The following are magazine articles I've collected through the years.

These are articles I thought other fans would like to have access to, especially

those who have recently become fans. I have been a fan since 1985.

They are the property of the writer, and are here only to share with other fans.

If you have an article you'd like to contribute, just let me know at:
