Thanks to some fine fans on Facebook, I've gotten motivated to re-offer Torn
as independent zines for your reading pleasure. Because of Reasons, neither of these stories will ever be offered online. Torn
(2004, 106 pages, click link to order) is only the second S/H story I ever wrote and has difficult content, so be fairly warned. 75 copies of this novella were originally printed, and it also traveled the world 2.5 times as a floating zine before one unfortunate fan selfishly kept it in Italy. But now you can own your very own copy for the low-low price of $4.99 plus shipping! Lulu ships internationally with quite reasonable rates.
The summary: Undercover and out of reach, even the best efforts of the BCPD are unable to protect Hutch from being abducted and abused by a man with a vicious agenda. Now Starsky has to locate his best friend and rescue him. As always, the partners are short on time. (offscreen rape cw, recovery fic, Hutch h/c, first time.) Beta by Padawan Ula Luva, Brynn H and Lavender Jade.Jericho
(2005, 144 pages, click link to order) $4.99 + shipping. — originally published in VPC V by KeriT, cover illustration by Lorraine Brevig, beta by Dana Austin Marsh, this novel-length zine (137 pages) is a what-if set after Snowstorm. What if the boys in blue weren't too happy with Starsky and Hutch for taking down the dirty cops Corman and Burke? What would life be like around the precinct for our guys? (Casefic, Hutch h/c, emotional h/c for both our guys, rocky relationship.)
Both zines are perfect bound with glossy color covers and 12-pt type, trade paper interiors. Torn is on white paper, Jericho on cream.
Just FYI, the profit on these puppies is running me about .69 each, which seems oddly appropriate. Any profit I do make will be donated to The San Francisco SPCA
, from which I acquired my one-eyed cat, Pirate Kitty.
To celebrate the release of these perfect-bound zines, and for the enjoyment of anyone who can't do zines for any reason, I'm publishing a new zine story online:
Title: Never Let Go
Originally Published 10/2010 in The Perfect Couple
Categories: Starsky H/C, PTSD, First Time, post-Bloodbath
Warnings: Canon-related drug references and to Starsky's trauma in Bloodbath.
Summary: In this coda to Bloodbath
, Starsky slowly recovers his disturbing memories of that shattered time, and learns something valuable in the process.
