Purple Haze by Executrix

Sexual politics meets revolutionary politics in this delicious series of interlinked shorts. This is one of my all-time favourites amongst Executrix's immensely varied and stylish output

[Added 16/04/2003; Drama; 2500-6000; Blake's 7; Characters: Roj Blake, Kerr Avon, Jenna Stannis, Inga, Hal Mellanby, Kasabi, OCs]

Relations by Penny Dreadful

One of my favourite stories in Emma Peel's excellent zine, I, Mutoid, Relations presents a hypothesis for the origin of mutoids that is as plausible as it is disturbing. There's also a wonderfully detailed picture of Dome life

[Added 21/12/2003; Drama; 6000-20,000; Blake's 7; Characters: Minor, OCs]

The Wit and Wisdom of the Dead by Neil Faulkner

A classic of B7 fanwriting, this extremely inventive story bends canon without ever breaking it. It's also one of the few in the fandom to run with the sf behind the series

[Added 16/04/2003; Drama; 6000-20,000; Blake's 7; Characters: Travis, Lurgen, OCs]
