Surprises is a gen 9-page Blake's 7 novel by Linda A. Knights. It was originally in Sherwood Tunnels #6.


This zine is part of a series of mini-zines, each with a story that has been published previously in another zine. Each mini-zine has a full-color photo cover.


Blake looked up from the file. He’d been conscious, for some time, of a presence standing at his elbow. Now, unable - and unwilling - to tolerate the silent scrutiny a moment longer, he whirled... and found Avon.

The computer tech jumped almost guiltily, retreating a few steps and pretending a sudden interest in a jagged piece of metal on a console. His hand ran down the rough edge. “I can’t help wondering why this hasn’t repaired itself,” he mused out loud. “It would have seemed that, by now, Zen would have had ample time to have attended to something so minor.”

For a moment Blake considered accusing Avon of standing there and staring at him but the whole idea was so ludicrous that he immediately dropped it. Another of the crew, perhaps, but Avon? Obviously it had simply been his own active imagination. “Perhaps Zen has more important things to do then attend to something that is only a comfort measure.”
