[zine]: A collection of stories by a single author. There's one story in the zine with B7 content, but it's a three-way crossover between The Professionals, Escape From New York and Blake's 7, and the focus is on Bodie and Doyle. The story is adequate but nothing special, as is the zine as a whole. Don't bother unless you want the other fandoms in the zine, you're a completist, or you can pick it up for a couple of quid. The other fandoms listed are Robin of Sherwood, UFO, Houston Knights and Saracen. Wilder Justice - Merlyn (Sequel to a Pros story in the first volume. Bodie and Doyle, both vampires, have been stored cryogenically and have now been revived in the Dome in an AU version of Blake's 7. They meet up with the Outsiders Blake, Avon and Vila, and help to overthrow President Sleer.) [1]
