The cover for this issue [...] is probably the best example I've ever seen of obeying the letter of the law while thoroughly evading its spirit. "No exposed genitalia," I said in my rules for SB covers, and lo and behold, Agnes ups and offers me the use of a stunningly gorgeous piece of artwork, and, well, it's got no exposed genitalia...[snipped] it was too wonderful to turn down as a special premiere treat, I knew I wouldn't be comfortable reading a zine with [this] cover on the bus, which is the real litmus test for SB covers, and if I wouldn't be comfortable—I'm pretty brash, as some of you know—I could imagine how others might feel.
[snipped]For the record, Agnes got Suzan Lovett's permission for the limited reprinting of this piece as an apa cover. I won't use any fan artwork without such permission. Commercial pictures from whatever source I consider fair game; if we were going to quibble over such appropriation, we wouldn't be writing fanfic, would we?
