The Newsletters

ORACLE has been publishing newsletters since the club began in 1995. The frequency of publication varied during the first couple of years, but since 2000 the newsletter has been coming out regularly four times a year (in January, April, July, and October), and every issue contains a combination of interviews with René, reports of conventions and reviews of René's work (film, TV, theatre) by fans, and lots of photos.

We have a limited supply of copies of back issues of the newsletter available for purchase. The list below includes the date of publication, price, and a description of a few of the major articles for each issue. Ordering information is at the bottom of the page.
