The zine contains three stories by Oriole Alma Throckmorton. "Neither Love nor Money" is a comic alternate version of the Avon- Anna story, written after "Countdown" but before "Rumours." Gen, really, although it does pair Anna and-- Tynus!
"Licence" is the standout story. According to the editorial, it was the first slash story written for publication in B7 fandom. And it's a Tarrant story! It's about his youthful adventures with the masterful Jarvik. He's telling the story to his present bedmate, and at the very end we find out who that is. I won't tell, but I think a lot of people on this list will be pleased. :)
"Food for Thought" is a funny story in which Vila acquires a pet dragon, whose diet is human virgins. Which crew member or members must be carefully protected?
Also included are some funny smutty limericks, and the Servalan filk "Mistress of the Universe," which was recorded by Linda Short on one of her filk tapes; there's no indication of who wrote the poetry.
There are amusing, nicely decorative line drawings by Jean Sheward. Since the zine was produced ten years ago, without benefit of computers, the production quality does not compare to current publications like Judith's; but it is legible, wonderfully reasonably priced, and the stories are excellent-- especially "Licence." Highly recommended! Get it while you can!
Licence Allegedly the first slash story written in B7. And it's a Tarrant/Jarvik! An explanation for why Jarvik thinks Tarrant is a Real Man, and a neat suggestion as to how and why an FSA graduate came to be a mercenary.
Food for Thought Vila goes on a shopping trip and brings back a dragon. The preferred diet of dragons is freshly killed human virgin, which leads to much fun and games as we find out who does or doesn't qualify as dragon dinner. Yes, it's silly. I still liked it.
A very slim zine at 22 pages, including a couple of pages of limericks and poetry as well as the above, but a lot of fun. Recommended.
