Self-Search is a gen Blake's 7 novel by Margaret Scroggs.

Self-Search was originally published in two parts (unknown date), then in one single volume (February 1991).

The single volume says it is a "New Edition" and both parts are included in one zine. Under the chapter "Bait" a note from the author reads: "For clarification of some passages in this and subsequent stories, the reader is referred to the book "Blake's Seven" by Terry Nation and Fred Hoyle". So, novels? collections of stories?

Reactions and Reviews

I managed to get Scroggs post PG series which starts with FIGHT BACK 1, 2. It goes SELF SEARCH 1,2, DOUBLE IMAGE, BLOODLINE and FRAME UP. (keeper). These are really just one long novel and should be read in order. Does anyone know if there's more? I just stayed up to 1:30 A.M. last night finishing the series. She has tie-ins to other stories she's written. The character Anselm is in it. I remember that story "For Jenna" from HORIZON 11 and have even kept that issue. Another character is from a story in HORIZON 6 which is long gone. # 6 is one of those Blakeless zines. I don't even remember the teeny weeny bit part in her story where Avon meets the clone. It's not necessary to read these two stories, especially the one in 6, to understand the series. I do remember that "For Jenna" was good, so if you have 11 you might consider rereading that before you start the series of small novelettes. I wouldn't go out and get the zine on purpose, though.
