Where do fans exchange ideas off line? The traditional newsletter format has been good to U.N.C.L.E. fandom for a long time. Here are some venerable publications:
U.N.C.L.E. Headquarters is the name of the U.N.C.L.E. fan club and also the newsletter it publishes. The first issue came out in January 1975 , thereby making it the longest running U.N.C.L.E. publication of all times. The quarterly newsletter offers comprehensive coverage of the series and their actors and probably everything you ever want to find out about U.N.C.L.E. that you can think of.
For more information, please contact Sue Cole, president of U.N.C.L.E. HQ either via email or by writing to her:
The Network is a quarterly newsletter / discussion magazine devoted to U.N.C.L.E. - the characters, actors and the creative minds behind the scenes. It has strong British roots, having begun its existence in 1984 as a service to British fans. Currently, it has approximately 60 subscribers, with about 20% from the U.S. A typical issue is about 25 - 30 pages on A-4 paper (a format used in Europe which is longer in length as compared to the 8.5 X 11 size the U.S. typically use). To give you an idea of its coverage, take a look at the contents of its February 1999 issue - 13 pages of letters of discussion from subscribers; a short story; a report by Ellen Druda on her visit to see Communicating Doors; a collection of mini-reviews of The Arabian Affair written by subscribers (the episode review is a regular feature); artwork; an excerpt from a CW Walker story; six pages of advertisements for clubs, nonfiction zines, fiction zines, conventions, for sale and wanted. Like all the other newsletters listed here, The Network is produced on a strictly non-profit, amateur basis.
Annual rates are as follows: L8 (U.K.), L10 (rest of Europe), L14 (Pacific), U.S. $20 (U.S. / Canada). Payment must be in British pound sterling only; however, U.S. and Canadian subscribers may pay in U.S. currency denominated personal checks or money orders to The Network's U.S. agent
Back issues are also available.
