**DISASTER FOLLOWS by Nova -- [Alt]
A very original uber story with a lot of atmosphere, this bard's first fanfic offering is set in Halifax, Nova Scotia in the 1920's, just a few years after the disastrous Halifax Explosion of 1917 which killed thousands when two ships, one carrying munitions, collided in the Harbor. Detective Allison Burton remembers the disaster well which is one reason she doubts she'll be able to find Virginia Potts' fiancee alive when the beautiful green-eyed American explains that he's been missing since that time and hires her to find him. It soon becomes apparent, however, that the intriguing little foreigner isn't as interested in the missing man perse as she is in something he possessed - a secret others are also desperately seeking and more than willing to kill for. Nova's story has the feel of one of those great detective murder movies like THE MALTESE FALCON with Allison being very reminiscent of the type of private eye Bogie typically played. A shifting point-of-view approach makes the similarity with these classic films even stronger - with the one notable difference being that NEITHER of Nova's heroines is the damsel in distress Hollywood typically used to give us. Allison and Virginia are both very strong, very capable, very determined women. The storyline is cleverly constructed with some surprising twists and a very thought-provoking resolution. This one should particularly please fans of mystery fiction. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 51 pgs., 12/1/98

This is a well-written story with solid characterizations and a sensitive, mature depiction of the Janeway/Seven relationship. DO NOT MISS! - 51 pgs., 3/5/00
