Blake's 7 rec

One of the B7 fans and writers I met at Star One was Gillian Taylor. She's a professional writer of Westerns, not a genre I like though I did read one of hers, Darrow's Law, a couple of years ago because of its Avon and Vila avatars (Sheriff Darrow and his deputy Keating). Perhaps she has to pull her punches for those books; it didn't engage me or my emotions but her two stories in the B7 zine Star Four did. Her Rehabilitation is a moving account of just how damaged Vila was by the 'readjustments' he went through as a child, and Four Little Words was a blackly funny Orbit AU.
