name Aphelion is a sentimental one for me because it was the title of
the fanzine published by the University of Georgia Science Fiction
Appreciation and Discussion Club. Other writers to have come from this
club include Tom Deitz and C.S. Freedman. I was a member during 1976-78
and was proud to have some poetry and a story published in the original
Aphelion Fanzine. The name is used with respect and many fond memories
of my fellow club members, and with the permission of the publishers of

down. I hope to keep up the high standards set by the Lair and keep
everyone coming back for a good time and some great stories! One thing
you need to know is that this Zine is not meant to stroke my own ego.
It is meant to be a forum for new writers to hone their skills, get
their names in front of the public, and have a lot of fun doing so. I
have an e-mail address for submissions, click
here to submit a story. A set of guidlines for those
submissions is now online . For now I hope everyone will bear with me
while I get the Zine on it's feet. I'd like to thank Roger Bennett for
all his help and for giving me the go-ahead to keep the spirit of
Dragon's Lair Webzine alive. Roger, without you none of this would be
possible. Thank you and best of luck as a pro writer!
