Slash in Gen Zines

There are a few slash pairings in gen zines. The last two on the list are the result of the policies of individual editors who treat non-explicit slash stories the same as non-explicit het stories, a policy that I agree with in principle but that does make things difficult for the bibliographer! (You may recall the confusion as to whether the excellent B/ocm story by Nicky Barnard should be considered slash or gen for Fan Q nomination purposes.) The others are either humorous, or involve original characters (and come to think of it, I probably should have described Judith Seaman's =A Ledge Betweeen the Streams= as "uc A/ocm"-- it definitely qualifies as slash by the Fan Q definition!), or have a non-explicit sequence that includes m/m rape as a form of torture (and there's another bit in a Judith Seaman story that could be included in that category, but I've refrained from mentioning it in the listings as it would be a bit of a spoiler).
