Blake's Barf Bag is a gen humor Blake's 7 anthology. It is letter size, ii + 80 pp. (incl. inside covers), yellow card covers, black comb binding, and originally came with a small paper bag labelled "Blake's Barf Bag."

From Zine Scene: "Chock full of Vogon poetry, filks, ultra shorts, cartoons, and other forms of fan madness. We poke fun at everything from Star Trek & the Pepsi Generation to DW & B&TB, but it's mostly B7 and ALL enjoyable."

Reactions and Reviews

These I'm not so fond of. I love P.N. Elrod's serious fiction, both fannish (her Avon On-Line zines are excellent) and pro (her assorted vampire novels), but her Vogon humor doesn't do a lot for me. IMO the best thing is Renae Ransdorf's wacky Monkees-style AU, reprinted from Standard by Several. [1]
