Reactions and Reviews

Mirage by Jean Graham has a nice balance of characters in a PGP setting. Tarrant gets a story of his own, plus some love interest, & figures in 22% of this strongly plotted 191p. zine. Very well-written, one of the best PGP fan novels to come down the pike in a LONG while. It passed my own acid test which means that I read it more than once & enjoyed it both times! Stories originally appeared in B7 Complex, now with 70 additional pages, spiral bound, illos by Walsh, Boguslawski, & Williams. [3]
