Reactions and Reviews: Issue 2

Despite a poor printing job, ONE TREK MIND is an enjoyable zine with lots of short- short stories, poetry and cartoons. The artwork is nominal but all right. The one long story, "Gift of Grief" by Elaine Pizzo, was fairly interesting, and although it made some attempts to confuse you, the ending was predictable. Due to the brevity of the stories, OTM can be read quickly and with much pleasure. [1]
