Mini Review By Sarah Thompson

At over 500 pages of small print, there's no doubt that this is a novel!

And I confess, I've never been able to get all the way through it. Now that I finally own a copy (bought in Pat's used zine sale, after looking for some time for a copy that was both in reasonably good condition and reasonably priced), maybe I will. I have mixed feelings about the zine. It's extremely well written stylistically, and I like the author's other work, but IMO this one should have been edited down to a shorter length. An awful lot of it is what's going on inside people's heads, and I for one tend to get bogged down in all this introspection and lose track of the plot.

But other people whose taste I respect and often agree with love it; one says it's her very favorite B7 story. So, YMMV.

What I really bought the zine for is the yummy art. The Karen River color cover is gorgeous, and most of the interior illos are really nice too.
