Reactions and Reviews: Issue 12
There are, however, several stories I should like to recommend. First in #12, you'll find 'I've Got Friends,' a short warning against super critical reviews, and 'Nemuzuth: The Juggler, a fascinating novelette that has to be read to be appreciated. I look forward to reading more of Elise Grasso's work. Here is someone who has gone through an awful lot of trouble to create believable alien culture. Also included is 'The Swords of Revlon,' by P.R. David, a funny sword and sorcery story that sounds like something I've read before... 
A fan comments on issues #12 and #13:
There are certainly a lot of good zines out there that I don't even know about. Tetrumbriant is one of them... Tet is a general zine with ST, SF and occasional stories from UFO and Space: 1999. The humor has a nice sting to it, the poetry is good to excellent, and the short-shorts are very much to the point. The artwork suffers a bit from the printing process, as on occasion, does the text, but what good mimeo zine doesn't have an occasional problem of this sort. For some odd reason, I find it difficult to direct specific criticisms toward any of the stories, so all I can say is that this zine has to be read to be understood.
Tetrumbriant 13 (v.4 no.1) was published in May 1977 and contains 58 pages.

Reactions and Reviews: Issue 13
Not Star Trek, hardly even SF, TET reads a lot like a typical college experimental fiction magazine. Like such a publication, the contents may occasionally be very good, but they will never be quite what the general reader expects. 'Mission Tomorrow,' a UFO story and 'Reflections' are based on other TV shows, although some of 'Reflections' sounds like it was translated from the French -- the odd vocabulary, the passive voice. 'Outcast' is probably the best of the zine, or at least the best trek story, as it is the only trek story in the zine. An early Sarek/Amanda story, it gives a rather probably explanation why they left for Vulcan rather than stay on Earth. Its only unfortunate aspect is the characterization of everybody, save Sarek, as 20th-century New Yorkers. 
Read 'Ordeal,' a short by Winston Howlett that has his usual wicked twist at the end. Next is 'Outcast,' by Courtney Taylor, another view of Amanda's problems surrounding her marriage to Sarek. Painful, but quite believable. On the other hand, if it is a chiller you want, read 'Portrait of a Future,' by Priscilla Marco. It concerns of possible solution to the problem of racial friction. I recommend this zine for those who like to stretch their minds around interesting concepts expressed in often unconventional ways. I consider Tet a welcome addition to my skimpy zine library.
