****Please Add 1155 to the above
count 'cause our counter broke down!****
Welcome back for our 4th issue! We're still
out some bugs but I believe we'll be out of the shakedown phase in the
next few issues. In this issue there are new writers, new chapters in
our continued stories, updates on our reports, a letter column, and a
new cartoon. 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.
Our counter crashed early last month and a replacement was not
up-and-running for several days. Therefore I have no way of knowing the
exact number of readers for April. More than 484 of you read our third
issue. (We estimate the total to be somewhere around 660 if the average
number of visitors per day held true) Thank you! Please keep coming
back for each new issue as it goes online.
I have an e-mail address for submissions, click
here to submit a story or just read the submission guidlines.
For now I hope everyone will bear with me while I get the Zine on it's
feet. Some folks have asked about submitting Poetry: While we do not
publish poetry ourselves, there is someone for the poets to turn to- The
Writer's Club, a poetry Webzine run by one of our friends
from the DALnet IRC Chat network. Visit #the_WritersClub on DALnet and
check out the Writer's ClubWebpage if you are poetically inclined.
And now, I'll shut up and let you get to reading. Thanks again
visiting. Enjoy yourselves!
