Here is an updated list of episode guides in issues of Epi-Log magazine. For those that do not know, Epi-Log is a magazine devoted to doing episode guides. The quality of the guides varies quite a bit depending on who writes the synopses. Some guides have been known to have errors. They do list all the episodes and usually give the original air dates. People looking for lots of information on a show will probably not be interested in them but they are useful for keeping track of which episodes one has seen or has yet to see. Epi-Log magazines can be found at Sci-Fi conventions and also at some comic book stores.
They can also be gotten from the publisher:

Star Tech,
P.O. Box 456, Dunlap, TN 37327, USA
(their catalog is $1 and requests for information need a SASE [self addressed stamped envelope]).

The left half is a by issue listing and the right half is an alphabetical listing. A # after the name means it is a list of episodes rather than a guide.
