So, December is here! The end of another year and time for our
double-sized holiday issue. Aphelion will return in Februaryto start
our 22nd year.
November was a lot of fun and a lot of work. Everything was busy, bsy,
busy. I got time to spend with my family for Thanksgiving. That's
always fun. Lindsey's oldest daughter came down to visit, bringing her
nine year old son Jamie, and they went to Thanksgiving dinner with us
to meet up with Mom, my brother & sister, and their families. A
good time was had by all.
Last week I released a new album on my Bandcamp site. Friday night and
Saturday I released three more. The first one is steampunk music--all
based on the theme of airships as a trope vital to steampunk. The three
after that are all live music fom my garage band days--back in the
1980s. So that gives me seven albums out now. All of them can be
listened to for free, or downloaded for a small fee. If you want to
give them a listen head on over to
my Bandcamp page.
As per our usual practice, each editor has looked back through their
airchives for a set of stories they feel were outstanding through the
whole year. Another special treat, butought to you by Sergio, is a
brand new Mare Inebrium story. There should be plenty to keep you busy
until we return in February.
My wife and I have just gotten back home from spending the day
celebrating her upcoming birthday. Dinner at a nice restaurant, a
little shopping for holiday decorations, and back home again. So I'm
going to keep this short and to the point.
Whether you celebrate any Winter / Year End holidays or not, I wish you
and yours the very best. May life treat you well, may you be safe and
happy, and may good health find you. May you be blessed!
All right, it's about time I shut up and let y'all get to reading the
eleventh issue of Aphelion of 2018! Enjoy!
