From a zine flyer: "A story of betrayal and friendship, loss and love. Clark's journey from boy to man takes a detour when another survivor of Krypton shows up in Smallville determined to take over Clark's life, to force him to fulfill Jor-El's planned "destiny" for his son. In the face of such a force, strength and support come from an unlikely source... strength, support, friendship and much more."
Alex — First and foremost, a huge thank you to Chris for the challenge and for turning this partnership into such an awesome experience. <wg> Also thank you to our betas and victims, Tehomet, Sherri, galahav, A.J. and Marita. To Dovya, for agreeing to publish our baby and putting up with our questions, doubts and general craziness. And last, but definitely not least, to Suzan Lovett for making our dream come true and letting us have one of her fabulous masterpieces for the cover of this zine.
Chris - What she said! And one more thank you to the M7 fandom around Ezra P. Standish which gave me a great friend, webmistress and writing-partner in Alex.I'd like to dedicate this story to my grandmother as it was the last story I told her about - I wished she could have seen the final product - and to my late cat Tammy, who certainly would have loved to lie on a Suzan Lovett cover.
Quick mention that this story is canon up to "Whisper"...
Very briefly, a sincere thank you to Alex and Chris for being two of the easiest people I've ever worked with - and, no, Chris, I'm not saying you're easy, just easy to work with!
Considering the three of us weren't just working from great distances but with three languages between us, it was a remarkably swift, efficient and, most of all, delightful experience working with these very talented authors. Their English is way better than either my German or my Portuguese.
And I want to add my thanks to Suzan Lovett for being incredibly generous in contributing "Red", the gorgeous cover.Hope you enjoy! Go. Read.
