Mini Review By Sarah Thompson

This zine is devoted to the less popular characters of B7, namely anyone other than Blake, Avon, Vila, Cally, and Servlan! The fiction features, in order, Travis (the editor's fave), Tarrant (her second fave-- but I don't think he'd qualify as a "forgotten" character today!), Soolin, Jenna, Gan, and some of the guest characters. Dayna doesn't star in any of the stories, but a couple of poems are devoted to her.

As usual it's hard to choose a favorite story, but I do especially like Leokadija's ironically titled "Happy Ending," which is actually an angsty death story for Gan. On the smut front, Roxie Ray's series develops a nice Vila/Soolin relationship, which is amusingly parodied in Anne Collins Smith's story. Ros Williams's tale of how the Liberator crew is psychoanalyzed by Carnell is also very funny. Both "Paradigmatic Duplicity" and "Crossroads" postulate encounters between Travis and Tarrant back in their Space Command days; "Duplicity" gives Tarrant a special relationship with Servalan.

Recommended for fans of any of these characters. I think the zine is out of print, but used copies can be found with a little searching.
