Reacations and Reviews

This zine was on the all-B7 list, but as it turns out, it's multimedia: DW and B7. I have copies of #s 2 and 3, and got the title of the B7 story in #1 from the letters of comment in #2 (although they didn't say enough to make it clear what season it was -- only that it's *not* PGP). I don't know what was in #4.

The stories are pretty good. I was especially struck by the two post-Star One Blake stories in #3, which would have fit right into "What on Earth Happened to You?".

"The Exile" in #2 is confusing. The natural assumption is that it's about Cally, but the protagonist is never named, and so it could perhaps be some other Auron exiled for dissidence. The title page is a photo of someone I don't recognize. [1]
