Kicking off another month of dark music, gothic horror and various ramblings here. I find myself tonight at home without access to the Internet. So I put together this issue without all the articles due for it in hopes they are waiting in my e-mail box and I'll be able to get my hands on them and lay them in later. I'd much rather have everything on hand when I start a new issue, but sometimes you just have to make do.
Hopefully, and regardless of my lack of communication capability, I will be able to boot the May edition out on time and get it into all your grubby little hands. There's few sponsors helping us out this month, which means I'm dipping into my own pocket yet again to get it to you, so love me and love me well. Here's hoping that I can get some advertising in next month's issue so that I can get my wife to sleep with me instead of glaring at me. Or something. Oh, and being able to afford it would be nice of course. But a passion is a passion and passion's sometimes cost. And there we are.
With that in mind, some of you may not be aware that Legends Online is currently running a banner special for the first 25 slots open at the website. Banner advertising slots are 50% off the regular $75/month and $35/week rates if you are one of the first 25 reservations, and currently we have about five left at last check before we get there. These typically go fast so I would suggest reserving your slot today before they disappear and you end up missing this special offer. Help us grow damnit!
This month we bring you the next chapter of Eric Busby's Disoriented series with illustrations by Lee Alverson. The Mean Little Man has been a bit busy so I'm going to give him this month off, but Mike Ventarola returns with the latest music news with MP3: The Music Revolution. I discuss the novels The Mists of Avalon and Slide in this month's installments of Off The Shelf. Sue Simpson returns with Barrier. Also we have release reviews of Lycia, ohGr, Download, The Chameleons and many more in that vein. So in order to keep my sanity I'm going to close this month's installment of the Editor's Notes and jump right into this month's issue of Legends Magazine, where, as always, The Darker the Music, the Brighter the Mind!
