Spring of 2004 was also 10 years since the first issue of the fanzine “Dorado Raganos” — “The Witches of Dorado” came out. Dorado was the name of Vilnius science fiction club, to which all of us, editors of the fanzine (5-6 people, depending on who’s counting) belonged. It was in the Dorado club that we met and decided to start a fanzine for publishing Lithuanian science fiction stories, poems and art. We published quite a few foreign authors as well. 10 years later, all three of the “founding mothers” — Audrone, Diana, and I — lived abroad, but we kept the fanzine going nonetheless. By 2004 we were still publishing 1-2 issues a year.
We commemorated our 10th anniversary at Lituanicon with speeches, cake and champagne. A troupe of high school dancers dressed as witches performed a dance, and then we cut a cake and shared it with the audience.
