In the 2002 issue of No Award (#11), Joseph Major wrote, "Canadian fanzine fandom, after a period in the nineties of vigor, seemed to evaporate...Fortunately we are seeing the stirrings of revival, with Murray Moore's Azrtec Blue leading the pack."

In 2002 Murray Moore published Old Toys, a fanthology of the writings of Taral Wayne. He later released the fanzines Green Stuff for FAPA, and Dinosaur Spit for SAPS.
