From the editorial:
Welcome to our second issue of End of the Rainbow. We really do appreciate all the support you, dear readers and writers, give us in this labor of love. And we do love zinesl

This is our newest multi-media title, into which we have rolled all of our older multi-media titles - Compadres (buddy and team shows). Ouch! (hurt/comfort stories), and A Small Circle of Friends (recycled stories). So, as you might guess, we invite buddy and team stories, hurt/comfort stories, and recycled stories to fill up these pages!

You have a great cross-section of fics here, too! Some sci-fi, and some action adventure, westerns, WWII, and more!

Many thanks to Kimber for the medical advice, and to Sue N. for helping me to focus on someone besides Eliot... for a second, anyway.
