First, I hope that I haven’t lost any of you loyal readers by waiting so long to get this issue out. We have lots of material now, so there should be lots of reading material coming your way between now and the end of the year, which should make up for the long dry spell since August.
Next, I would like to officially welcome a new author, Bill Erdley, to the published fold. I’m sure he never thought he’d see this story in print – he only submitted it to me an eon ago! But here it is, and I’m sure you all will like it. It presents a different perspective on the little war we’re having, and does so very effectively.
Lastly, for those of you who haven’t heard, the Archive at MGSE is no longer functioning for a variety of unavoidable reasons. What this means is that the back-issues of DargonZine are no longer available in an automated way. When the Archive accepted DargonZine as part of its service, I archived all of the back-issues to tape (I needed the space desperately!). So, while I do still have access to them, I do not have them on hand at all times. Consequently, if anyone wants back-issues of DargonZine from now until someone else volunteers to house and distribute them (a veiled plea!), they will have to send their requests to me and I will put them in a queue. When I have enough requests and enough time, I will send them all out at once – it is unlikely that this will be any more frequent than once a month (sorry).
Now, on with the stories…..
