Reactions and Reviews: Issue 3

Slash anthology multi media with a Due South story (Forget me not - no author name). Poorly received. The one Due South story contained was not actually slash. Not recommended. Also has other shows, but I do not have a copy of this zine to report. [1] [2]

  • Such a Special Man by Theresa Evans (Due South) ("Detective Ray Vecchio knew that he was in trouble: the blood from the wound in his leg was the blood from the wound in his leg was showing no sign of letting up and he was starting to feel dizzy. "Ray... Ray7" came the distant, insistent tone of Benton Fraser. "What...?" Ray asked, his tone that of a belligerent child, although his voice was slightly slurred... a fact that was not lost on the Canadian. "We've got to stop the bleeding." Benton said as he continued his frantic efforts to loosen the bonds that held him. He was growing desperately concerned over his friend's pallor and the sweeping lassitude that he could see seeping in to replace the lost blood.")

  1. ^ That this fan had comments on the story, but did not have access to the rest of this zine probably means another fan copied the due South story for them, something fans who bought multi-media zines often did for other fans to "save" them from having to buy a zine with other content that did not interest them.
