SLAYSU is an explicit adult het multifandom zine anthology which contains stories by multiple authors.

SLAYSU stands for "So Like and Yet So Unalike."

A continuation of this zine is Conflicting Impulses.

The Same Sex Stories

The editors have an addition to their ad for "Slaysu" in Universal Translator #17, one that offers information about their slash stories. Fans were invited to send them a SASE for more information:

"We have some stories available only on a request basis and only to legal adults. This is because many people have strange views on homosexual (or any type of sexual) relationships. If you are offended by such relationships or by stories about such relationships, these stories are not for you. These stories are short, graphic and all in fun. They are not meant to answer serious questions. The whole purpose is to offer an alternative to the ordinary."

Some of those stories:
