back for our 14th issue! I'm finally through with the whole issue!
Sorry I had to delay so long. Its my own fault, I spent too much time
working on a novel and not enough time working on Aphelion. This is a
big issue- I have 38 stories ready so far, and there are at least some
more sections of my own serialized story that I'm still working on.
I'll be adding them as I finish them. Once again I appologise for the
delays. If anyone would like to become an Assistant Editor, just e-mail
It really looks like I'll have to discontinue the mailing list!
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!
However, the Mailing List has grown to such a size that I've started
getting bounced from some servers as if I were sending out spam!
(OUCH!) So, I may have to discontinue the mailing list. AOL and some of
the other services have already given me problems about the list and
refused to deliver the messages- if you're on AOL and haven't been
recieving the "New Issue" notices, that's why. I'm sending, but they
won't let me get through! Unless things improve I'll have to
drop the mailing list.
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.
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
had 2089 Readers visit Aphelion in Febuary/March! WOW! I'm really
floored by that count!
Thank you! Please keep coming back for each new issue as it goes online.

with the last issue (February/March -- #13), Aphelion has shifted 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 year
or two, 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.
started working more overtime at my regular job so as to make ready to
buy a house.
started submitting stories to the paying publishers again and need more
time to write.
I'm fighting a case of burn-out from the workload of producing Aphelion
you all, for you make everything that happens at Aphelion worthwhile.
