Mini Review By Sarah Thompson

The zine is mostly humor but has some serious stories too. The one I was most struck by was the grimly-titled "Genocide." It's actually about Avon and Tarrant being trapped in each other's bodies! (Oh, if only this were a smut story, and they would have to have tantric sex to get switched back, like Avon and Cally in Trust, Like the Soul.) The title refers to the issue of whether, if the mechanism for getting them switched back happens to be fatal to an entire planetary population, they'll go through with it or not.

There are wonderful illos by Dani Lane (an artist I greatly admire), showing Avon's body with Tarrant's mannerisms and vice versa. I think she's especially good with body language.


"Space Oddity" and "Son of Space Oddity" were specifically HUMOR-theme zines
