Reactions and Reviews

When Avon discovers Vila masturbating in his hiding place on Xenon Base, he is lured into reactivating their sexual relationship. A densely written story, tracking both men's internal analyses of the situation - in line with the title, there is no dialogue at all. The lavish use of metaphor is sometimes apt and sometimes a little odd - for example, Avon sees Vila's love as 'a parasol for his soul' - but Craig is trying for some interesting and unusual effects, even though she occasionally goes right over the top.
