Reactions and Reviews

Totally dedicated to Scotty. Hurrah! Two good stories. "A Wee Drop 'O Scotch" where Scott's heart melts for a wee lassie from home, and "Double, Double, Toil & Trouble" -- mischief aplenty with Nikkee being an unwilling [rook] in Mibla Kangless' strange sense of fun. Very amusing, especially Shayne McCormack's story and considering this is so early in fanzine tales, they still make good reading. [1]
