Reactions and Reviews

cover
In appearance, this is a typical Judith Seaman zine - A5, fairly flimsy cover, no artwork apart from a small portrait of Avon on the cover. The contents are neatly typed and I didn't notice any mistakes in spelling or punctuation. Judith's zines are always good value for money, and this is no exception.

This is a story about the free traders who ply the space lanes on the borders of Federation space, picking up cargoes where they can, living on a shoestring and occasionally helping rebel groups.....

One thing I have always liked in Judith's writing is that it feels like science fiction. She has a good sense of background, the spaceports feel real and so do the ships. It's a bleak and gritty reality where rebels may actually do more harm than good, but that is Judith's style and she always has sound reasoning behind her plots...... [sections snipped] [1]
