Reactions and Reviews

Spock resigns after "killing" Kirk by ignoring his own foreknowledge of danger, and wanders off into the galaxy into a series of hellish lives, with Kirk's unintelligible voice pursuing him everywhere. A bit tedious; resolves as coma dreams from a head injury. [1]
My favourite story here is Teeth of the Lynx by Sheila Clark. This story is difficult to summarise without ruining its suspense for a reader - because it is very suspenseful. Suffice it to say that Jim is dead, Spock cannot go on without him; he resigns his commission and his very identity to live as a sort of space gypsy, on the very edge of existence. I also very much like The Test by Sheila Clark. Kirk and Spock, on a diplomatic mission to the planet Dren, are obliged to take the Drennan Test of Manhood to prove that Starfleet is strong and worthy of Dren's consideration. Of course the Boys pull through; but the trials they suffer are unpleasant mental ones; only their friendship can save them from death. [2]
