Staked Blake

As you could probably guess from the title, Staked Blake is an all-crossover Blake's 7 and Buffy The Vampire Slayer zine.

How did this come about? Kathryn Andersen, the editor says: Once upon a time, back in June 1999, when the folks on the lysator Blake's 7 list were discussing silly casting ideas, Steve Rogerson suggested the Buffy cast to play various roles, such as:

Then Steve wondered if Willow wouldn't be better as Avon, since she was a computer whiz. Then mistral suggested that Willow was Avon's long-lost daughter. And then people started discussing crossovers. Then mistral daydreamed that a zine would be lovely. Then I volunteered to edit one.

The contents of Staked Blake are:

Heart Attack by Steve Rogerson

When the crew of the Liberator encounter a temporal warp, history is not what they expected.

Daddy's Girl by Jacqueline Thijsen

Spike has a treat planned for Drusilla. He wants Willow to do a spell. But what happens if a spectre from the past isn't from the past at all?

Thicker Than Water by Ellynne G.

It was just going to be a simple transaction, something for Avalon's people. But when Avon encounters a mysterious woman and takes off, Cally and Vila won't let it lie.
It was just going to be a simple day for the Slayerettes; talk over musty books, and slay vampires.
But what has Angel worried?
Why is Willow ill?
And what does her mysterious long-lost cousin want?

Illustrated by Kathryn Andersen, Fliss Davis and Jem Dixon. 85,000 words, 94 pages, parchment paper covers.
