Hello everyone, So...we were denied an audience for our screaming egos on the BBC, well, never mind! In the meantime we've been working on the webzine...
The Aquitar Files has a new look!
With almost 300 registered readers now, we thought we'd tart the place up and invite you all over for another visit...
A new logo and design are just part of our recent overhaul of "The Aquitar Files"! Take the time to visit us and you will find:
Plus, for those who still haven't gotten around to reading the rest of the stories, we have 21 short stories, a novella and one novel.
Temporarily housed new deluxe vanilla (no frames) version at: http://www.homeusers.prestel.co.uk/okco/aquitar
(this will be moved over when Reba has a spare minute or fifty!)

You need to request a username and password to access the stories; email your request to email@example.com, with the subject header 'AF:Password'. We have an auto-response bot set up so you should be able to access the site within a day.
We currently many short stories, a novella, and a novel length story online, as well as a few other things -- including a page of my photos from Deliverance! Some of these have previously appeared in very old zines or on one of the B7 mailing lists, but the majority are getting their first publication on TAF.
We are always looking for more submissions, so if you have a story you'd like to submit, please do! Or if you have an old one that's long out-of-print that you'd like to resurrect, or one that has appeared elsewhere, we'd love to see that too (as long as it's OK with the editor of whatever it appeared in first!!) Some people have commented that e-fic for other fandoms have been of generally lower quality because there's no editor. Not in this case! Loulou and I do the usual editorial stuff that you get in a paper zine, and try to keep the quality of the stories high.
The Aquitar Files was the first Web site entirely dedicated to publishing new B7 fiction.

Avon finds himself transported to a strange parallel universe where familiar people play unfamiliar roles.
The action is set around a new ship with a new crew, but they are, nonetheless, caught up in the currents of a history of which they know little and understand less. The few still surviving from that time play their cards very close to their chests.
As a highly politicised group of writers, we have always felt that Blake's Seven's strengths lay in its portrayal of intrigue at a personal and social level, as in episodes like `The Way Back', `Gambit', `Rumours of Death' and `Traitor', rather than its rubbery aliens in `The Web', `Redemption', `Ultraworld' and `Animals'. Hence we intend to follow the trend of the later two seasons and concentrate mainly on Blake's Seven as space thriller, avoiding telepathic pet rocks (indeed telepathic anything), headless robots and ill-advised genetic experiments wherever possible.
Since we intend to retain a number of the characters from the original series, we ought to have some kind of explanation for the end of `Blake' and an account of its immediate aftermath. We hope to expose our theory in the course of the new scripts.
Thus far, we have written the first two episodes of our putative new season...
The first, Enforcer, tells of a woman with a unique opportunity to pursue a vendetta...
The second, Silver City, examines a situation where present circumstance, past loyalty and commercial reality all come into conflict...
Work has started on the third episode, Aristo, in which a slightly too remarkable coincidence brings together old and new...
