the articles from newspapers and magazines from 1996 - 2003 have been checked and the links should be working.

If you find a broken link please let me know at

This site will be gone, as well as my filthy mouth at cons. But you can always drop me a line at the e mail on and I will stay in touch I promise.

The Grand Forks Herald has an interesting article on Hockey and the Mighty Ducks (team supported by Lucy and Rob) - the relevant Lucy part...
Mike Downey | No one's laughing at the Ducks now
Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO - I believe the last time I saw a Mighty Ducks of Anaheim playoff game, the national anthem was sung by Lucy Lawless, star of television's "Xena, Warrior Princess."
As fans at the Arrowhead Pond and the Ducks and Detroit Red Wings players stood at attention, Lawless, who was wearing a wildly low-cut dress, not her warrior-princess costume, spread her arms to belt out that big final note. And fell out of her outfit.
"Hockey has never been the same for me since," she said a few years later.

Hello Everyone,

Just when you thought it was over... I'll be putting up my "absolutely-last-batch-of-auctions-I-really-mean-it" for the Kevin Smith Trust Fund! After which we will be sending out an enormous check to benefit Kev's family. And er, yes, there still will be a "doll auction", which will include Linda's legendary "Deluxe Creations", but there is no set date for that one. Perhaps next month, and there will be an announcement.

But for now, I have sets of Xena and Hercules fan club items, and many, many photos of Xena, Gabrielle, Hercules, Iolaus, Callisto, Aphrodite and other cast members (yes, of course some Ares ones!). Also, lots of stuff that came with the Xena & Herc video sets - keychains, mugs, jewelry (including one limited edition Gabrielle prop necklace), Ares sleep shirts, buttons, mouse pads, screen saver CDs, magnets, more photos - plus many of the calendars. I also have a set of the lovely God Of War cards, an autographed Alti & Xena pic (signed by Claire Stansfield), and two really cool "reflective photos" of Gabrielle and Callisto. These auctions will begin Tuesday night, May 20, at around 7:30-9:00 pm Eastern U.S. time (or thereabouts), and will end the following Sunday. Minimum bids are quite low, so here's a chance to pick up some older items at decent prices - and to contribute to a very worthy

Many thanks to Lori Beth and Bonnie Strunk for the generous donations!

A Thousand Shades of Feelings by Carolyn McBride
Now available from Dare2Dream 

Here's a sneak peek at what's between the covers...
Morrigan felt empty and hollow, and very frustrated. She was hungry, her arms cramped and she had to pee. Muerte still was not back. On the one hand, that was a good thing, but on the other hand, it would be good to be able to relieve herself. Morrigan’s wrists were raw and throbbing from the rope sawing at her skin, but just as any POW had a responsibility to attempt escape, so did Morrigan. She crow-hopped the chair next to the window and peered out. There were no neighbors strolling about the neighborhood, and no cars rolling past.

‘Now is as good a chance as I’m ever going to get,’ she thought.

What is Neurofibromatoses? From the The National Neurofibromatosis Foundation site:

The neurofibromatoses (NF) are a set of genetic disorders which cause tumors to grow along various types of nerves and, in addition, can affect the development of non-nervous tissues such as bones and skin. NF causes tumors to grow anywhere on or in the body. It also leads to developmental abnormalities.

TV show update - the following is from IseQween about the Six Feet Under episode that featured Xena:

I think the episode titles are the names of the deceased featured in the opening. In this case, it's "Melinda Mary Bloch." The XWP bit comes in around 32 minutes into the ep and lasts all of about 9 seconds. It opens with Xena blowing fire at one of the cannibals in "The Abyss." We see him aflame, then another quick look at Xena fighting. The depressed wife is staring at this, while her hubby snores away beside her with his head thrown back. Also, there's a "used with permission" for Xena: Warrior Princess at the end of the credits. If anyone needs further info, they might try the SFU website, which, unfortunately, I didn't see mentioned.

"This occasion is just about making kids better," said the former Warrior Princess. She hoped the kids would be made better not only by the live diagnostic video-conferencing, but also through the system's potential for training and multi-venue, real-time brainstorming.

More on the public outcry over the name change to Starship Hospital and Lucy's involvement

  • Actor Lucy Lawless, a trustee on the fundraising Starship Foundation , called the change a "nonsense" she hoped could be reversed.
    NZ Herald - 28 April 2003
  • Actor and foundation trustee Lucy Lawless also expressed surprise at hearing of the amended name from the media rather than the board. "I think the public, who feel a great amount of ownership over the hospital, have sent a message loud and clear - 'hands off, leave the name alone'."
    NZ Herald - 29 April 2003
  • Lucy Lawless, a trustee of the fundraising Starship Foundation and the most famous person associated with the hospital, has called the change a nonsense. "The place will always be, in people's hearts, the Starship. Visually, that's what it looks like, so why strip it of official recognition?"  She and other trustees were to discuss the implications at a regular meeting at the hospital today. Ms Lawless believed it would be harder to raise money for something "that sounds like something from the socialist era".
