WE02 (9610) = TEXT edition of WHOOSH No. 2, October 1996
by Michael Klossner
I hope to index all Whoosh! issues as they appear. This version of the index covers articles only. Editorials and letters are not indexed, with the exception of the editorials and letters on the last episode in issue 58, the letters in issue 59 and 60 and the editorial on Kevin Smith in issue 66. E-mail articles, which can be found at the "Whoosh! at a Glance" page, are not indexed.
Names of interviewers (persons conducting an interview) are in the Whoosh! author/title index. Names of interviewees (persons being interviewed) are here. Thus, Bret Ryan Rudnick's interview with Steven L. Sears is found under Rudnick in the author/title index and under Sears in this index.
After each subject term in this index, each article is referenced by the number and date of the Whoosh issue in which it appears and by the author's name. In case two or more articles by the same author appear in the same issue, they are differentiated by a word in the title or by the name of the interviewee. For instance, Rudnick's three interviews in issue 24 are W24 (9809), Rudnick/Boniface, W24 (9809), Rudnick/Urban and W24 (9809), Rudnick/Todd. Kate Maynard's three articles in issue 21, "A Mind That Matters", "Deconstructing Gabrielle" and "The Gabberish Lexicon", are W21 (9806), Maynard/Mind, W21 (9806), Maynard/Deconstructing and W21 (9806), Maynard/Gabberish.
Because of the excellent table of contents found at the beginning of each Whoosh! article, I have indexed only to the article level, not to the paragraph level. The only exceptions are two short passages which seemed of special importance and which are indexed by paragraph numbers. Both are under "lesbian innuendo".

Whoosh! articles are also indexed in the Xena InfoCenter (XIC) at http://www.artemista.com. This index differs from XIC in three ways --1. XIC also indexes non-Whoosh! nonfiction articles on Xena. This index includes only Whoosh! articles.This index is more specific than XIC. I believe both approaches are useful and complimentary.
2. XIC includes short annotations for each article. This index does not.
3. XIC arranges articles in broad categories. This index assigns at least one specific subject term to each article.
Indexing is a subjective process. If any author or reader believes an article has been inadequately indexed here, please e-mail me at email@example.com or Kym Taborn at firstname.lastname@example.org and suggest subject concepts under which the article should be indexed.
