  • The Official Xena Fan Club page has a really cute drawing that Lucy drew of Xena. The Warrior Princess is looking a little skinny <g> The following is from Sharon about the drawing:
    That little Xena drawing was done by Lucy on a note she was writing to someone while standing in a parking lot.  It's only about 1" tall.  Doncha just love the little tiny kneepads!  I'll have to see if I can get her to do one for the newsletter.  I wonder if Renee draws.  Maybe I can get a matched set <G> Check it out:

A huge thank you to the Creation Entertainment team and all the convention attendees who bought auction items in support of the Starship Foundation. You are all such fantastic people! We are always so grateful for the support we get from Lucy's many fans on your side of the world. On this side of the world, I can report that our fundraising is as challenging as always and we have a huge list of goals and targets to help our sick children. Our big mission this year will be to complete our fundraising for the Starship Heart Unit, which is due to open in October.  Lucy attended our Starship Charity Ball, which had a strong hearts theme late last year. Photos of her, Craig Parker and Jennifer Ward-Lealand at the ball are on our website at in our Foundation Supporters -- Celebrities section. Our warmest gratitude again. We are so fortunate to have Lucy on our Board of Trustees, who is both generous and dedicated to our cause. We couldn't do it without all of your help.

My best regards,
Andrew Young

More on Lucy's singing gig at the NZ Pre-Oscars bash in LA.
I received a note from Anne who was at the event and took video footage of the event (this is not a bootleg copy - they were permitted to film). The following is Anne's note about the screengrabs and the video which will be available for sale:

"They are actually screengrabs from a digital video. I will be offering the video for sale and I want to make it clear that it is not a bootleg video. Video taping and photography were _not_ prohibited that evening. It was more like a party - Lucy even looks right in my camera, smiles and gives me 2 V signs at the end of the video. This is much the same as the video that Kiwi Attic has for sale of Lucy & Daves summer tour.  The video includes footage of Lucy & Rob going up onstage to get an award - tho there was a glitch and they didn't have the award there, so the presenter offers them his tie and best wishes - saucy Lucy undoes his tie and makes off with it!

There are also two brief bits of Lucy & Renee talking to the press.

The music part includes Lucy singing Maxine & Brass In Pocket solo, then singing 8 songs with Dave Dobbyn.  I was sitting in a front row table for most of the shoot, so I was very close to the stage.

Original Fiction

I'm very pleased to announce the addition of Sarah to the Gen-Fic Section

  • Added Untouchable (Complete) by Sarah
    With the world already destroyed and the remaining inhabitants either immoral elitists or subhuman foragers, is there any hope for redemption? This detailed and enigmatic work focuses on the not so human journey of a woman named Nyx. Nyx doesn't fit in anywhere and while she thinks she has people down to a t, there is one person she doesn't know at all - herself. Her survival instincts lead her to discover a relic from the Beforetime, and perhaps emotions she didn't even know she possessed. If you ever fought for a futile cause, or if you ever wondered if people could arise, then this is the book for you.

  • Added The Grave Robber (Alt) by Jane Fletcher
    Corrine doesn't believe in ghosts. So what problem could there be with
    retrieving a box of treasure from a crypt?

A few years ago there was an interview on ET (April 1999 - it was during the taping of The Convert) where the cicadas were making an awful racket while Lucy was talking. There is a new insight into how bad these little insects can be on filming from the Sunday Star Times: A part of the article refers to Xena

David Madigan, who worked on Whale Rider and Xena, has labelled the noise "the wall of death".

"They can render dialogue impossible to use. It is very difficult to get rid of them and I am often seen running around beating trees with a microphone boom.

"On Xena we were shooting in an orchard where day after day I lost masses of sound. I got in the mode of bumping cicadas out of their environment, which is usually successful, but I ended up breaking a boom in sheer anger because of the noise they were making."

