The Author's Foreward

comments from the insane asylum:

So, folks, this is what happens when you have two weeks to go before the con and nothing better to do. MAKE A ZINE! Write a story: well, actually, that was already done. Beg from your friends: the artist, of course, has other things to do with her time and energy and talent. Beg from the editors: the friendly ghouls & cannibals really want to give hard, incisive blue pencil to above-mentioned story. Add some songs: assume that everyone wants to know the words you're singing on the tape you put out same con last year. Take advantage of the WANG. Thank God for word processors—and for copiers. (Just think if we were monks doing this by hand!) Momentarily, have the ego to present the whole to friends, acquaintances and strangers in hopes of their purchasing power rubbing off on you. And hope, pray, cross your fingers that some major news event won't put Dan Rather on the air at all and odd hours. (So, thanks to CBS News, my employers.) Haul it to the con. Why am I doing this?

Well, I did say this was an insane asylum.
