Half You, Half Me is a gen Star Trek: TOS and Starsky and Hutch fanzine. Half of the content is Starsky and Hutch and half is Star Trek:TOS. Fans could purchase the sections separately or the whole thing. The Starsky & Hutch-only version was called Half You and the Star Trek-only version was called Half Me.

An ad in Datazine said it was looking for submissions that had "no death or permanent injury to main characters and no overt S/H or K/S please." A later ad in the same zine for issue #2 said, "No '/', no S/H or K/S..."

A similar zine is Don't Give Up On Us.

Issue 1: Reactions and Reviews

See reactions and reviews for Whom Death Could Not Part.
[Homecoming]: ...it's a look at Starsky's return to a home he once knew. The boys escort a prisoner back to New York and Starsky's past is opened up to them. A mispent youth, a brother whose anger outweighs his love, and a mother who just wants her boys to get along. Unfortunately, Hutch is put into the middle of it when he is thrown into the neighborhood full force. Starsky makes his choice, but will blood win above partnership?[1]
[zine]: This is the S&H half of an S&H/ST (no, not like that) zine. Before making any comments on individual stories, I would like to congratulate Lucy and Cheryl for having the guts to put out a second zine, after the problems with The Conspiracy. What’s even better to see is that this zine is substantially better than the first – there are several different authors represented (this is what happened to Southern fandom) and the layout is nice, clear, and single-space. As for the stories… “Last Streetlight’ had an interesting idea, but needed a more serious edit; there are pacing problems in spots. I did like the title illo, a nice mood pice, and the fact that Liz gave Sweet Alice both a past and a future. ‘Aftershocks’ by the editors, was, I think the most worthwhile piece in the zine. It shows the one thing that was left out of “The Fix”—Hutch decided for himself that he wanted off the heroin. ‘Homecoming’ had a good edit and it shows. The idea isn’t a new one – S&H go visit Starsky’s mother and Nick – but it’s handled well and the interfamilial tension is sensitive and believable. I find the Standard Irish Cop a little less believable, but he’s a minor character… Nick is his usual loudmouthed, chicken-hearted self. All in all for $3.50 + postage, this is a good zine… or half-a-zone, or whatever. I enjoyed it. [2]
[zine]: A year ago, Lucy Cribb and Cheryl Maier published The Conspiracy, perhaps one of the worst zines in this or any other fandom. They took negative reviews, private and public ridicule, and financial loss. That would have been enough to drive anyone to despair. But there is a strong driving force in this fandom and a love of the characters which provides a determination in the face of overwhelming odds. ‘Half You, Half Me’ is the result of the love that these ladies have for fandom in general and for Starsky and Hutch specifically and the disire to see the characters continue in fanfic. ‘Half You, Half Me’ is riddled with editorial problems (more pov changes than in Trace Elements) and less than perfect writing (standard problems with new or undisciplined writers)… but it’s so much better than its predecessor that the work and the improvement deserve more than a passing glance. I could scream about the unnecessary white space, but the reasonable price of the zine takes all the wind out of the that sail. I could complain about non-matching type faces and the differing sizes of print, but that’s trivial. ‘The Last Streetlight’ has a its mood set by the opening illustration by Debbie Milanian of an empty, dark, lonely street. A strange picture at first glance, but a good lead-in to the story. As Melanie said in her review of Strange Justice, Starsky tends to be the logical choice for strange and unusual forces. In ‘Streetlight,’ it’s dreams – vivid, real, and all coming true. When he dreams of killing Hutch, Starsky runs – blind and scared. While the constant shift of pov disturbed my reading and the pacing of the story was uneven, the idea is good; one I hadn’t read fifteen times before and features Sweet Alice, one of my favorite minor characters. ‘Whom Death Could Not Part’ presents many problems, the least being the fact that it’s a death story. I rather like the idea of S&H being together forever in whatever lies beyond this life… but I have my doubts that this story is how S&H will meet their end. The Starsky here is not the Starsky that I saw in the aired series, especially the Starsky from “The Psychic.” Don’t make an established character do or say something out of line with his established character, or if you must, give him good solid reasons why. I wish Kari had expounded further on why Starsky reacted the way he did. ‘Aftershocks,’ with all it’s faults (two pov changes on the very first page), is my favorite in the zine. Hutch, after “The Fix” and Starsky trying despartley to hold them together. It’s worth reading and re-reading. ‘Snow Wars’ is a piece of fluff that allows S&H to frolic in the snow. It’s not great literature, but a nice change of pace after ‘Aftershocks.’ However, I kept looking for the girl. Misuse of the word ‘blonde’ irritates me as much as ‘alright.’ ‘On the Other Hand’ is an interesting explantation of the teaser of ‘Captain Dobey, You’re Dead.’ The story needed a strong editor and some pruning, but it’s still fun. ‘Homecoming’ gets high marks. It’s the best story to date by these ladies. Paula’s hand as editor is clearly visible. This story is so much an improvement over The Conspiracy that if the degree of improvement continues at this same rate, Lucy and Cheryl might just walk away with a basketful of Huggys for their next endeavor. I liked the zine – at least the S&H half – and it was worth the money. [3]
I have... read HALF ME, HALF YOU and thought it mediocre. [4]
