Reactions and Reviews

I've had #2 of this zine for a while. Last year I saw one used copy of #1 at MediaWest, passed it up because it was overpriced, and then worried all year over whether I would ever see another one! This year, when I saw a copy at $8, I snapped it up-- only to find another in equally good condition for $3, and several more at $5. In other words, last year's scarce zine was all over the place this year. So it goes! You just never know what you'll find when you shop for used zines.

1, as it turns out, is not particularly memorable. Any story by Sheila Paulson is well worth reading, but this is not, IMO, one of her best. "The Woman Behind the Man," about Travis's wife, and "Pressure," told from Soolin's POV, are mildly interesting. #2 is much better, with at least two stories that have been reprinted elsewhere. The editorial in #2 indicated that the editors were planning a third issue, but as far as I know it was never published.

Both zines are very nicely produced, with clear, attractive layouts. [1]
