Additional Information: Mostly Continued Classic. The longest tale is a sequence by Betty Mills: "And All Winters End" and "One Love--Parts One and Two." In this series, the first part serves as a brief prologue introducing V/C and their family of three young children, including Joseph, the youngest, who resembles V. In the later narrative, "One Love," Joseph, grown to mid adolescence, is in love. Lynette Combs' "Stone Soup" continues the adventures Below of moppet Naomi, featured in Combs' zines Promises to Keep 1-2. Adele Turner's "To Serve in Heaven" is a unique look at Paracelsus' last days. Sandra Platt's "A Love to Transcend Time" tells of the romantic encounter between Egyptian god Vckenere and destined princess Kahfrenei. Cindy Van Houten's "My Sister's Keeper" recounts how Devin, again with a traveling circus, finds himself the surrogate father of orphaned freak Eva, who's like V, only with spotted fur, white hair, and a more obviously feline way of laughing. In Helen Commodore's "The Real Tomorrow," the narrator is disgusted with the zines she uncritically accumulated in the first rush of enthusiasm for the series. Appalled, she drags the box of offending zines to be collected with the trash. The box is delightedly collected by young Charles and younger Jacob, (the sons of you-know-who). Vignettes by Adele Turner, Kimberly Jo Raymond, Helen Commodore, and Laurie Wittenberg. A poem by Turner celebrates Vincent's "Passionate Kisses," and Combs contributes several cartoons.

ed. by Nan Dibble

June 1995

V/D

Rating: PG-13

Size: 8 1/2 x 11, 145 p (mostly in columns), much art. Despite the page count, this is a big zine, with ten stories, two novelettes, and considerable poetry and artwork. Smallish but legible typeset type in columns, through most of it, serves to keep the zine compact.

Art information: Art by Rosemarie Hauer, Jan Durr, and Klemp.

Ordering Information: Unknown

Additional Information: Fiction by the usual Phoenix writers, with the addition of Lydia Bower, who wrote "Similarities" and "Rightfully Mine." In the former story, Vincent and Diana confront his claws...with a pair of clippers. In the latter, after explosive reluctance Vincent finally admits to himself (and Diana) his true and long-denied feelings about Catherine, the bond, and their chaste relationship. In Jackie Kapke's "A Parent's Passing," Father is stricken by a stroke and speaks comfortingly to nearly everyone Below who dreads being without him. In "The Crusade," Melissa Baird and Marsha Young theorize about what might have happened if Vincent continued to feel closest to Catherine in the act of killing...even after she was dead. In Jackie Kapke's "Distant Thunder," Vincent and Diana have a romantic interlude on her rooftop. Gloria Jones' "Whither Thou Goest" is a continuation of a previous story, Jackie Kapke's "Another Life" (from Phoenix 3), in which amnesiac Catherine, encountered Vincent in Central Park. This present story tells how she believes this shadowed figure holds the key to her forgotten past. Lena Wood presents "Copycat," in which Diana sets out to stop a murderer threatening to strike at someone in the cast of a rock musical about the legendary monsters of history. Rhonda Collins' "Journey's End" is a continuation of the storyline of her first Vincent/Diana series, in which married V/D are trying to come to terms with his having been forced to kill Modred, a son he never knew he had. Nan Dibble contributes two stories and a novelette. "Legacy" tells how severely wounded Elliot drags himself Below and Vincent sets out to heal the man's corrosive grief. In "Thoughts Beyond Imagining," Diana finds herself forced to speculate on the meaning of the fact that Catherine never revealed her pregnancy to Peter Alcott, the one person she could have safely confided in. And in the novelette "Sebastian," Diana takes in a stray cat who, health and confidence renewed, sets out on a campaign to oust rival Vincent from Diana's loft. Poetry by Maxine Mayer, Dibble, Rita Klemp, Baird.
