Publisher's Plea

Not for general sale -- get it for a friend, get it from a friend. Which means, recommend us to those friends! Please do not copy the text of this zine. It IS a zine, not a circuit story, and The Nut Hatch has to get rid of the copies we have printed so as to break even and allow us to print yet more zines -- your your pleasure. If you copy this zine for your friend, and she passes it on to all her friends, pretty soon everyone has a pirated copy and no one will come to us for one. In the long run, only YOU get hurt, because we'll go broke and stop doing zines. Many thanks for your help! --Kath


It is the first story in the Affairs of the Heart series by Kathy Keegan:


From 1990 flyer: "Following a vicious vendetta, Bodie and Doyle are thrust into the world of formula car racing and male modelling [sic]. A story of broken dreams and of love."

From the Editorial

Some of you (and you know who you are I) have been waiting six months to read this book... you have it in your hands at last and I hope very much that you will enjoy what you read. This is a story that grew and grew, and didn't want to stop growing. It was intended originally to appear in the third issue of CMH -- but you can see by the length of the text presented here, how impossible it would have been to present it under that cover... Needless to say, the third and final part of Jane's Zax epic, MAGICKAL, has run l-o-n-g, and with this book running away also, you'd have had a CMH #3 that was about 250pp and extremely expensive. Because of this, it was decided to do this book as a zine-novel. I want to thank the people who put me on the right track (pun intended) as to the ins and outs of Formula racing cars...I did my research and I think it shows.


A CI5-based Bodie/Doyle novel in which Doyle quits after gay porn photographs of him, taken while he was kidnapped and drugged, are distributed and cause a bureaucratic backlash. He becomes a model while his relationship with Bodie, still in CI5, evolves. Cowley, meanwhile, also has feelings for Doyle. [1]
