Additional Information: This zine set its writers a task: "What would
you get if you offered several Beauty and the Beast writers a single
image and then let their imaginations run wild...?" The image, in this
case, is the titular hat. In Becky Bain's "Lucky Cap," straying tunnel
children have befriended an old man who frequents a certain park bench
and goes missing...and is suspected of being a child molester;. Beth
Druhan's "Angelo Harper" puts Angelo, a neglected and very ill child,
at the center of a search for his beloved protector, Tilly - an elderly
street person. "Moira's Veil" by Margaret Davis is a ghost story, of
sorts, in which the veil, down through the years, shows a special
power. "Hat Trick" by Cynthia Hatch is a detective story with Catherine
uneasily trying to cope with the ramifications of having picked up what
seems a discarded hat. Carol Kyne's "Trials and Tears" has Vincent
showing up at Catherine's apartment having forgotten to remove a hat
he'd been wearing while enacting Robinson Crusoe for the children Below.
