This is a very exciting month for me kiddies. The issue of
Legends Magazine you now hold in your hands is the beginning of my ventures
into the eighth year of the zine. Its going to turn out quite large,
double sized most likely, and I owe that fact to all the submitters this month.
The newsgroup of alt.gothic has become a new place for me to haunt. Ive
made a lot of friends there and I can always expect a wonderful assortment of
letters every day now
all well-received and greatly enjoyed.
A lot of those people have helped me in my efforts to make
Legends No. 72, the Seven Year Anniversary special, the best Ive yet to
produce. Seven years is a long time for a zine. This is a zine that was not
begun for money or profit, but for fun. In the last seven years I have met an
amazing amount of interesting people during the life of Legends. And many over
the course of this time have contributed in some form to this publication. From
ScottS, who provides the space to take Legends to the web, to Joey Hand who
designed the logo that I have used for years now. And Jaken Steele who has
acted as assistant editor for a period of time, to writers that have always
come back with something more interesting to read than their last.
This issue marks the longest list of submitting authors
Ive ever put out
nearly all from alt.gothic and all with something
interesting to say. Poetry, rants, raves, stories of horror and the
all lie in this months issue. To those that contributed, all
of you deserve my thanks. Seven years children
for seven years Legends
Magazine has been moving along. Those seven years may not have been the
there are always periods of time where things simply sucked. But
through it all I tried to bring this magazine out to you; sometimes late,
sometimes early, but always there. Im very proud of this magazine.
Sometimes too proud. But if you read just a few of the selections Ive
chosen to print this month, youll understand why.
Please send me your comments. The only way I can continue to
bring my readers what they want is if they tell me just that. Besides, I have
to keep going
theres only a few more years until Legends becomes a
Heres to many more years of Legends, and heres
to alt.gothic who made the issue youre holding right now possible!
