Starwind: Science Fiction and Fantasy was a fanzine that published primarily science fiction and fantasy short stories. The fanzine was founded by Warren Dileo and had its first issue published in the spring of 1976 by The Starwood Press. The fanzine was headquartered at Ohio University in Columbus where most of the writers, artists and staff (including Dileo) attended. The magazine had been formally known as Rune (also created by Dileo), which was first published in 1969 and was active until the mid-‘70s. Shortly afterwards, Rune was retitled as Hobson’s Choice before finally being changed to Starwind. The second issue of Starwind was not edited by Dileo but by Elbert Linsdey Jr. Starwind was fairly short lived and ended after its second issue was published in the autumn of 1976.

Apazine created by P.L. (Pamela Lynn) Caruthers-Montgomery (PLCM) as part of mailing #125 (intended for #124) from members of the Southern Fandom Press Alliance. The typed content was created on March 8, 1985. The main cover was xeroxed on red paper to represent "The Flame" which also referenced Caruthers-Montgomery's red hair and outspoken personality. The primary content is xeroxed on white paper.
PLCM was awared the Rebel Award later in 1985 with her husband, Larry Montgomery, for contibution they both made as long-term members. She also became president of the Southern Fandom Confederation for 5 years and was a president emeritius after her tenure. PLCM (Caruthers-Montgomery) later "discovered the world of BBSing" (bulletin board systems) and left Fandom. PCLM passed away in August 2003.
