I'm surprised, actually, that the zine wasn't bigger. Given that Vila is probably the second-favorite character, you'd think a zine devoted to him would have a lot of submissions. But maybe B7 fans in general prefer variety in their zines? I wonder.
My favorite thing in the zine is Lorna's what-if AU, "A Handful of Smoke," in which Vila decides to go with Kerril. Through a complicated chain of circumstances, he eventually rejoins the others and saves the day on GP; but the ending is a tragic one for him. <sniffle!>
Strongly recommended for Vila fans. I think it's still in print; it was being sold new at MediaWest.
