Reactions and Reviews
Rhythm and Blues is a collection of short stories (some almost novels in their own right!) following on from the events in the earlier zine. They follow Richard and Sam through the good times and the bad as they adjust to living together and coping with the media pressure that two such notable figures would attract. Like the first zine R&B is seriously sexy (boy, these two guys are hot), but it also funny, poignant, and ultimately so enjoyable that, like it predecessor, it got an immediate second reading. With lots of pages and small type with the minimum of frills, R&B is a very good value, solid slash experience that no zine collection should be without. This is a wonderful zine and instead of going on about it (which I could do ), I will say only this BUY THIS ZINE, SHOW YOU HAVE TASTE OR REGRET IT FOREVER. Hmm., do you think I've got my point over enough there?
The sequel to Fumbling Towards Ecstasy is very good, though I was a bit shocked at something that appears in Kimble's character. I wouldn't want a Pros/ Fugitive crossover... My response is that I don't like [crossovers], whether serious or funny. (I'm not overly keen on humorous fandom stories anyway). I prefer my pairs to be exclusive - I don't like threesomes in their own fandoms and certainly don't want them with characters from elsewhere, even my favourite characters from other fandoms.
