This is a collection of gen stories, all of which focus in some way on the relationship between Avon and Blake. They feature strong, well-developed characters, well thought-out plots and a relationship which is intense without ever becoming over-sentimental. They are some of the best stories about Avon and Blake that I have ever read. If I had to recommend just one zine from all those I sell, it would be this one.

The art in this zine was previously published in Those Who Favour Fire. The front cover and two of the inside pictures are by Suzan Lovett. There is one picture by Jean Kluge from Those Who Favour Fire, and the back cover is a new picture by Val Westall.
The zine is full size with black and white, gloss card covers and a glue binding with a taped spine. The layout is double column.
