Two of the stories could easily have gone into an adult zine. "Jenna's Fortune" includes some fairly explicit Blake/Jenna scenes. "Last Dance" is a Vila/Kerril vignette; this is the story that explains why they put all their clothes back on after making love. It's short and not explicit, but it sticks in the mind; I've heard a number of people refer to it fondly.
The two stories by Pat Patera, one A-B and one A-V, have a very slashy feel to them and are recommended for slash fans who also like gen stories with intense m-m interactions.
The most unusual story is "End of the Line," a PGP in which Vila and Dayna appear at first to be the only survivors of GP-- and Dayna has been horribly transformed by Dorian's basement. Strong and well-written! I'm fascinated by the few stories that show us Dayna's dark side; Lorna's "Avenging Angel" in Zen and the Art of Rebellion #2 is another excellent example.
This zine fits interestingly into the Tarot discussion. Not only does it include Ann Schwader's cycle of Tarot poems, but the story "Jenna's Fortune" also includes a "Federation Tarot" that figures in the story.
