Welcome back for our 9th issue! This one isn't really on time,
has been down for the last few days so I can't retrieve all of the
stories submitted to that e-mail address. I'll post the rest of the
stories as soon as possible. If you'd like to be on a mailing list for
notification of the update or for the upload of new issues of Aphelion
then click here
to send me an e-mail. Be sure to put the words Aphelion
Mailing List in the Subject line of the e-mail. This
mailing list will only be used to notify you of new issues and will
never be given out to anyone else... 'cause I hate spam as much as you
In this issue there are new writers, new chapters in our
stories, new continued stories begun, updates on our reports, our
letter column, and a new cartoon.
Please visit our letter column and drop us a note. Our writers like to
read the Lettercol to look for words of encouragement. Not many of you
readers have the time to send e-mail to the writers whose stories you
especially enjoyed. Well, that's why our Assistant Editor worked up the
Letter Column Page, so folks can let everyone know what kind of job
they're doing. Its helped me to realize that I need to do a better job
proofreading, something that I did this issue. I may not have caught
every mistake, but I caught more of 'em!
I'd like to thank those of you who have sent e-mails for your
Keep those e-mails coming, folks! Without those messages we will never
know what we need to improve upon. Hope you like the improvements so
We had 634 Readers visit Aphelion in September! Thank you!
Please keep coming
back for each new issue as it goes online.
Also, there are links to back issues of Aphelion at the

Some folks have asked about submitting Poetry: While we do not
poetry ourselves, there is someone for the poets to turn to- The
Writer's Club, a poetry Webzine run by one of our friends
from the DALnet IRC Chat network. Visit #the_WritersClub on DALnet and
check out the Writer's Club Webpage if you are poetically inclined. I
have been informed that our parent Webzine is back into production!
