I have to say Im extremely pleased
with the way the last couple of issues have come out. Its so nice to have
run out enough of the review backlogs to now offer the bands that submit to us
a shorter timeframe before their reviews hit. Following some postal errors and
things like hurricanes and such some CD reviews have languished for a
year...really. Im very embarrassed about that, really, but lately
its been 1-3 months tops. Most within 2. Im very happy with
The down side is that just about all the CD reviews are
being done by myself, but Im dealing with that. I go on binges where
Ill write a dozen in a week so its being handled and that way we
dont have the postal debacles that snafu things up.
And also now that the reviews have been cranked out I can
start offering some things we havent seen in a while.
Essays...fiction...film and book reviews have heated up as well.
And at the risk of sounding mushy its way cool to hook
up with old friends like Klaatu (who appeared last month and has another coming
next month), Canticle (who as you know is our newest columnist with his
Ranticles) and April who hits us this month with Cold. Very nice
So delve in I guessanother diversified issue as we
move into 2006, Legends 16th year of running. As we move along well be
bringing you the second part of Dark next month, hopefully an interview with
Neil Gaiman, more music of course and a new crazy sci-fi piece called
Wires by T.J. Hardman, Jr. another who hasnt been around in
a while, since #98. Old friends, new stories...enjoy.
Oh and happy whatever-days. Im saying that because I
hope Christian fundies sue me like Walmart for not saying their word,
