This issue has turned out to be rather longer than expected,
which is becoming more and more of a common practice as I put out Legends. But
Im happy that it happened in this particular issue. I have readied
envelopes to send a lot of copies to some great friends in alt.gothic. So
Im glad that the issue I have to present them with has come out so
This issue closes the Dark Harvest III coverage I planned.
Coming up in the future well see an interview with Mean Little Man
Productions. Also, Gillian G. Mason will soon return with another of his
fantasy thrillers. Plenty of humor and more laughs are coming your way. Even
the likes of Calamity Corner will return soon. And Chuck Lapp III is due to
grace some future covers with more original artwork.
Im sure youll all be happy to know that my legs
are just beginning to feel normal again after the horrible (yet fun) pummeling
they took at Vans Warped Tour. And youll also be happy to note that
I wasnt dropped on my head while there; an occurrence not wholly welcomed
at the D-Generation/Offspring concert in New York City the previous Saturday. I
may still write a Warped Review or something of that nature, though
calling it a review would be misleading. It would probably turn out
more like a humorous day in the pits type of rant. Maybe Ill
sit down and do that tomorrow or Wednesday.
Also, Im working on possibly creating an
Alt.Gothic Special Issue. I already have submissions from Nicolai,
JohnnieB, Loki, Lasky and Knightmare for use in the future, so I figured
Id bundle them together in one issue. That remains to be seen, however,
and is only an idea Im tossing around in my head. I guess well just
have to wait and see. But, needless to say, I have plenty more to keep Legends
going for a long time. I hope everyone enjoys reading these as much as I enjoy
creating them. Legends Magazine has grown into something that is more than I
can claim. Its owned by all of the people who read it, write to it,
submit to it
its a communal magazine now and all I do is put
everything together in one piece. Its people like you, who read and
submit to me your own stories, poems and more that makes it possible for this
magazine to continue on.
And continue on we will, kiddies. Legends No. 100 is just
around the next dark stretch of highway. Hey
you want to see something
Peace, Love and ALL the trimmings (but not the FAT)!!!
