Welcome to the direct descendant of Dragon's Lair Webzine:

Shakedown Issue #2!

Issue 2, Volume 1

Issue 3 will be online April 1st.

You are vistor number to this page since Feburary 7th 1997.

Welcome back for our 2nd issue! We're still ironing out some bugs but I believe we're coming along just fine. There are new writers, new chapters in our continued stories, updates on our reports, and a new cartoon. Because their stories weren't online for an entire issue we've carried over two of the stories from issue 1. I'd like to thank those of you who have sent e-mails for your feedback. As you can tell, we've taken your suggestions to heart and made a few changes. Keep those e-mails coming, folks! Without those messages we will never know what we need to improve upon. 393 of you read our first issue! Not bad at all for a new Webzine.

I have been contacted by a pair of artists who asked about illustrating our stories, Robert Sankner and Laura Butler. Hopefully you will see their work soon. I have added links to their homepages to our Links Page so check out their work. I think we'd benefit from their efforts.

I have an e-mail address for submissions, click here to submit a story. A set of guidlines for those submissions is now online . For now I hope everyone will bear with me while I get the Zine on it's feet. And now, I'll shut up and let you get to reading. Thanks again for visiting. Enjoy yourselves!
