A 12-page (9 pages of writing), one-shot apazine published in May 1965 by Lee Hoffman for FAPA mailing 111 and APA-F. The report discusses the "Epic of Gilgamesh". She discusses the plot of the epic story, drawing connections with Biblical stories and other myths and folklore. This includes discussion of how both such stories would have evolved over the centuries, and common themes, such as hairy men, red-colored men, the introduction of sex, and blaming everything on women. She clearly expresses a desire to carry on this type of publication, with more on Gilgamesh or "some other speculations which happen to interest me", but apparently did not follow up with this project.
