Art Information: Pam Tuck, Mary Page, Jan Durr, Kathy Palumbo, Bev Ingle, Barb Gipson, M. J. Bray, J. Jung, Sandra Parker

Ordering Information: Unknown

Additional Information: There's the usual miscellany: sightings and current doings of B&B cast members; a crossword; a trivia quiz; some cartoons and limericks (by L. Roewade); discussion of "Song of Orpheus" by Sandra Parker. Included is an essay on the reasons for, and dramatic effectiveness of, B&B's controversial 3rd season, by Janet Kilbourne. Sue Haley provides Vincent's journal musings about what Winslow meant to the community. In "Chronicler," Joanne Gillmeister tells of Amanda Danning, writer and helper, who's recruited by Father to write down the stories, the history, of the tunnels. Rhonda Collins' lighthearted anecdote "Once Upon a Hot Roof" describes Diana's unconventional method of getting Vincent to remove some of the stifling layers of clothes during a NY heatwave. The newest chapter of Roewade's continuing story "Resurgat" has Vincent and Diana quietly sightseeing through the tunnels and, prodded by Narcissa, about to enter a new phase in their relationship. Sandra Orr's "Out of Friendship" posits a different, and less difficult, progression from friendship to love between V/C, starting in the pilot. Orr's "Hindsight" has C blackmailed into marriage with Elliot. Roewade's "The Second Blossoming" has V rather bemusedly acting as confidante and go-between for uncertain lovers Cullen and Sarah. And in the zine's final story, "I Know Who You Are" by Sheila Waters (reprinted from a British zine), toddler Jacob's display of increasingly aggressive tendencies troubles V, who fears they are a mirror of his own dark Beast nature surfacing in the child, otherwise seemingly so normal. Poetry by Tom Shapiro and Ron Hellard, David Roewade, Junior Charles, and Sandra Parker.

Ordering Information: Unknown

Additional Information: Canadian all-season zine. This issue concludes Roewade's V/D novelette, "Resurgat." In the present installment, Vincent completes his absentee college studies, comes to a new understanding with Diana, and accepts his right to have, and claim, a life of his own, in addition to his role as a member of the tunnel community. Sandra Orr's "Happily Ever After" presents Vincent's twin, David, whose empathic sense, more intense than Vincent's, has become a debilitating curse that has exiled him from nearly all human contact In Roewade's "A Stain on His Character," Elliot Burch, now living Below, justifies himself concerning the first and second season events that gave people of the tunnel community a negative impression of him without understanding his perspective on things. British writer Janet Kilbourne discusses Father's role in the community and treatment of Vincent in "Father--the Outcast Creator," an essay. In another essay "What It Is All About," Sue Evans emphasizes third season's theme of transcending sorrow and suffering as a vital component of Beauty and the Beast. Also several poems by David Roewade and other poems whose author(s?) isn't identified. A cartoon, a word search game, and sightings of cast members are also included.
