I don't remember who
or when it was first suggested to my I do a 'Greatest Hits'
sort of zine (or at least a writer's choice), but it was a
while ago, and since then, I've received a few more
requests, so I finally figured, what the hey, why not go
for it. So I have, and here it is.
It's been quite a trip
down memory lane. Funny thing, going back and
refurbishing old friends isn't as easy as it sounds - in
fact, when faced by the evidence of just how far away you've
come from where you once were when certain things were written,
it's a little painful. But I've done it, gone rooting through archives for original part 0s for
additional insights - through the comments they contain, to what I was
thinking and feeling at the time these tales were written (and in at least one
instance was surprised to discover my memory about certain
facts was not quite accurate). What follows are my personal
favourites, lovingly refurbished, a few nips and tucks, one
or two story points strengthened, some new bits here and
there, all illustrated and annotated with comprehensive
story notes. The table of contents contains all the notes
and comments from the original Part 0's when the stories
were first posted, as well as the dates when the stories
first debuted. I've also thrown a couple of little
extras I hope you will find as amusing as I do.
coming with me on this journey, I couldn't have done any of
it without you!

Two humble offering
that have never appeared on the net. The first, a
little tale called Souls, which has been one of my
best kept secrets (and for good reason), and was also my
first slash story. Written for our very own Rowan way
back when as a gift, slightly...um...improved - but not all
of the inadvertently hysterical bits edited out - for
inclusion in this zine, this version never before seen by
anyone, including Rowan. The second little gift from
me to you, in its un-adulterated and dubious glory, is the
original gen Epilogue from Hide and Seek, exactly as it
appeared in Gateways 3 and up until now seen by those who've
seen the zine. Trust me, this howler had me in
stitches when I looked it up again. Definitely worth
checking out for the amusement value alone!
You may only buy this
zine if you are of legal age in your country.
