Reactions and Reviews

Classic adult zine featuring the fiction of Terri Milliman, Barbara Hill, Andrea Dumasius, Lynette Combs, M. Sue Waugh, Trisha Kehoe. Mostly consummation/first time stories with fairly predictable V/C sex. No surprising discoveries; many more vignettes than developed stories. Not all the content is explicit sex. Two vignettes-Hill's “Shades of Gray” and Kehoe's “Just an Ordinary Man” present V/C disquiet at finding their respective gray hairs. In Kehoe's “Curiosity, Etc.,” Vincent is tempted...by Catherine trying to untangle a ball of yarn. Some stories are all-purpose Classic. Others take off from different 1st or 2nd season episodes. Combs' “A Gentle Reign,” for instance, takes off from “To Reign in Hell,” and Hill's “I Felt You Go” assumes a sexual aftermath to “The Watcher.” The only story with any reference to 3rd season events, Milliman and Hill's “The Other Side of the River,” presents Vincent with a chance to recover Catherine from death...if he's willing to accept that he deserves her love. Andrea Dumasius' “A Treasure, A Promise,” is a frame story that flashes back from lovers V & C to the eight months between C's return Above, in the pilot, and V's first venturing to her balcony. Some of the writing in the zine is a bit rough-in style, not sexual content: we get, for instance, “the heart-rendering [sic] tenderness of his gaze” and “trying to hold in the giggle that irrationally sought escape”: do rational giggles stay home?-but this is compensated for by the very good artwork (some nude, and frontal) by Inez Brown, Pam Martin, Teri Milliman, Rosemarie Hauer, Sandy C. Shelton. Also poetry by Gloria De Leon, Trisha Kehoe, Pat Leslie, and Peter McWilliams. [1]
