DIAMONDS AND DYNAMITE 3
As the saying goes, diamonds and dynamite come in small packages. And though these are digest-sized gen zines, they're nice and *thick,* filled with engaging stories in dozens of fandoms!
"Finest Kind" by JJJunky – (Supernatural / M*A*S*H*) -- Knowing Dean is too injured to survive getting to a hospital, Sam accepts a stranger's help to save his brother. Is it more than just good luck that the man is a doctor *and* knows what a hunter is?
"Cryptozoologists and Creavers" by Susan Macdonald – (Threshold) -- A cryptozoology convention and a science-fiction convention, held in the same hotel on the same weekend, leave the team scrambing to find Captain Manning and avoid the broadcast of the alien signal, tasks made doubly difficult when half the people they encounter are dressed as aliens and the other half believe the feds are suppressing the *real* details of the last Bigfoot sighting.
"Kissing Cousins" by Lorraine Anderson – (Stargate SG-1) -- After visiting a planet where he received a 'kiss of friendship,' Jack suddenly starts experiencing blackouts, losing hours, sometimes whole days at a time. When Janet can find nothing wrong, he takes his team back to the planet, determined to figure out what happened to him.
"Captain Simian and the Space Pirates" by Susan Macdonald – (Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys) -- Captain Simian and the crew of the Primate Avenger learn the dangers of picking up stray hitchhikers. Space pirates learn not to underestimate Earth monkeys.
"Plans Change" by Dana Bell – (Stargate: Atlantis / Change of Plans / Terra Nova) -- Once again, John Sheppard's orders disrupt his wife Sally's music career. It wouldn't have been so bad, living in Maine; she'd still have opportunities. Unfortunately, Atlantis' supposedly routine flight across the country doesn't happen according to plan, and the city falls into a time rip, the Atlanteans finding themselves 85 million years in Earth's past….
"A Knight without a Quest" by Susan Macdonald – (The Quest / The Man from UNCLE) -- The royal quest was over and the new king and queen of Glendora had been chosen. So Cody was out of the running, and running out of things to do. He was bored, bored, bored. So when Sir John from U.N.C.L.E. came calling, looking for an ex-con man who, through very long and complicated bloodlines, had ties to the throne, and thus, diplomatic immunity, Cody had a feeling his next quest was only just beginning…
"The Passsing Shadow" by Sheila Paulson – (Grimm) -- Children are vanishing in Portland, and the one who returned is so terrified that he can give no real information about his abductor, and the cell phone of the latest missing child has been crushed by a clawed hand. With the possibility of a Wesen perp, Nick and Hank are racing the clock to find the children before they are beyond hope of being saved. However, even if they are rescued, they may still face a dire fate. Will even Monroe's help be enough to figure this out in time?
* Real Ghostbusters *
THE MUSIC OF TEARS AND MEMORY
From the fertile mind of Sheila Paulson comes another enchanting gen novel! When its ivories are tickled, a unique and valuable piano sends out vibes of pain, grief and agony to those with the ability to feel it. When the four Ghostbusters and Egon's cousin, musician Eddie Plummer, trace the haunted piano back to its original location, they suspect a murder has taken place, and not only must they deal with the paranormally influenced piano, but also the lethal threat from the murderer they have brought to light...
* Stargate SG-1 *
AUTHOR'S CHOICE 2 HET
Chosen by the authors themselves to showcase the best het tales in "Stargate" fandom, here in a single volume, are tales of sweet talk, snappy arguments, warm cuddling, shouts of fear and passionate love between Daniel and Vala, for the majority of the stories, and between Jack and Sam for a couple of tales of their own. Want to see behind the romance that the tv series only hinted at? You'll find that and more in this amazing zine!