Xena lives

In a major press event this past Wednesday, February 26th, Anchor Bay Entertainment unveiled their plans to launch Xena: Warrior Princess on DVD.  This unprecedented multimillion campaign will launch when Xena: The Warrior Princess Season One DVD becomes available to consumers on April 29, 2003, and includes the $100,000 "Quest for the Golden Sword" Sweepstakes. Grand prize will be Xena's "Golden Sword," which is being coined "The most remarkable and impressive Xena collectible ever created." Meticulously hand- crafted in Spain by Marto, the world's finest master swordsmith, this legendary blade has been forged out of ten pounds of solid gold and has an estimated value of $100,000. 

"This campaign is indicative of the tremendous growth Anchor Bay Entertainment has experienced in the DVD market," commented Kimberly Kisner, Senior Brand Manager of Anchor Bay Entertainment. "We are delighted to be able to offer our consumers a chance to win one of the most unique prizes ever offered, while forging a terrific partnership with our licensor, Davis-Panzer."

Specs for Xena: Warrior Princess - The Complete First Season includes all 24 first season episodes presented in their original 4:3 full screen aspect ratios and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, plus a bonus CD-ROM with a Xena screensaver, a still gallery, the "Xena Chronicles," Xena trivia, and talent bios. Retail is $89.95, and expect future Xena sets to be announced in the coming months

and details more information about the contest

The promotion begins April 29, the Xena set’s street date, and continues into July, when the grand-prize winner will be picked at a drawing during the annual Video Software Dealers Association convention in Las Vegas. Entry forms will be included in the “Xena” boxed set. Each set will also include a six-question trivia contest, which does not have to be completed to qualify for the sweepstakes, as well as a “Xena” commemorative coin and an order form for a coin holder. The holder will contain slots for six coins -- one for each season. The sword is being handcrafted at Marto, a company in Toledo, Spain, said Peter S. Davis, president of Davis/Panzer Productions Inc., which produces “Xena” as well as “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Highlander.” In addition to the one grand-prize winner of the sword, which is valued at $100,000 and will contain 10 pounds of gold, 10 first-place winners will get handcrafted Warrior Edition “Xena” swords valued at $300, 25 second-place winners will take home official “Xena” satin crew jackets, and 100 third-place winners will get “Xena” Warrior Edition hand-forged stainless steel letter openers. The “Xena” promotion will roll into a major sweepstakes for “Hercules,” due from Anchor Bay in June. Details of the “Hercules” sweepstakes have not been announced. The ambitious promotional campaign will comprise television, radio, online and print initiatives, said Kimberly Kisner, senior brand manager for Anchor Bay.

Xena Movie News

The following is from Katherine Fugate's web site -

THE XENA MOVIE: at the pasadena convention, i was asked whether there would be a xena movie and whether or not i was being considered as the potential writer of the movie. i answered that there had been talks about a potential xena movie, and that rob tapert and i had met about potentially working together on one - SHOULD it come to fruition. as i said at the convention, every movie takes this path. and it's rob's job, as the producer, to find a writer and suggest that writer to the studio. at the convention, i was very cautious to state any xena movie, as i understand it, is in the inchoate stages of birth and anything could happen - as it often does. i would also like to add that i was honored rob spoke with me about potentially writing a movie. as i said at the convention, rob is the biggest ally a xena movie has and he's a loyal man to those he's worked with. if a xena movie gets made - it will only happen because of rob and his belief in one..

Xenaverse News - Kevin Smith Trust Fund Auction

An avid Kevin Smith collector, Lori Witt, has recently decided to downsize her collection - in an amazing feat of exuberance, she collected not just one of everything she could, but 2, 3, or 4....sometimes more. This created a huge storage problem and she kindly gave most of it to Julie Stoller and me, Mary Sauers. We've decided to auction it off in stages and collect the funds in a special account that would, in the end, be given to the Kevin Smith Trust Fund. So, it is with great pleasure that our USA Kevin Smith Trust Fund Auction on eBay is announced.

