Reactions and Reviews

Here's another technically multimedia zine that in fact is almost all B7. The only date given on it is the date of the con itself, but since con reports are included in the zine, it must have been compiled afterwards. Was it perhaps sent out later, as a followup, to the con members?

As far as I know none of the other Scorpio cons had souvenir fiction zines, which is a pity, as the contents of this one are very good.

Hmm-- since it seems very unlikely that this will be reprinted, I wonder if the authors would consent to web archiving?? [1]
