And there we go with another
issue. Were struggling right now to catch up with all the music reviews
as you can tell and that trend will continue for at least another month or two
as we all try to get CD reviews to a 3 month timeframe if at all possible. The
Off the Shelf column is picking up lots of steam as well, and you can see that
I myself have been burying myself in plastic to get a lot of these reviews done
as well for ya. Im very happy with my producer right now so while
he handles all the business shit I can get back to the glory of writing...which
is why Legends started way back in 90 anyway.
This issue actually marks the 14 year anniversary of Legends
Magazine. You can see a snapshot of the first issue up above...a long way
weve come. Issue #150 is creeping up soon too.
Next month, well be bringing you a virtual ton of
reviews again...and thats about it as we get caught up. I have some
feature fiction coming up early next year alsoChancellor by an old
friend, Jeff Franzmann. And The Green Man, a fantasy debut by writer Len
Rely. Both of these feature illustration by Zubrovka.
Youll see some new Off the
Shelf reviews, many more recent. An interview with Jeremy Needle, author of
Elizabeth Must Die which was reviewed in this issue, coming soon. And
Harper-Collins is now servicing me regularly with unreleased and upcoming
material as well so that column is set to grow as we move ahead.
I mentioned next month...reviews galore. May Wiseman is now
cleaning up after she got hit with multiple hurricanes down in Florida, so
shes back on the ball and is slowly starting to catch up on her reviews.
And with missing a month or so in the recent past the CD piles grew nastily so
were concentrating on getting all those out for all of you bands and
labels waiting. More than twenty five full length reviews planned to run in 146
and, unfortunately for some of you that arent into the music and are
waiting for new fiction and such, not much else. I cant be dropping 50
page issues these days
