[zine]: One enters this compilation of wondrous and complex stories through a full-color cover that is as diverse and multifaceted as the contents. At first glance it is a montage featuring Kirk looking upward toward the stars with an almost plaintive expression. One side of his face is in complete shadow, very dramatic and intriguing. On his left is Spock and on his right, McCoy – both in profile. When you can pull your eyes away from the triad, you see that an eagle is superimposed over the whole image, its wings lifted high and encircling the three figures. Stars and planets are interspersed throughout, even an image I recognize as a star nursery as first captured by the Hubble space telescope. All are very, very fitting representations, and the composition is stunning. But that isn’t all – in a column to the left are the faces of many who have passed through the lives of Kirk, Spock and McCoy. How could one not open to what lies inside?

This zine does not claim to be K/S, but strong friendship. Don’t be misled by the disclaimer because every story resonates with the love and unselfish devotion that defines the relationship between Kirk and Spock regardless of whether or not it has been consummated. All the fine moments we love so much in first time scenarios are here. Our imagination, if we find it necessary to see them take the next step, can easily close the very narrow gap between love and passion. I ask you this, though: would you truly be a committed fan of K/S if there were only lust involved and not love? The love is here in both quality and quantity.

All in all, this is one of the best collections of stories I’ve ever seen. Suzan Lovett has, through her extraordinarily talented art and words, provided a solid foundation for the legend that is Kirk and Spock and deserves our highest praise. Accolades are due [Kathy Resch] for bringing these classics to us all in one elegant package. Don’t miss it! [1]
