Reactions and Reviews

This is cliched, but a mercy after most of the zine. Avon is captured, and sees the ghost of the dead Blake, or is it? Grade C+ [1]
Another Avon story. He's hospitalized after GP. Is it Blake he's talking to or not... [2]
Avon is in a cell PGP and either hallucinates Blake or is rescued by him. I'm not that much of a fan of the open-ending, although I understand that's the point of this fic. It's nicely written. Blake is kind without being out of character, and it has a good Avon too. Gentle, pleasant. [3]
