Strictly an Indulgence is a gen, slash and original fiction 276-page one-shot anthology. It has two sister zines: Over the Edge and Not In Your Wildest Dreams.

Original Focus

The zine was proposed as original fiction, but apparently gained much media content.

From a 1993 flyer:

STRICTLY AN INDULGENCE - an ORIGINAL fiction zine open to just about anything and everything. I'll accept stories on the basis of pure personal enjoyment. Anything goes. Your own characters, media characters, mythological figures, I really do mean it...ANYTHING. Alternative writing styles welcomed, story fragments, adult stories, slash, whatever! I'm shooting for a late 1993 print, so the deadline is open for now.

Al tells him the bus originally had an accident with a drunk driver and that the doctor Sam has leaped into saved the life of the crazed teen. Ziggy is convinced that Sam must let the boy die or he will later kill several women! NOTES: I wrote this story after I had a dream in which I was Sam Beckett chasing after a teenager.
