Publisher's Thank You

From the zine: "A word from the publisher: I'd like to end this zine by sincerely thanking you for buying my first ever slash zine. I'd also like to thank some other very important people: My deepest thanks go to my loving and supportive husband Alexander. Special thanks also to my beloved friends Petra, Kerstin, Alex and Bine. Without them, this zine surely wouldn't have been published. Best wishes from Germany, Mona."

[zine]: Quite possibly the best multi-media slash zine in existance! Most m-m zines annoy me, since often there will be ten stories in a zine from wildly divergent fandoms, varying widely in quality. Usually there will be only one story I'm remotely interested in - sort of a waste of money, it feels like. Now, *this* zine has *30* stories, all of them marvelous, from well-known Slash authors like Arduinna Finn, T'mar, Elizabeth Holden, Anne Higgins, Flamingo, Elessar, Brenda Antrim, Lianne Burwell, Jennifer Lyon, Jane Mailander, Maiden Wyoming, Richel Darrah, and Amanda Warrington (reads like a who's-who of Slash fandom, doesn't it?), to new authors with whom I'm most impressed! There are 16 different fandoms represented, with a few xovers and A/Us. There *are* 8 'Professionals' stories, but the rest are rather balanced. Oh, and some amazing artwork in this, too! An absolutely exquisite zine! [1]
[zine]: This is simply one of the *best* multimedia slash zines I ever read.

NtH has a multitude of stories from a wide range of fandoms, everything from MASH and Big Valley to X-files, OAT, Starsky /Users/lizabethngockel/Desktop/Screen Shot 2018-08-23 at 2.23.08 PM.pngand Hutch, Sentinel, I could go on and on. It even has a marvelous Pros/ST:TOS crossover. Includes such authors as Richel Darrah, Lianne Burwell, Jane Mailander, Cassandra, Anne Higgens, Flamingo... This is one zine I consistently press upon anyone and everyone who asks me about zines.

Just Buy It! [2]
