Bound Blintz is a series of three underground Starsky & Hutch slash stories by Susan.

The theme is bondage and consensual sex.

The first story may have had a cover that was the famous Starsky/brass bed poster, or fans were simply supposed to imagine the poster as the story's cover.


  • Bound Blintz (9 pages, "Title and house by Mary, Illustrated by brass bed poster") (February 5, 1982)
  • Revenge of the Bound Blintz (5 pages) (March 23, 1982)

The "Brass Bed" and These Stories

the Starsky/brass bed poster sold in the 1970s

Brass bed frames were a common decorating element in the United States in the 1970s and a brass bed was a prominent background fixture in Starsky & Hutch. Hutch's brass bed sat in his bedroom/living room in his canal-side cottage.

The brass bed theme in Starsky & Hutch fandom was also flamed by a well-known poster that was sold at the time, one that showed Starsky leaning on the headboard of a brass bed. Some fans comment upon a supposed pair of handcuffs that are shown in the photo. The title of "The Brass Bed" almost certainly is homage to this poster.

These Stories Framed by Their Time

Paula Smith, the author of the controversial story Surrender in the zine Strokes, notes that special acknowledgments go to a story called The Brass Bed, her story, Surrender's, inspiration:
Something slightly unusual about S&H lit is the relative commonness of prequels, sequels, and remakes or "missing scenes" for other S&H stories and the original episodes. Possibly this is because there are fewer stories to be told about two men in one city than about, say, a shipful of folks in a galaxy. The best known example of a story and its spinoffs may be "The Brass Bed" by Billie Fowler, which inspired both Donna McIntosh's "I Read It in the National Enquirer" (unpublished) and my own "Surrender" which in turn inspired Eileen Roy's "Fountain of Sorrow" and Cath A. Rine's "Right Between the Eyes"; three other unpublished stories on the same theme are "The Bound Blintz", "Revenge of the Bound Blintz" and "Bound Blintz: The Motion Picture", by an anonymous author.
