Since January 27th 1997
I received an e-mail January 13th telling me that
Aphelion has been
given a "Fiendish Best" award by Pro Sci-Fi/Fantasy writer Allan Cole's
Cole And Cash's
Fiendish Best On
The Web Award
The banner above provides a link to Allan Cole's website where you may
find out more about his work. You can also find links to the other
recipients of this award.
it seems that another one of our writers is branching out; D.K Smith
has become the Sci-Fi Editor of a new webzine: The Little Read Writing
Hood. There is a banner near the end of this page that will take you to
visit the Little Read Writing Hood website, where you will find all
manner of good stories in several different genres. Give it a visit
Welcome back for our 13th issue! If you'd like to be on a
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
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

I have made arrangements with Pagecount and the company that
be called LPage to give us two different substitutes for the old
lettercol. There is now a Guestbook provided by LPage for you to use as
a replacement for the old Lettercol. Use the "Sign my Guestbook" or
"View my Guestbook" links near the bottom of this page to access this
feature. Thanks for being so patient. I'm still refining the look and
options of the guestbook, so keep your eyes open for changes. Also, by
clicking on the "Leave Message" button on our Pagecount hit counter
(right under our title at the top of this page), you can leave me a
private message, but be sure to chose the "private message" option or I
may not be able to accesses it.
I'd like to thank those of you who have sent e-mails for your
feedback. 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 far!

Starting with this issue (February -- #13), Aphelion is going
shift to a bi-monthly schedule. I'm sorry if this upsets anyone, but
I'm going to have to do this for personal reasons;
So you can see that I have to do this in order to keep from
shutting Aphelion down entirely. It is my hope that each bi-monthly
issue will have as much material as two monthly issues would have had,
as well as keeping the quality of the issues high and getting them out
on time. I plan on keeping Aphelion running for at least another two
years, after which time I'll review my options and decide on the best
course of action. I look forward to the support of the readers and
writers- whatever happens in the future, I'm dedicated to doing the
best job that I can possibly do.
- I'm going to start working more overtime at my regular job
so as to make ready to buy a house.
- I've started submitting stories to the paying publishers
again and need more time to write.
- And I'm fighting a case of burn-out from the workload of
producing Aphelion each month.
Thank you all, for you make everything that happens at

your readership for without you, nothing we do has any meaning.
Something has gone wrong at the Archive website!
Back-issue Archive is no longer available-- so I'm trying to set up a
new site somewhere. I've inquired of Fortune City to see if the Archive
can be moved there. Please be patient while I await their response.
I've left this banner-link active just incase the CCCC webserver starts
working again, but don't be surprised if it is (like Francisco Franco)
still dead. (sorry, old SNL joke; you won't get it if you aren't my age
