Message from the Publisher

Have you written a story that you want printed in a fanzine, but you've found that most editors refuse it because it's already been posted on the Internet?

Try submitting it to us.

Many of our customers are looking for good stories that they know are on the net, but they don't have the Internet access. They'll enjoy your work.

Many of our customers do have net access, but don't have the time to download everything that they wan! to read.. .or the extra money for all the paper and ink that involves.

They also appreciate the written word - - it's hard to read off the monitor while soaking in a bubble bath (and dangerous, too!!!)

Please contact us for details and guidelines. [1]
