Goldenlake Fanzine Issue #1  
Giantkiller - June 2009

Welcome to the first edition of Giantkiller, the Goldenlake Tamora Pierce Fanzine!

Our format is interactive - all articles are summarised in this post, with links provided to the full articles, where readers can comment and discuss the articles. The Fanzine is very board-centric, and this particular edition focuses on Goldenlake's opening and early endeavours! A full PDF version of the fanzine will become available in early June on the Goldenlake Resources site, should you wish to obtain a copy of it. It is also available on the Goldenlake Discussion Board.

So, without further adieu, I give you: Giantkiller!