The following is from Xenite and Herculean Webmasters Association


The time has come for a new Board of Directors to assume the responsibility of running the XHWA and its website. At this time we would like to ask that any active member interested in volunteering to serve on the Board for the2003 year should email the current board with your "resume" as sorts. (see below for details) The XHWA has been a free site listing for all its members for a good number of years. It has provided links to your sites and has helped to promote all the sites of its members, thereby generating traffic to each of your sites. It has done so without requesting a fee for the service, as other places are beginning to. All we've ever asked of our members is that they place our logo on their site to show they are a member, which generates more members. The XHWA now requires the assistance of all those we have helped generate traffic to. Not by requesting funds to keep the Association alive, but in the form of volunteers to help run the site and serve as the Board of Directors for the new year. For without your assistance, the site will surely cease to exist. So please, volunteer your services and help the XHWA stay alive so that it may continue to serve the fandom. As always, if no viable Board is formed for the new year, the XHWA will retire from existence, something we are sure no one wishes to have happen. The Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring the Association function, making decisions on regular business that does not require a membership vote, appointing Officers such as the Membership Secretary/Webmaster/Newsletter Editor (or performing these functions themselves if necessary), monitoring website functionality and any design or content changes, administering any membership votes that must be held, and any other business related to Association leadership. The term for a Board is 12 months and the Board shall consist of no less than 3 members (current charter does not quite accurately indicate previous changes to this policy).

If you are interested, please email  with the following information: -Real name and any nicknames/handles (real name will not be shared with the membership unless by you) -XHWA member number, site name, and site URL (all applicants must be active members)
-Email address
-Basic overview of your involvement in the fan community, your reason to wish to be on the Board of Directors, and any pertinent skills or experience that would benefit the XHWA and the Board.

Thank you,
The 2002 Board of Directors

But Joanna Holbrook-Sutherland senses that the photograph she encounters at an exhibit in a trendy London gallery could change her life - if only she can locate the homeless woman whose haunting face has been captured within it --- a face that has also been haunting her dreams. Jo knows it's completely unrealistic to believe that she'll be able to find one beleaguered blonde among the thousands of men and women trying to stay alive on the cold, hard streets of London. It's also completely out of character for Jo to even try - the spoiled socialite is noted for her bed hopping and bad behavior, not her good works. Unfortunately, dropping the search doesn't seem to be an option. Jo painstakingly assembles the crumbs of information that eventually will lead her to a frigid park in Whitechapel and to Rocky, a young woman with fearful secrets. She has no idea that the hardest part is still ahead, dealing with the debilitating physical and mental consequences of living on the street for five years; and with the horrors that drove Rocky there in the first place.

The following is from Cavalier Press

A New Publisher
Brings Innovation to GLBT Literature

Cavalier Press is something new in the publishing world – a small GLBT press with the values and reach of a large house.

In the last 20 years, most of the original GLBT publishing houses were bought up by the big boys – and over time, their imprints were simply allowed to die on the vine. A few valiant survivors struggled on, and in the last couple of years, a number of new small press companies have opened, with varying success.

But the GLBT community deserves choices, deserves good fiction, and deserves a publisher with the sense to reach out, to market effectively, to work hard to get books that we like in the mainstream bookstores. That’s what Cavalier is committed to – providing good stories for the GLBT community that they can easily find, buy, read and enjoy!

Over the next few months, Cavalier will be accepting submissions and will be bringing some outstanding books to market, some from authors you already know and love, others from new folks with talent and skill.

As they say, watch our space at  to see what’s new, where you can find our books, and to give us feedback on what you, our readers, would like!

The following is from Missy about the support letters:

Just wanted to say thanks to those who have already sent in letters of comment and support for Lucy, Rob, and the rest of the Xena team. - I received over fifty today, from many different countries and many different facets of Xena fandom. Some of them were FIN lovers, some FIN
haters, some of them were Gabrielle fans, some Xena fans, and some were people who just loved watching the show and missed it. Keep them coming!
