On September 04, 1995, a legendary show was born. Xena: Warrior Princess gave birth to the Xenaverse, a fandom that became a powerhouse group of people from around the world who would unite as one. This is the Xenaverse.

This is our story. Join us as we celebrate 25 Years of Xena: Warrior Princess, the show that changed lives forever and the fandom that set the standard for all other fandoms to follow! It has taken an Amazon Village to produce this extraordinary history of the Xenaverse, the fandom born at the birth of the internet. In this 25th Anniversary Edition, we have fifty-six authors who have written sixty-six chapters outlining the evolution of the Xenaverse. There are seventy-seven fan-contributed stories of lives changed forever. From fan fiction writers blossoming into published authors, interviews with artists and videographers, webmasters creating sites in the new digital frontier, filmmakers getting their start in the Xenaverse and going on to produce award-winning shows of their own, LGBTQI embracing and their allies, and greater good endeavors that have raised millions for charity…all from one incredible fandom.
