[zine]: This zine was first published in 1985, and it's a classic. The novella 'Mercs' by the almighty Pam Rose was a joy, with its pursuit of the 'Bodie gets amnesia' plot. There were several other stories, many angsty, some hilarious, that gripped me as well. The story "The Need" by Vicki Hauk was an angsty vampire story that is just too compelling! I didn't want it to end, and hope there's a sequel out there somewhere. A good read.
A recent zine that everyone should get and read is DISCOVERED ON A ROOFTOP. It's marvelous -- I can't say enough about it. There wasn't one bad story in the lot, and some, like ACE OF SPADES, MERCS, and THE INVENTION OF GUNPOWDER -- were superior. THE NEED was a delightfully erotic, moving "vampire" story -- and ODDS ON was a terrific "sequel" to the "straight" Brian Clemens story of how B&D met. And, the ARTWORK -- suitable for framing, all of it I know a lot of you don't care whether your stories have "pictures" with them, or not, but I shamelessly admit to being a B/D ART JUNKIE. Drool-making!
