Well folks, youve done it again. Youve read
through another entire issue of Legends. And now you must wait another month
before you can yet again read my wonderful writing. So neener neener nyah
On a serious note, this issue turned out much better than I
had anticipated. And I turned it out pretty quickly, too, as you can see by the
date and time stamp below. And it came out at a good size, too
black-jacks worth of pages.
On another note, Mark Walsh was nice enough to write in
letting me know how pleased he was with the interview I did with them, Sunshine
Blind and Dancing Ferret Concerts in the last issue. I threw it up in the box
[below], in case your blind. Thanks Mark! All I wanted in the first place was
Legends No. 72 is sure to be a hit. It will be my first
Alt.Gothic Special Issue featuring submissions from some of the brightest and
the best of Usenets alt.gothic newsgroup. It will also be the seven year
anniversary of Legends Magazine. Im going into my eighth year of printing
this little rag
the decade fast approaches. And you know something? I
think Im gonna hit it, too. Never thought Id be doing this for ten
Well, theres nothing much to say beyond what Ive
already spouted. So I guess all thats left to do is pique your interest
in the upcoming seventh anniversary of Legends, Issue No. 72. What to expect?
Oh, kiddies, theres going to be quite a lot. Fantasy fiction by Jeremiah
Blatz; horror by Rachel E. Pollok (Lady Bathory) and Loki; poetry from
Cymbeline and Omar Desoky; cyberpunk from Gillian G. Mason; rants by The
Lighthouse Keeper, Nicolai and myself; erotica from Lasky; and humor from
Knightmare. Ill leave it at that. Thats some of what you can
expect, but definitely not all as Im sure Ill have some last minute
stuff to shove in there.
So, kiddies, I hope you enjoyed this issue. It came out
well. And I hope youre all looking forward to the Alt.Gothic Special
issue. I am! And remember
if I get enough from all my friends on
alt.gothic in the way of submissions, I could always do it again
Peace and love kiddies! Its smoke break for

I wanted to thank you for covering the Sisters Of No Mercy
story in your TOO GOTHIC interview in Legends #70.
It was nice to have all parties (with the exception of
Andrew Eldritch) present to comment in an open and uncensored forum. It was an
interesting and entertaining interview, and although it was on a tense and
unpleasant subject, I was glad to see Caroline Blind and Patrick Rodgers field
the questions with characteristic humor and good taste.
All three of us were affected by this incident and it's nice
to see that we all came out intact, still friendly and stronger for the
Thank you and Legends for doing nice work and seeking the
truth in music.
