Rukmini Pande is currently avoiding writing her PhD thesis on fan communities at the University of Western Australia. Apart from using TV shows as effective procrastination tools, she is interested in analysing intersections of identity in them, especially around the axes of gender, race, and sexuality. Her critical work has been published in Fic: Why Fanfiction Is Taking Over the World (ed. Anne Jamison) and various scholarly journals. She has also written about Empire's provocative first season at The Conversation. She can be found on Twitter @rukminipande, usually ranting about That Show You Like.

In conclusion, I argue that SF fanzines in China mostly played a transitional role. That is, when no professional platforms were available to publish articles and stories, fanzines stepped in.
