"What could destroy Death? What memories, after three thousand years, still have the power to shatter Methos’ soul?"
From a Flyer
"Reflections" by Lynn Montgomery, a slash Highlander novel, will be available in February, 1998. A new Highlander: The Series slash fan novel, offering an alternative history to the current sixth season. The story takes place after "The Modern Prometheus" and "Archangel" never happened. What could destroy Death? What memories, after three thousand years, still have the power to shatter Methos' soul? Joe's efforts to repair Duncan's and Methos' wounded friendship crash as they reach Egypt and Methos is confronted with his former life. Not just his years as Death, but Death's actual destruction, haunts Methos as he is faced with the memories and landscape of three millennia before. As Joe and Duncan struggle to understand the motivations of Death-and what could possibly destroy that confidence and persona-Methos must struggle to regain that confidence and reestablish his very identity. All he has known is called into question, including his very ability to love. His only hope: to go back in time, confront those memories, and travel the same road he'd traveled three millennia before. With Joe and Duncan as his audience, Methos weaves the tale, reliving as he does so the destruction of Death and how the love of two very different men brought him back from the edge. But as he spins his tale-and tries to rebuild his life-he has to meet Duncan's judgement head on, and Duncan must learn to accept Kronos in the role of a hero; friendship and identity hang in the balance. Reflections is an adult novel containing graphic violence and sex, including male/male pairings (Methos/Kronos, Methos/Caspian and Methos/Jakata, an original character). If this kind of story isn't your cup of tea, please do not order. This zine will not knowingly be sold to anyone under the age of 18. Illustrated by Leah Rosenthal, F. Cade, C. P. Foster, and Maryann Jorgensen with a full color cover. Approximately 241,000 words, 281 pages. Final Price: $24.00, postage included.
