Publication History

I wrote this fic some ten years ago, and originally posted it to the Senfic mailing list. Later it was published as a print zine through Agent with Style. I am uploading it now as-is, including the author's notes, without edits or any alterations from the fic as originally posted. ~X-parrot, Feb. 6, 2009 [1]

Summary from the Author

My first RGB story, online for a little while, now zined. Sam Beckett Quantum Leaps into one Blair Sandburg, the partner of Jim Ellison, the Sentinel, and finds himself in hot water when the real Blair mysteriously disappears. Two years ago, two men vanished the same way, and never were found. Now Sam and Jim must find the men who used to be part of the Ghostbusters. Because Peter and Winston could be Blair's only hope - and because Sam might hold the key to saving Egon and Ray... Also exclusive to this zine is the followup story, Visitors: When the loft is haunted, Jim and Blair know who they're gonna call! [2]

Reactions and Reviews

I had had this recommended to me by more than one person on more than one occasion, so when I saw it lying there on the table in the dealer's room, it called to me, saying 'Buy me, buy me...' and I did not resist. It certainly gripped me enough that I stayed up to the wee small hours to finish it. It did twitter on a little too much (for me) about how deep friends all the friends were, and how anyone with good observational skills could see it (which I'm sure was one of the reasons so many people liked it) it just seemed a teensy bit belabouring the point for me. But it was a good crossovery crossover, no instant niceness or boring exposition, and some delicious moments and a couple of intriguing loose ends. The plot was good, tying in aspects of Quantum Leap and Real Ghostbusters in a nifty way. [3]
