The following is from Mike from the Swedish magazine "Slice"

A Swedish Xenabook written by Michael Eriksson and Eva Hamberg, dealing with the full story of the show and sporting an extensive episode guide, will now see the light of day as two packed magazines in limited edition (500 copies). Books about tv-shows are unheard of in Sweden and no publishing house would take the book in fear of failure, although many of them appreciated the work. The first edition of "Xena - Den svenska episodguiden" ("Xena - The Swedish Episode Guide") will be released by Mike Eriksson in June. The price is set very low and anybody in Sweden that buys it before August will get a copy of the current issue of SLICE free (which sports a picture of Lucy Lawless on the cover). An ad will be printed within two months in a major publication called Widescreen. Mike is a writer for the magazine and could trade articles for advertising space. The first edition has eight chapters on the show plus the episode information on seasons 1 and 2. The second edition, due out next year, will sport the remaining four seasons of the show.

The Toronto Star 28 March 2004 has a small mention of Lucy in relation to an upcoming stage show based on Wagner's Ring Cycle. The reference to Lucy is because of Xena's Ring Trilogy of Season 6 - there is also a funky image to go with the article which I found amusing :)

No one would call Lucy Lawless a Wagnerian soprano, but Xena: Warrior Princess had her own Ring Cycle in Season 6. The three, one-hour episodes were called The Rheingold, The Ring and The Return Of The Valkyrie.

The following is from Kiwi Attic

Lucy on the front page of this issue of the Canvas. This is a massive 28cm x 33cm front cover and discusses the pitfalls of celebrity endorsements for charities. Lucy is of course a charities dream having her support however there are others who lend their name to causes that does not suit themselves or the charity and is often detrimental to the cause. The article eludes to Lucy's work with the Starship and her frequent visit without the cameras which many stars demand to further their "goodwill" and image. A great pic and article of the issue of celebrity endorsements!

Region 1 Seasons 4-6 News from Anchor Bay Enterternaiment

XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS (Seasons 4 thru 6)
Produced by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, this spinoff from HERCULES has managed to carve its own massive following and this year we will have the remaining seasons hitting DVD beginning in June. Extras will include commentary tracks with star Lucy Lawless as well as new cast & crew interviews and other exciting features to be announced.

and more about the Season 4 DVD Extras....

I received a note from Bret Rudnick, Director, HERC/XENA DVD Extra material, in Auckland, New Zealand with more info about the Season 4 DVD and the extras:

Just to let you know, the inventory of what you listed regarding the
interview/commentary content of the XENA Season 4 DVD set is not
complete.  What is listed only includes the footage that was shot in Los
Angeles, not what we shot in Auckland, which would add significantly to
the content.  Although I directed the Auckland shoots, I don't have the
authority to say what the final content will be because that is still
being determined.  Yes we had a list of what was wanted for each episode
of Season 4, 5, and 6, but until the final layout is complete and
editing is finished, we don't know what the final content will be and I
wouldn't want to give false hope to people who were counting on a
particular item making the "final" list and then have it cut for time.
Given the volume of footage shot, some of it will certainly not make the
final cut.  You'll get the "best" of what's available, but I know XENA
and HERC die-hard mega-fans are like sponges and will absorb as much
material as possible!  But at the moment, I don't know what the final
answer is.

Best regards,
Bret Rudnick
Director, HERC/XENA DVD Extra material, Auckland, New Zealand

I received a great suggestion this past week that I've decided to take it on board. Since Xena ended and the re-runs have been shown on Oxygen in the US and Foxtel in Australia, we've been getting more new fans joining the Xenaverse. So those newbies would not have read some of the absolute classic fanfic that have been created in the last 9 years. Every week I'll be showcasing a story - either classic, uber, conqueror, clonefic, or post fin fic. All types of fanfic.

I'm always open to brib...ahem..I mean suggestions for the Story of the Week <g>

This week's story is: Nor The Battle To The Strong - Part 1 All Through The Night
This story is absolute CLASSIC written by Rebekah. Rebekah passed away a few years ago but her story remains to entertain Xenites the world over. It's one of the first stories written when Xena fanfic was in it's infancy and it remains one of the best stories out there. It's a hurt/comfort tale that explores the relationship between Xena and Gabrielle (no subtext) and that is the basis of the entire show - the relationship between Xena and Gabrielle.

100% of the donations received will benefit 2 very worthy health organizations so let's show them what Lucy fans can do and dig deep.

Message from Lucy

From Sharon:

I told Lucy about all the fans coming to see her at the benefit and showed
her the messages of support coming in from around the world from people who
can't come in person.  She began reading them and then sat right down and
wrote this note: 

"Thanks so much for all your warm thoughts and encouragement.  Everybody needs a little help to get up and perform under pressure so I am going to go out there and channel Xena, the way other people do.  Never tried that before -- not since the end of the show!  It'll be lovely to have in the audience those of you who can make it.  But I'll be receiving all good vibes sent my way.  God Bless,



The following is an update from Sharon about the fans getting together to support Lucy at the 20th Annual Stage Fund Raiser.

Well, I'm hearing from lots of you that you're coming to the benefit and so is the ticket person for S.T.A.G.E. He's a very nice man named Sean and he said he was working until 8pm last night processing orders from all the Xena fans who have been calling in. I just got off the phone with Lucy and passed along this info. "Oh, my God, really!" she babbled excitedly. (grin) I think I found an area to meet in and I'm just going to call the Luckman to make sure they didn't pave over it. Then I'll send out a message. I was also thinking of bringing a balloon to hold. Think that would look a tad strange at a benefit? Ah, who cares. I want to make sure no one gets lost. (grin)

I took the virtual tour on the Luckman Fine Arts Complex web site where the event is taking place. The plaza has a double row of pillars and the front of the auditorium is glass. There are doors on both sides of a curved portion of the front. Directly across from the entrance there is a round sunken area. There are two steps going down into this sunken area. It doesn't look like it's meant to hold water so I don't think we'll need to bring our rubbers (grin) It would be out of the way of the crowds around the entrance doors. I just called the Luckman and they haven't paved over this sunken area and I'm definitely considering the balloon. So this is where we'll meet. Say a half hour before the show and right after.

Lucy at benefit news...

The following is from Sharon Delaney:

I talked with Lucy this morning and she asked if any of the fans were going to the STAGE AIDS benefit March 12, 13 and 14 in Los Angeles . As you know, she's singing and it's still a scary thing for her to do. She said if I could tell her there would be Xena fans there, she'd feel ever so much more comfortable singing for them. So I thought maybe we could get some groups together and I could let her know we'd be in the audience cheering her on and sending out good vibes We might not all be able to sit together, but maybe we could meet after the show. I'm going all three nights and you can drop me an email at  and we'll pick a spot to meet up perhaps before as well as after the show.
