Murder on San Carmelitas by Lynna Bright was originally published as a stand-alone paper zine in 1986 by April Valentine's Amapola Press. It was one of the most popular and enduring works of fiction available to the fandom in the pre-internet print zine era, and reflects the time in which it was created. Written prior to 1986, the story takes place in 1982, 36 months after Gunther's assassination attempt on Starsky. MoSC creates a fictional island off the coast of California called San Carmelitas owned and populated primarily by gay men. Starsky and Hutch have to go undercover as a gay couple on this island to catch a serial killer.

However, the crime plot wasn't what made MoSC such a significant fannish work. What made this story so important to fans of its era was the way the writer portrayed the depth of the emotional conflict between Starsky and Hutch as their assignment forces these two straight men to have to deal with their conflicting feelings about gays, their role in the undercover, and the change in their relationship since Starsky's shooting.

Story Notes:

Murder on San Carmelitas by Lynna Bright, with over 20 hand-drawn illustrations by Suzan Lovett, was originally published as a stand-alone paper zine in 1986 by April Valentine's Amapola Press. Due to technological and economic limitations of the day, the zine was initially produced with black and white representations of Suzan Lovett's original color art. When color reproduction became easier to obtain and more affordable, the editor republished the zine in 1996 to honor its 10-year anniversary with full color art and a new color cover by Suzan Lovett.

This digital version includes all the art produced for the zine. Some of the images have been directly scanned from original illos. Two images were originally produced in black and white. Links to printable versions of the art can be found under each illo.
