Reactions and Reviews: Issue 1

This very slight but pleasant all-season anthology zine is mostly poetry, with a few short stories. Contributors are from places as varied as England and Russia. Jones contributes "When Tomorrow Comes," in which, in the aftermath of an explosion, Vincent finds that his life has changed beyond all recognition...and yet hardly changed at all, since love is still there for him, with Diana. The ending provides a surprising twist. In Classic "Birds and Bees," Jackie Kapke sets Vincent the uncomfortable chore of explaining, to a group of tunnel children, where babies come from. Nan Dibble's fourth-season-based "Everything I Do" has Vincent musing, in his journal, on the distinction between being willing to die to protect one's beloved...and killing for her in the name of love.[1]

Reactions and Reviews: Issue 2

Many people contributed to this small all-season zine. Amber James’ brief tale “And that Should Be” tells of a future post-disaster world where the survivors have endured because of their special blood type...very special. “Out of the Darkness” by Janice Keenan is an account of Vincent and Catherine’s love and marriage. Jacquelyn Kapke’s “The Rescue” is a witty, lighthearted story of Vincent and Catherine’s plot to ease the fears of tunnel tyke Marie, who’s terrified of Vincent. In “Mirrors,” Jane Madell spins a tale of a gift from Kristopher to Vincent and Catherine: a magic mirror that shows you, not how you look, but how others see you. And in Gloria Jones’ “Above—and Beyond,” Vincent, while wearing a latex mask, is nearly arrested for shoplifting in a mall he’s ventured into to buy lacy undies for Diana in a Victoria’s Secret. And if you believe that, I have this lovely tract of swampland....[2]
