Ok, so I took a couple months off. It was
quite unavoidable considering the projects I was into. I've put a lot of work
into my online arenas, such as The Pan Pages (http://www.zenweb.com/pan) and
the Net.Goth Directory (http://www.zenweb.com/pan/netgoth) as only two
examples. There are others as well, but those were the two biggest I think.
Anyway, I'm back now and hoping I can continue to
bring you the best issues I can at least for a few months before I consider
taking another vacation again. I have a lot of good things going on. Now,
granted, Brian Brewer didn't finish Gertie Goth in time for this issue, but I'm
still working on him
kind of. But I have picked up some new writers and
have some interesting things going on. Dan Century will begin bringing you
music and concert reviews in the upcoming months including this month's review
of London After Midnight's "Oddities" (http://www.londonaftermidnight.com/) CD.
In addition I'll have upcoming reviews of Betty's Trash's latest, "Beauty
Sleep," Mara's Torment's "Dreams Like Mine" and more.
Also this month the Lighthouse Keeper
returns with "Freaky Bitches," another alt.gothic (news:alt.gothic) reprint.
And Jack begins Legends' newest mini-series this month with "The Undead Kid."
It's four parts and will run continually through to Legends #82 and hopefully,
by then, I hope to wrangle some more out of him.
More alt.gothic rants and reprints coming up in the next few
months with writing by Trickster, Cymbeline, Lighthouse Keeper, JohnnieB,
Jeff-Boy, Klaatu, Grimm, Tom Fosdick and many more so keep reading. Enjoy this
even if it was two months late.
Peace, Love and All The Trimmings
