**SUMMER GAMES OR HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BARD by Rooks -- [Alt]
From the gifted bard who's brought us great fanfic pieces like YOU CAN'T JUDGE A SCROLL BY ITS CASE and most recently THE FARMER'S TALE comes a charming new story that further marks this writer's fiction as one of the most original around. This newest tale is an enchanting package full of surprises. It begins ominously enough with the Warrior Princess discovering her partner in a rather...compromising position. In an attempt to explain, the embarrassed bard then begins a tale Xena is herself somewhat familiar with - only Gabrielle tells her about the parts she didn't know. The bard recalls their journey to Calydon to warn the people of a killer boar loose in the area. She recalls too their encounter there with the princess Atalanta - an athletic beauty determined to prove herself...and very much fascinated with the warrior and bard who befriend her. It is a friendship that soon finds Xena trying to keep the flirtatious princess from getting killed - and finds Gabrielle considering...new possibilities. Rooks characterizations are exceptional with a Xena and Gabrielle that are very different people but also very well-matched partners and equals. With the characteristic blend of humor, romance, and SURPRISES that increasingly define a Rooks tale, this is one read that will leave you shaking your head in amazement and sporting one decidedly satisfied grin! A MUST READ folks! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! -- 74 pgs., 8/31/98
