Without going into the details, I need to pick a few zines from http://www.asidozines.com/

Among my choices are two novellas taking place in Smallville -- but I don't know a damn thing about the fandom other that what's been penned by [info]peach1250 and [info]greenlady2. The two Smallville zines are Playthings (a Clark/Lex “Smallville” novel by VampyrAlex) and Race with Destiny</p> (a Smallville "Clex" slash novella by VampyrAlex and Chris J. Ueberall with full-color cover by Suzan Lovett). Are they worth getting, or should I go for a random anthology? Informed opinions, anyone?

I hardly ever buy novels if I don't know the author previously. Their Dyad zines are supposed to be really good though!

Thanks for the input. I've selected three of the Dyads (#2, 22, and 24).

I have no idea about Smallville, but Susan Lovett is well known in Pros for her beautiful artwork. I am just reading one of her illustrated zines and her skills in artwork are amazing!

I know her work through Starsky & Hutch, and yes, her work is drop-dead gorgeous.

I'm familiar with the authors from some of their Mag 7 slash stories. Their writing is...okay, but not, imo, top tier. Kinda average. However, I don't know anything about their Smallville stories. Suzan Lovett's art is always gorgeous.

I don't collect art anymore, so I wouldn't buy zines unless the authors were the very best and I knew the stories would never show up online (or I was too anxious to wait).

Thanks for your input. I love SL's art, but since it's more the words I'm after, I've concluded the Dyads are a safer bet and have selected (more or less at random) three of them.
