Reactions and Reviews
Idylls 8 is an all classic Trek issue, with a broodingly gorgeous Kirk (drawn by Linda Baker) on the cover for all the Kirkophiles out there. (Sigh...) I have two stories in it that I hope you will enjoy, but what I'm really excited about are a story by Alison Wilson, and a vignette by Ann Zewen, who also edits the zine.
"A Clean Break" by Alison Wilson is a young Kirk and Carol Marcus story written with such understanding, it's easy to assume Alison has been through a similar situation. The story is written in the first person, and though I'm usually put off by that particular treatment, it is perfect for this story. I'm not the greatest reviewer, I read with my heart, not my head, so all I can say is this story deserves to be read. It's special. The vignette, "Intermezzo" by Ann Zewen is, oddly enough, also about Kirk and Marcus, although it takes place many years later, after the events of ST:TWOK Not quite four pages long, "Intermezzo" feels just right.The other stories in the issue include several lighthearted romances, a view into Spock's childhood, and one possible outcome of the events which took place on the Genesis planet.
"Limits" by Alison Wilson. OK,I guess, but something about this story didn't sit right. Sam leaps into Ken Hutchinson, to keep him from having an affair with his partner's girlfriend and to get Starsky to ditch the woman.On QL+(S)+(MV)+(ROS)+(S+H)+(ST) ad infinitum= ....Oh Boy!
