A Blake's 7 adult/slash zine

Forbidden Star Two weighs in at nearly 170 A4 pages, all in double column layout.

Mini Review and Contents by Sarah Thompson

The bias is inevitably towards Avon/Blake because that's what I like best and what I write most of, but there's something for virtually everyone. Blake/Gan (reprint of two short stories from Space City), Avon/Gan, Avon/Cally (2), Avon/Vila, Avon/Tarrant (2 or 3 depending on how you count it), Avon/Servalan (2), Avon/Soolin, Dayna/?, an impossible to categorise but very well written story involving Vila and Servalan, and around 8 or 9 Avon/Blake stories depending on how you count them.

All stories are new to the zine except for a few stories under a page long which originally appeared on Space City, and 'White Mutiny' which was serialised there.

Writers include Gemini, Vanessa Mullen, xBryn Lantry, Predatrix, Julia Stamford, Susan Cutter, Ebony (poetry), Christabel, Twisted Sister, Arachne, N. Barnard, Alicia Ann Fox, Loulou Harris, Neil Faulkner, Susan Riaz, and Andrea. The cover is by Karen River and interior art is by Mary O'Connor and Val Westall.

All art falls into the catogory of 'can be read without worrying about your boss looking over your shoulder.' In other words, no nudes.

Writing styles range all the way from Shakespearean pastiche to an Avon/Vila slash story written in computer code.

There's stories with all the sex off-stage and there are stories like White Mutiny where the sex is definitely on-stage. There's a couple of rape stories and some that don't go beyond holding hands. I have wide ranging tases in smut, and this zine tends to reflect what I like.
