Reactions and Reviews: Issue 2

This zine contains short stories and poems all written by Linda Wood. 6 of the items are Trek-orientated, the rest are based on other roles played by Leonard Nimoy, from Zombies of the Stratosphere to today. There is perhaps a little more poetry in the zine than I personally would prefer, but this is more than made up for by the quality of the stories. Linda is a very able writer and tells a good story; four of the items won either first or second place in various convention fiction competitions. Although it is not one of the competition winners. I think my favourite story is the one based on The Hitch-hiker (from The Way I Feel, one of Nimoy's song albums). It follows the hitch-hiker from when he steals the car, checks through all the things he has stolen... and has a chilling end that leaves you feeling "it serves him right!" Well worth getting. [1]
