Ika is an author, vidder and editor active in the Blake's 7 fandom. She was most active in the early 2000s.


Ika's writing is known for its unusual and highly original slant on the B7 universe. She was prominent in introducing queer and left-wing readings of the series.[1][2] She often views canon through the lens of realistic original characters, such as Federation officer Siv Holland. Her work frequently features Blake, often paired with Avon. She is also known for writing femslash, a relatively rare genre in this fandom.[2] Well-known stories include:

Her work has been published in the fanzines, I, Mutoid, Sleer as Folk, Trooper Orac's Fantastic Plastic Army and TTBA, as well as on the Freedom City mailing list. Some of her writing is archived online at Archive of Our Own, Hermit Library, Hip Deep in Heroes and TTBA.


Ika co-edited the femslash zine Sleer as Folk (2002).
