The December Issue

Late & a little light. But see the editorial for why. Down, maybe, but not out!

(And the editorial is... here.)

Happy holidays everyone!

I'm sorry John left, but you all did a great job with this issue. Looking forward to the next ones!

Just curious as to how you contacted the readers. I'm a subscriber and I'm registered for the forums, but I didn't receive a mail.

Also, should people resubmit any outstanding queries that were with John before he left?

At this point I believe we have contacted all those who have known submissions or queries in to us; there's a small number of outstanding submissions which we should have responses to within a week to ten days. If you haven't heard from us by now, please do resubmit anything to me (for now: we also hope to have a new editor-in-chief within about 2 weeks.

Realistically, I think the next issue will be out at the end of January, and I guess we'll call it the February issue. We had 11 issues total in 2004, and I hope we can do 11 more in 2005 (that being, sans the January issue: next January's issue, published in December, would be a 12th published issue in the year, but it will be counted towards 2006).

As for sending email to readers: I sent email to all those subscribers who have their preferences set to "notify when a new issue is out." (Reason: a new issue *wasn't* out, which is sort of a related topic.) It should be noted that a great many emails seem to get caught in spam filters of one sort or another these days. I clicked through the web-authorize links on earthlink and related sites for well over 100 emails this month. Also, there were about 35 rejected emails (mailbox over quota, user unknown, etc.) -- you might want to double check that we have the correct email on file.

Thanks for the update. I didn't have "new issue" set so I set that one. And I'll resubmit my query.

Do you 'ave ANY idea what a vapid wasteland of lark's vomit it is out there on the Internet when it comes to -quality content- particularly of the "professional quiet" kind?

The alchemy 'ere that results in minimal flash, maximum informed opine serves a beverage that we are not often treated to on the net.

So, Please do not make me go back out there looking for a place like IROSF again.

It is a Quest far more perilous than the one's involving dragons and rings.

And one, I suspect, in which one (this one) will suffer the indignity of growing old, trying.

Lark's vomit??? It doesn't say anything about lark's vomit!

Ah it does, on the bottom of the box, after monosodium glutamate.

Seriously, thanks Michael.

So what happened to John Frost, if I may ask? Sudden illness? Finally met a better knife-fighter?
