Aphelion Webzine and Cris Lawrence's story "Time and Time
Again" have both been
nominated for a "Top 10 on the Internet" award presented by the
Preditors & Editors website.! The following banner and the
"Vote!" button underneath this issue's story links will take you to
their site so that you can cast you own vote or nominate your own
favorite stories, poems, and webzines. P&E can explain the
contest better than I can, but the contest ends at midnite on January
1st, so check them out and vote soon! As of Nov. 22nd, Cris' story is
currently #1 in the voting, while Aphelion is holding steady as the #2
webzine. Your vote could be he one that makes us #1!
for our 10th issue! This one is really on time! Last month's problems
with Hotmail seem to have cleared up nicely and I've added a few new
wordprocessors to help widen the variety of filetypes I can accept
submissions in. I'm also playing around with some new HTML editors so
as to speed the layout of stories.
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 do!
In this issue there are new writers, new chapters in our continued
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
